With lovely @anna40330
Had dinner at GRILLED AGING BEEF at Sjinjuku, but forgot to take photos of beef steak... I highly recommend this restaurant if you wanna have high quality beafsteak around Shinjuku, Tokyo.
It's #Tuesday and it's #transformationtuesday ! For most people, it is hard to tell the difference between growing (older) and it's evil twin, aging. In the picture above, actor Halle Berry is older but doesn't seem to age. Growth is good change that signals development. Aging is changes too, but not of the kind we want. This is because aging leaves you exposed to developing 'turkey neck', brittle hair, spots on skin, and ailments such as heart diseases, cancer, etc. While many people think these are natural as one gets older, it's been discovered that they are age-related and growing older doesn't have to mean aging.
How to 'unage':
Halle Berry who is 52 at the moment does not look any different from when she was 41. To achieve youth as we grow older, we must understand that there are things in our environment which are not growth friendly, and can cause the less glamorous side effects of aging. One of these are oxidants. Oxidants/radicals are chemical compounds in the environment or in food that affect body cells and are the main cause of aging, and wear and tear of the body. We are all exposed to oxidants, which is why we need antioxidants. Coconut oil, avocado oil/butter, aloe vera, honey, peppermint oil all have antioxidating properties. And can be a great addition to care regiment.
Also, exercise regularly, eat well, sleep well, rest well. You don't want to look young only, but to feel young too.
