Top 10 Methods to Beat Aging

Baby Boomers who grew up in the carefree “free love” days of the 60’s or 70’s or the “rocking” times of the 80’s are not ready to throw in the towel and wait for the devastating effects of aging.  Instead they are seeking ways to remain healthy and to keep a youthful appearance as long as possible.


This infographic reveals the Top 10 Methods to Beat Aging.  Although I agree with all of the suggestions except for one. Instead of  a Facelift, I would prefer to receive a series of wonderful facials and do some facial exercises and followup with a special cream to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  Surgery of any type, even voluntary and merely cosmetic, creates an unknown risk and possible long term healing.


What is missing from this list is living with a purpose, feeling enthusiastic about projects and activities, using your brain to learn something new consistently, developing a happy and grateful attitude and disposition, positive friendships, spiritual connection and a sense of belonging to a caring community.

The only anti aging method I would not try is face lifts – my wrinkles form a road map of my life’s experiences. Without them I may not know where to go next :-). I had to look up Glutathione and was pleased to read that we can build that up eating anti-oxidant rich foods so no supplements needed.

I agree that I would not use surgery as an anti-aging method. Surgery, in my opinion, should only be done when there is an emergency such as the time I pulled apart a small vacuum cleaner and one part went right into my eye and a few weeks later I had a torn retina. Even then, it wasn’t surgery; instead he used a freezing technique. When I broke a finger, I need surgery to straighten and aline the finger. But we have all heard horror stories about surgeries gone wrong or people dying from a virus caught while in the hospital.

So much better to accept and even love the marks of our aging process as you have expressed.

I also want to beat aging. It’s one of my goals because I will turn 30 in a couple of months. Aging problems will start occuring. I want to have a clear skin.

It is not enough to “look” healthy. We also need to feel and actually “be” healthy to enjoy life to the fullest at every age.

Hi Dr. Erica,

Other than #’s 3, 5, &6 in the infographic, your points in the paragraph before the graphic, are more apt to provide us kids on the far side of 55 greater benefits.

Love this site, btw…;)

Our attitude and using our brain in productive activities can make a huge difference in how well we age. But studies are revealing that our diet, hormone levels, sleep and many other factors can affect our health – even long after 55. Problem is, once an organ or organ system has been damaged for many years, we may not be able to completely reverse the problems. I believe that so many people are taking medications for physical problems that could have been prevented. But even with the best of a healthy lifestyle, aging does create health challenges. Being surrounded with love and community can make a huge difference in how we cope and heal from whatever ails us.
