Viva la Vigilant

Never mind set backs and hardships, hardworking, goal oriented people tend to live longer, healthier lives.  Makes sense, doesn’t it?  They’re the ones who take their vitamins, manage their carbs, exercise, sleep enough, work hard, volunteer and maintain social connections, and it works!  All of these habits show an ability to focus and delay gratification, for the sake of long-term plans. It’s that “eye on the prize” mentality. The Longevity Project, conducted by Friedman and Martin showed that vigilance, an admirable quality, is a definite predictor of long life. Resilience and flexibility are also facets of this personality trait. Things...

In our communities, if one property is not well maintained, it affects the rest of the neighbors on the block and across the street.  If one home doesn’t keep up their lawn, next thing you know you’ve all got dandelions and grubs. Or, if somebody’s “storing” old rusted out cars, refrigerators and burned out Christmas lights, hanging by a thread, it affects the value of your property, by proximity and association.  So it goes in your cellular neighborhoods, as well.  In this case, the “bad neighbors” are toxic, senescent cells.  They start out as normal tissue cells, capable of reproducing,...

Don’t act your age

More precisely, you don’t HAVE to act your age.  You have influence over your chronological numbers. Age is not your destiny, a life sentence etc. etc. Actually, you can change your DNA to create a healthier you. You REALLY can alter your genetic code. You are not at the mercy of your ancestral genetics, behaviorily, emotionally or physically.  In fact, your DNA double helix is not a fixed, unchanging structure, as scientists erroneously thought in the past. DNA can morph in various ways, through positive mental states and the power of intention. In a study by HeartMath, human DNA, contained...

DNA’s not destiny

  All around the world, researchers are linking telomere length to disease conditions. A lot of diseases are much more common, as you age and as your telomeres shorten.  This is not just coincidental.  Scientific data associates shorter telomeres with all of these aforementioned diseases.
