Rejuvenate You with these 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace

I went through a rough patch recently and like a typical American I reached for some self-help.  I grappled with books on Buddhism, spirituality, religion, mysticism, Deepak Chopra (my favorite man and curiously, endlessly prolific), Eckhart Tolle, Pema Chodron etc.  I underlined, highlighted, took notes, meditated and did a lot of yoga.  But one of the best summer-uppers I found on how to feel peaceful was in a book by Dr. Wayne Dyer – a biggie in the world of self-development.

This site is about anti-aging and health but I realize I have largely overlooked the arena of mental health and spirituality which has a significant impact on how we age and evolve.  If we are stressed and angry we age more quickly, become sick and can be infertile.  In life, we are taught to buy expensive creams, cars, clothes and go to the gym to look good but we have overlooked training our minds.  We can all be sorcerers, witches, and deities if we learn to control our thoughts and direct them.   We can re-vitalize our bodies and our health with our mind.  You must think of your mind as a muscle you must learn to flex daily in new directions for rejuvenation and peace.

I am happy I read all of those books because I will now consciously try to teach my child how to think and to be aware of the words which she chooses ..  I am still quite overwhelmed by all that I am learning so I thought I would let Dr. Wayne Dyer talk to you directly through my notes on his book.  I read these every morning and try very hard to stick to them though I am still re-booting my hard-drive from its deeply ingrained foundation!

Yoga Positions that Help You Stay Younger by Triggering the Release of Good Hormones and Alleviating the Release of Bad Hormones

To be a luscious goddess or an ageless vampire you must also be a yogi. Now, I am not saying you have to do it full time or spend a lot of money on classes. What I am saying, is that learning about the yoga practice and choosing to do a number of simple positions at home on a regular basis can have MAGICAL anti-aging results. Have you ever seen a dedicated yogi that did not exude a youthful aura – in body and spirit? One benefit of yoga vs a gym is that you can do it anywhere as it requires no equipment. If you don’t know the positions get a dvd until you do. Personally, I aim to do my exercise routine – which is half yoga – 5 days a week for one hour. I make the time by either getting up earlier or going to bed later. But I make it happen – and the results are there. Continue reading

11 Ways to Increase Production of Anti-Aging Hormones Naturally

Given my hereditary vanity and my playgirl lifestyle, I was compelled – out of sheer preservationary panic – to extensively research anti-aging methods.  This research led to a hardy consumption of resources relating to hormones.

Hormones are the chemical messengers that keep our body in balance.  They control pretty much every system in our body including our reproductive system, our metabolic processes, our immunity, our digestion, our ability to regenerate and the speed at which we age. Continue reading
