Mind & Body Tools to Optimize Your Life
You too? Do you think getting older is synonymous with: the beginning of cancer, the start of alzheimer‘s and dementia, osteoporosis, heart disease, etc?
Yes, it does run in a lot of families. But there’s a reason for that. You know what really runs in a lot of families?
Culturally ingrained beliefs.
For example, at 50, you will start having health problems.
And at 65, you surely have to have some sort of oncome because your body is to old/weak to still work and be productive.
And so on…
People actually believe that after the age of 50 it’s all downhill.
Your beliefs about what a certain age means are far more powerful to affect your biology than you’ve ever been told.
Do you believe that after 40 it’s all downhill?
Do you believe too that, as you age, you’re doomed to suffer from age related diseases?
Do you believe that after a certain age, it’s the beginning of the end?
But really, getting older doesn’t mean you actually have to suffer from:
It is possible.
It’s what’s in your brain and mind that changes your biology.
What runs in your family is a series of beliefs.
Think of how your parents were like when you were younger.
What did they tell you becoming fourty was going to be like? Even if they didn’t talk about it, how did they show it? Or how did they live it?
What were the thoughts about being 50? About being 60?
It is your beliefs that affect your genes.
This is the new science of epigenetics. It is not the genes per se that make up your fate. It is the environment around the gene that effects how the gene is expressed.
And guess what:
You have the ability to change what you think!
You can change your beliefs.
You can have:
…than you’ve ever thought possible.
You cán release outdated beliefs.
Imagine what your life would look like if you shed those beliefs and create a new outlook on life.
Imagine the profound effect on your body.
You have it in you to make growing older an entirely different experience.
Growing older is inevitable, but aging really is optional. After all our brains and bodies rejuvenate, and new cells are being created every single day!
But making the decision to stay fully active and engaged in life is your choice.
