Try pushing back breakfast a bit and eating all your meals within an 8-hour window (for example, between 11 am and 7 pm). Called intermittent fasting, the strategy triggers your body to burn fat for fuel. This not only helps shed pounds, it also boosts the production of key cells known as stem cells. In fact, MIT scientists found that this one dietary change is enough to reverse stem cell decline. Why that’s key: When stem cell production and activation is robust, your body can heal cells, tissue and organs, slowing the aging process so you feel healthy and vital.
The wardrobe tweak to FEEL YOUR BEST
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
