Are you still in your late 20s or early 30s and start seeing wrinkles on your face or feeling easily drained out halfway through your day? If you don’t like what you’re experiencing, it may be the time to evaluate your everyday routine.

The food you eat, the things you do, and even the way you sleep can affect your body’s aging process. To reverse this, here are the age-accelerating activities to avoid.

  1. Multitasking

Multitasking is good at some point, but most of the time not. Doing several things at once creates more pressure and stress, therefore triggering your system to release more free radical—the molecules in the body responsible for aging. A better and healthier option for you is to concentrate on one task at a time.

  1. Prolonged Sitting

Studies show that people who spend most of their day sitting have higher risk for cardiovascular diseases, kidney diseases, cancer, and obesity. If your work requires you to stay at your desk for eight straight hours, squeeze in some time for exercises or go to the gym at least thrice a week to sweat and stretch those muscles out.

  1. Slouching

Slouching in front of the computer for hours can cause your spine to form a hunched posture overtime. Poor posture hampers the spine from maintaining its normal alignment, thus abnormally stressing the disks, muscles, and bones. Practice good body posture by making sure that your ear, shoulder, and hip are aligned when seated.

  1. Not Using Sunscreen

Driving, gardening, running errands, and walking your dog on a daily basis actually cause more damage to your skin than spending a day at the beach. Keep in mind that the number one reason for premature wrinkles is ultraviolet exposure. Therefore, it’s essential to make applying sunscreen a part of your beauty regimen every single day to maintain a youthful looking skin.

  1. Not Getting Enough Sleep

Skimping on sleep doesn’t only result in dark eye bags, but it’s also linked to shorter lifespan. Sleeping for at least seven hours is recommended. However, if you see signs of sleep deprivation (e.g. mental sluggishness, weight gain, attention problems, lack of daytime energy), make sure to go to bed earlier.

Those are just some of our daily habits that can age us much faster. If you want to look and feel younger than your age, then you know what to do.
