Nature Wants Us to Stay Young (and Here’s Why)
Let’s just be clear – we don’t think there’s anything wrong with ageing here at Nim-Véda Australia.
What we do strongly assert, however, is ageing gracefully and naturally.
We also believe that no one wants to (or should) age before their time.
Most importantly though, is to mentally get rid of the fear so many of us harbour with the idea of ageing.
Imagine the possibilities.
What would happen if we all started embracing the positives of getting older, how much more enjoyable would our birthdays be?
We’d be anticipating them excitedly the way we used to when we were all children.
Is this where you’re left scratching your head going no way, this sounds too good to be true?
Well, we’ve got news for you.
It isn’t and in the rest of this article, we’re going to show you just why that is.
Ageing is a Wondrous Experience – If We Just Change Our Mind-set
There are a variety of (what seem like) magical creams and lotions out there promising the next best thing to never ever getting old, products that claim they can kick the natural process to the kerb and they even have the mind-bogglingly expensive price tag we’ve all come to expect (not rightfully by the way) attached.
But have you ever stopped to ask why?
Why do these products even have a market, why do we spend so much of our precious time trying to halt what we all know is inevitable?
Many of us believe Mother Nature is ultimately devastatingly cruel but this is what society has trained us to think unfortunately. From a very young age, we are taught to believe that getting old is a negative experience instead of the positive one we can so easily make it.
Encouraging and nurturing a continued positive attitude towards ageing in our mind and spirit is what will finally set us free from the anti-ageing anxiety that many of us are immersed in as well as its traumatic aftermath such as sickness and ageing at an unnaturally faster rate.
When it Comes to Ageing, Nature is Friend, Not Foe
Here’s an undisputed fact.
The environment is here to help us.
It’s here to support us during our journeys in building our life altering decisions through the way we think and the best part is that the knowledge to truly set us free is 100% free. All we have to do is be patient, trust our instincts and be inspired.
There are an abundance of wonderful natural remedies on this amazing planet of ours that helps us to age gracefully and they are easily attained – if we just care to listen and reflect.
In fact, I would even go as far as to suggest that these gifts of Mother Nature won’t only help us age more exquisitely, they’ll want to make us embrace ageing, presenting us with more time to think of all the wonderful things that happen to us as we grow older. Such as treasured life experiences, the freedom to relax and “smell the roses” as we relish more me time and the ability to enjoy our families and any new additions alongside all the wisdom living and invaluable experience brings with it. We can’t buy that no matter how much money we have!
It is common sense to use what this stunning planet has created so bountifully for us seeing as we’re just one of the many creations of Mother Nature. It’s amazing to study how every continent has created something naturally useful for all its children. India has Neem (The Tree of the 21st Century as declared by the United Nations), Australia has Tea Tree Oil, the United States has Echinacea while Europe has Geranium – you get the picture. Nature has made it so that there’s something for everyone.
Now that’s a bargain unbeatable in any department store!
Save Face Naturally
Our face tends to be that part of the body we spend the most time obsessing about.
All you have to analyse to prove this fact is the increased emphasis our society spends on surgery enhancements for the face.
This isn’t surprising really considering the difficulty we have when it comes to protecting our face against the harsh elements of the wind, water, and the sun.
We often overlook the effects the sun has on our face believing that a wide brimmed hat will shield us adequately. Sure, we’re covered up everywhere else but what about our face and necks?
It is for this reason that our faces and necks desperately require some much needed tender loving care during our body’s much deserved down time.
How do we ensure our faces are being rejuvenated and actively defended against premature ageing naturally?
Enter the wonderful world of natural face oils.
There are a wide variety of natural face oil options that are truly magical when it comes to sheltering our face and in turn reducing not just the appearance (like most of the ads promise) but the actual existence of fine lines and wrinkles that aren’t meant to be there just yet.
Like most natural remedies, these natural solutions target the source of the problem rather than on the surface cloaked issues while the “real” problem is left to fester and aggravate beneath the surface – often discovered too late when it is.
Many natural oils also have the added benefit of being naturally effective against all the unique variations most of us face at different times in our lives.
Black Cumin Seed, for example, is considered as one of the greatest modes of healing medicine, particularly used to fight against a variety of skin conditions, including eczema, boils and cold symptoms.
Rosehip Seed Oil is brilliant in regenerating new skin cells – the ultimate way to naturally combat ageing properties that leave skin feeling fresh, youthful and rehydrated.
Most closely aligned in its attributes to the skin’s natural properties, Jojoba oil is the ultimate moisturiser that results in smooth, soft and hydrated skin due to its anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins, and minerals.
There are many more wonderful natural oils such a Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Black Sesame Seed Oil and Wild Himalayan Apricot Oil for the entire body as well.
How to Use Natural Products to Your Advantage All Through Life
There’s a reason Organic and Natural are increasingly popular buzzwords nowadays.
There’s also a reason why organisations everywhere are so single-handedly focussed on the use of natural ingredients in their ranges. People have finally (and not a moment too soon!) started truly listening to the oldest mother that’s ever existed – Mother Nature.
What we apply on and put into our bodies is probably the most imperative consideration for all of us when it comes to taking care of ourselves as well as our attitudes around ageing and how we approach the concept.
As the now old news of Johnson’s and Johnson’s Baby Powder’s Cancer scare reared its ugly head, it only added to the growing list of concerns products created from unnatural and damaging chemical substances have stirred over the years.
When large multinationals that many of us have blindly trusted for decades begin to appear under the spotlight for potentially life threatening diseases, it’s (overdue) time to get up and take notice – because money is honestly pointless if we don’t have our health.
Sourcing products that are organic and natural based are much easier than it used to be with a multitude of healthy options to select from (such as certified organic, organic, natural and Fairtrade).
All we have to do is make a short trip to our local health store or Cooperative the next time we’re grocery shopping to make the organic switch swiftly and comfortably.
The truth is, once you find a product that suits your unique requirements, your body is likely to feel and look a lot better in its thankfulness to you for making the right decision.
Ageing is Not a Dirty Word!
Hopefully, this article has eased the pangs of terrified fear we feel churning deep within the pits of our guts every time another birthday comes around every year.
Ageing is a definite reality that we are all faced with at least once a year but doing it well is something we can all accomplish easily.
Rather than brooding on the negative learnt aspects of growing older, we should instead focus on the happy, fulfilling positives our birthdays should really be about (in addition to this day being all about us)! Like spending more of our valued time with our loved ones, learning through truly priceless life experiences and being able to share that wisdom with our families and friends.
Remember all the wonderful life lessons we learnt from our grandparents and historical events and how we use them till this day?
Let us focus on how we can be that special, invaluable person for someone else into the future. Someone who will remember us for all the good we’ve done hopefully so that even after we leave these mortal bodies of ours, our lessons and memory will live on in the marks we’ve left on this beautiful planet of ours.
