How to age gracefully? Has this thought been crossing your mind lately? You are not alone with it!

The first thing to understand is that all of us are afraid of aging, and it’s okay to feel that way! Indeed, as time flies, the number of candles on a birthday cake may become a bit daunting. This especially applies to women, who often tend to have depression caused by aging. Some things get better with age!


The key is to approach every year of life as an exciting new chapter! Every moment of our lives is beautiful, so it’s vital to take the most of it and, in this article, we will tell you how!

1. MEDITATE

Although most people recommend doing sports (which is, without a doubt, important) to stay healthy and young, we are not going to remind you of that. Instead, we would like to insist on the regular practise of meditation!

In our fast-paced world, it is quite hard not to go nuts under pressure. It causes lots of stress, which contributes to faster aging. Thus, it is important to let yourself take a break, relax, breathe, and meditate! Adding meditation to your daily routine will help you feel more relaxed. Not to mention its positive effect on health.

Many famous people promote meditation. Eva Mendes (43) and Jennifer Lopez (47) both call meditation the key to graceful aging, and we have to admit that they look flawless!

2. FIND A HOBBY

One more thing you can do to stop feeling the age and make every day memorable and fun is to find an exciting hobby. Here are some examples to opt for:

  • Gardening – Andi Macdowell is going into her 60’s and still looks fabulous. She says that gardening is her secret of youth. First of all, this hobby helps her to remain slim and toned. At the same time, it is good for her diet as she always has a bunch of fresh fruits and vegetables!
  • Running – many famous people, including Julie Bowen, made morning running a habit and all highlight the positive effect of this hobby on their wellbeing.
  • Art – it is a sound therapy from stress and aging, and it can be pretty much anything from painting to writing poems. The more you devote yourself to creativity, the less aged you become. Scientist claim that mental action also can be count as art. For instance, if you are eager to work at essay writer service such as Essay Pro or the translation agency, your brain will remain young and adaptive because of the constant thinking process.
  • Extreme hobbies – while most people prefer to age stress-free, some celebrities don’t agree with that. For example, Harrison Ford flies planes and helicopters, Madonna enjoys horseback riding, and Bill Murray is a skydiver!

3. GET ENOUGH OF SLEEP

  • So much has been said about the importance of sleep already. However, it is impossible to avoid this tip talking about graceful aging! If you will feel refreshed and full of energy, you will stop feeling the age and will rather start enjoying every moment of life to the fullest! Deprivation of sleep, on the contrary, makes people look older.

Jared Leto, who is now 45 (although he looks much younger), claims that all he does for looking young is getting enough of sleep every day. Other celebs, including Jenifer Aniston, Oprah, and Bill Gates also give credits to healthy sleep and claim that they need it to look good and stay creative.


If you will feel refreshed and full of energy, you will stop feeling the age and will rather start enjoying every moment of life to the fullest!

4. USE SUN PROTECTION

Most of people love sunbathing in the summer. But not many consider the harm that ultraviolet can cause to their skin. Though the sun nourishes us with vital vitamin D, it also accelerates degeneration of collagen in our skin. In simple words, it makes your skin age faster.

To avoid the damaging effect of sun rays, dermatologists advise applying sun protection each time you are going out on a hot day. Sunscreen moisturizes your skin, keeps it smooth, and protects from ultraviolet. Wearing a hat and sunglasses is also a good idea. These tips will help preserve the elasticity of the skin and protect you from wrinkles, dark spots, etc.

A good example of graceful aging is shown by a famous actress Nicole Kidman. Nicole has recently crossed a point of 50 years, but she remains an etalon of beauty. Looking at her glowing skin, many fans are wondering how she keeps it so young-looking. Well, guess what? In one of her interviews, Nicole admitted that using sunscreen is among her daily must-do’s.

5. KEEP UP WITH THE LATEST TRENDS

Getting older doesn’t mean that your style should “look older” too. Keeping up with trends and revising your style can actually help you feel younger. Yes, you can stick to a more classy look, but why not to spice it up with a trending accessory or some vivid colors!

Talking about style, we can look at Carmen Dell’Orefice and George Clooney. Not only they always look stylish, but they are also not afraid to embrace their grays, and they rock it!

FINAL WORDS

All tips mentioned above will help you look younger and always stay in trend. Some of the reasons why people are aging without pleasure are tiredness, health concerns, stress, and depression. However, eventually, it all comes down to the fear of getting old. Forget about this fear and use the tips given above, and your life will transform! Add to this drinking plenty of water, having a healthy diet, exercising, and you will rock it regardless of age!

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

By- Salil Gewali

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
