Looking Ageless and Make The Most Of It

A new acquaintance asks, “How old are you?” You have your reasons for not wanting to answer them, but the fact is that it’s a very difficult question to answer accurately. The reason is that there are three types of age: chronological age, biological age, and psychological age. Looking ageless is about taking charge of the ages that you have control over. We will go into more detail on each age, and then give you suggestions for making the most it.

Chronological age – This is simply a function of the day you were born. If you were born 50 years ago, then your chronological age is 50, and there’s not much you can do about that. When people ask you how old you are, they usually want to know your chronological age, however, there is much more to age than dates on a calendar. That being said, your chronological age serves as a useful point of comparison for the other types of age.

Biological age – While the calendar gives you one idea of age, your body will have its own idea about how old you are. Things such as your brain function, cardiovascular system, strength, endurance , and balance fall under this category. Genetics do come into play, but there are plenty of other factors that you can do something about.

Psychological age – You could be 30 and feel like you’re 60, or vice-versa. “You’re only as old as you feel” sums up this age quite nicely. How you feel will be reflected in how you look, so don’t underestimate the power of positive thinking.

Now that you have a better understanding of the full meaning of “age” you can start doing the right things for looking ageless. We will start with your biological age, and then move on to your psychological age.

Taking care of your health is the biggest secret to keeping your biological age lower than your chronological age. Eating the right foods and getting plenty of exercise are a good start. Do your best to eat foods that are close to their natural source, and focus on eating whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean meat, low-fat dairy, fish, and healthy fats. Be sure to get the full range of nutrients and enough fiber.

When it comes to exercise and looking ageless, the key is to vary your routine. Cardiovascular exercise should be done most days of the week, and is any form of exercise that gets your heart rate up (walking, jogging, bicycling, boxing, and so on). Resistance training, such as weight lifting, helps keep your muscles strong. Balance and flexibility exercises should also be done on a regular basis as they help your overall fitness level and quality of life.

Your psychological age is all about having the right attitude. The more happy and positive you are, the younger you will look and feel. Embrace life and all that it has to offer. Don’t forget about prayer and meditation because they also have a positive effect on how you feel.

Bipolar Manic depression. These terms are used interchangeably to describe a relatively common mental illness. The terms are often misused by lay people in common parlance. Exactly what does it mean to be “bipolar?” Manic depression is a complicated illness featuring a diverse set of symptoms. Let us look at the illness’ traits to get a better idea of what it is all about.

The hallmark of the condition is a cycling between emotional extremes. A person with a bipolar disorder will experience deep depressive states and periods of manic euphoria. This move between the two ends of the emotional spectrum is why those with the condition are referred to as “bipolar.” Manic depression is a combination of wild emotional swings between inappropriate bliss and debilitating depression.

Many of those who have the disorder are, at least at first, misdiagnosed. One may be labeled depressed instead of bipolar. Manic depression combines the symptoms of “standard” depression with mania and those who seek treatment often only do so when at a low point. Clinicians may interpret symptoms such as listlessness, despondency or suicidal ideation as a depressive disorder when the patient is actually bipolar. Manic depression does not necessarily involve quick bobs between extremes, so one may appear to be depressed and their tendencies toward mania may not be recognized immediately. In other cases, a manic bipolar may display symptoms of a different mental health condition and by misdiagnosed until depressive tendencies are noted.

There are those who move more quickly between extremes. Someone in that situation may be termed a rapid cycling bipolar. Manic depression of this sort is usually easier to spot because the person in question either will be coming off a “high” period or will experience a period of almost-deranged euphoria in the near treatment. Although rapid cycling may make it easier to diagnose the disorder, it can also be quite traumatic and poses a series of treatment challenges.

Regardless of the particular form of the illness, bipolar disorder is responsive to treatment. One does not need to feel trapped in a permanent cycle of difficulties simply because he or she is bipolar. Manic depression can be handled with pharmaceutical interventions and by the use of therapeutic protocols. The disease is, however, quite serious and one should not try to handle the matter by himself or herself if he or she is bipolar. Manic depression requires assistance from a medical professional.

Those who suffer from manic highs replete with inappropriate feelings of invincibility, excessive energy and disproportionate euphoria who the experience the horrors of utter despondency are often referred to as bipolar. Manic depression is a unique, but treatable mental health challenge.

A rapid cycling bipolar experiences extreme emotional ups, followed closely by equally severe depressive lows. Although all bipolars cycle between extremes, those who cycle rapidly are usually easier to diagnose with the disorder.

A rapid cycling bipolar will not have a prolonged “lull” in the so-called “middle” before moving from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. This differentiates the rapid cycler from other bipolar patients who may take an extended period to shift extremes.

That delay in cycling between emotional states can make it difficult to correctly diagnose someone with bipolar disorder. A medical professional may see someone exhibiting a series of symptoms such as exhaustion, despondency and suicidal ideations and then proclaim the individual is depressed. That diagnosis may be correct only in the moment if the person under consideration is bipolar. Until a manic episode is recognized or displayed, the true nature of the disease may be concealed. That is not the case when one has a habit of rapid cycling.

Bipolar disorders that feature rapid cycling are somewhat easy to spot. That is because the person seeking assistance or under evaluation will have moved through a very different emotional experience only a short time earlier. After weeks of exuberance and manic euphoria, the individual may immediately “nosedive” into a state of deep depression. Likewise, a seriously depressed person may suddenly find him or herself overjoyed without any observable cause. In these cases, the rapid cycling bipolar will probably have some understanding of their sudden mood shift that can be self-reported. In other cases, the behavioral shift will have been noted by someone close to the individual or an observant medical professional.

If there is an “upside” to being a rapid cycling bipolar disorder victim, it is the fact that one may be more likely to receive an accurate diagnosis of his or her condition than may the manic depressive whose experiences on either extreme of the emotional spectrum are spaced further apart. Although diagnosis may be easier, however, one’s condition can be more difficult to treat if it features rapid cycling.

Bipolar patients who “bounce” between extremes offer a unique challenge to clinicians. They often require a great deal of attention and it can be very difficult for the patients to maintain a proper pharmaceutical regimen. In many cases, the extreme fluctuation in emotional states can be more traumatic than might be a slower shift. The overall toll on someone who cycles through emotional extremes so quickly can be quite devastating. If you or someone you know exhibits potential signs of having a bipolar disorder, seeking immediate professional medical assistance is strongly advised.

Bipolar disease is relatively common and, in many cases, is very responsive to treatment. Although the move from manic to depressed may take a longer time in some individuals, another may make the moves quickly, making him or her a rapid cycling bipolar.
