And excitingly, this brain boost is independent of cognitive status, meaning even elderly who have already begun to exhibit cognitive changes will benefit from increasing their activity level. The results …

Anxiety Ages You: 10 Ways To Reverse It

Published February 5, 2015 in the British Journal of Psychiatry, a new study shows that anxiety increases the rate of aging AND that treating anxiety helps reverse the aging process!   Looking at over 2,300 patients with anxiety disorders and matched controls, researchers found that those with active anxiety had shorter telomere length than both those with no history of anxiety disorders and those with adequately treated anxiety disorders. Shorter telomere length is a known marker of aging, and the fact that telomere shortening can be reversed when an anxiety disorder is treated is awesome news.     Telomeres are …
