Anti-Aging: The Benefits of Sense Exercises



Why is it important to keep our senses in good condition and how are they going to help us?

If our senses are preserved in good condition, we are able to avoid many unwanted, sometimes dangerous situations. We may:

  • escape road traffic accidents by keeping our hearing and vision in top form
  • prevent nutritional problems by having a reliable sense of taste
  • avoid accidents by smelling leaking gas, petrol or smoke
  • reduce the risk of heatstroke or hypothermia by being more aware of temperature changes
  • avoid the risk of tripping over by keeping our sense of balance as normal as possible
  • avoid social isolation by making it easier to communicate with other people

Sense and Brain Exercises

As you make an effort to do physical exercises for your body, so you should also make the effort to do sense and brain exercises for your mind. These mental and sensory exercises should be performed regularly every day or at least every other day. If you don’t feel comfortable with a particular exercise, it is not necessary to persist with it, but find others which you do like. Use different exercises every day to keep yourself interested.

As part of your daily exercise plan, allow at least 15 minutes for doing physical exercises and 10-15 minutes for brain and sensory exercises. It can take a few weeks of practice for the exercises to feel comfortable and it may be a while before the refreshing effects become apparent. The effects will be more marked if you really let yourself go and have confidence in the exercises without inhibitions or interruptions. The more frequently you do each exercise, the better the chances of a positive result.

Remember, though, that these mental exercises may not be suitable for everybody. It is always worth checking with your doctor first.

The exercises will be more effective when they are done as part of a general anti-aging routine including suitable nutrition, proper physical exercise and the special supplements.
