How To Feel Younger


Tuesday, February 05, 2013

True or False: To feel younger, just open your window blinds.

Answer: True. Looking out a window onto natural, outdoorsy scenes may reduce blood pressure and other markers of stress, several new studies show. More remarkably, in a 2009 experiment reported in the Lancet, older people in Hong Kong who lived near open, green spaces had longer telomeres, a portion of the DNA strand that often shortens and frays with age. In effect, they had younger cells.

We live in the country. Our home is on top of a hill and right on the edge of a woods. The view is BEAUTIFUL out of every window. Wild life is plentiful and each season brings its own color and beauty. I have often said to my husband, that looking out our windows is like a natural tranquilizer.........I guess I wasn't far off!

    My direct view is my swimming pool, but beyond there is some lovely greenery, and then a common pathway through the development, and my neighbor behind me has a large hedge. Not ideal view, but it is peaceful and makes me happy, so hope that helps my brain!

    Always knew you were smart. This country living does have its advantages. Main disadvantages seems to be the snowy road in winter.

    Interesting! I feel that way about the beach, but attribute much of it to the negative ions from the water.
