Spiritual leader Deepak Chopra has disclosed an important tip to help you look younger – changing your perceptions and thoughts can reverse the ageing process.
In a modern world that’s seemingly obsessed with looking youthful and stopping the ageing process,Chopra told talk show host Oprah Winfrey that he likes to follow the maxim,”People don’t grow old; when they stop growing,they become old.”
When asked by the chat show host on ‘Super Soul Sunday: Oprah and Deepak Chopra in India’ if he believes that one can change his/her age if they change their perception,he replied “yes”.
“There are 10 really very specific things that you can do to change your biological age. Your biological age means your blood pressure,your bone density,skin thickness,number of wrinkles,hearing,immune function…” the Huffington Post quoted him as saying.
He goes on to reveal how you can use the power of thought to reduce your age,from repeating a daily mantra to putting an end to the feeling of always being in a hurry.
“Change your relationship with time,” he advises. “Because if you’re always in a hurry,then your biological clock will speed up. People who are saying,’I’m running out of time,’ their blood pressure goes up,their heart rate speeds up.”
Another anti-ageing trick,he said was falling in love.”People fall in love [and their biological age decreases. So stay in the state of love all the time,” he said. In the clip,Deepak also mentions one of his own favorite anti-ageing activities: meditation.
