A short exercise or a stretching routine, or warm up, then find an area in your community where you walk very briskly or run up a hill, and go as far as you can the first time, then each day keep adding to the distance, this helps to expand our lungs and strengthens our heart etc. I personally put this to the test and found enormous benefits of wellbeing.

Looking and feeling younger doesn’t require a lot of time or money. Following these easy tips and keeping a consistent routine could be just what you need to take a few years off your look.
