Dr. Oz says the "major agers"the activities that age us the quickestinclude a diet high in fat and sugar, not getting enough exercise, lack of sleep and too much exposure to the sun. The number one ager is stress.
But experiencing some stress is not always bad. "It wakes us up. Makes us alert. We learn better sometimes when we have a little bit of stress."
The danger of aging comes when we don't know how to counteract negative stress. "If we don't do it right, if we don't really understand what's happening inside of us, then the whole thing begins to become unwound," Dr. Oz says. "So we're going to teach you how to become more responsive to the stress in the world around us. It starts in your body."
