She never denies her age, her wisdom or her life that she has lived. She also looks better now than she ever has, thanks to her making the effort to really take care of and nurture her body and her soul.
Perhaps that is the trick-to really start to nurture and care for your body and soul. Exercise, good nutrition, time for contemplation and solitude, stress reducing therapies and a wide variety of natural supplements can all help us to “age with grace and dignity”.

So eat your fruits, vegetables and whole grains, the antioxidants from them will help to protect your body from free radical damage.
