Most of the time, we are caught up in what can be called small mind: the small world of self-concern, of wanting to get what we want and avoid what we don’t want.
This is the cause of our suffering — always running to distraction, procrastinating, caught up in worries and fears, worried about what people think of us, what we’re missing, what someone did to offend us, and so on.
It’s a small world we get trapped in, this worrying about ourselves all the time. And it leads to stress, anger, hurt, worry, fear, anxiety and distraction. Here at Upon the Rainbow we want you to get past all of this small mindedness. We want to offer insights on how to be awesome at life!
Another simple contributor to slowing aging is learning about, and then supplementing your diet with, antioxidants. Antioxidants are important to anti-aging because they break down free radicals. Free radicals — also called oxidants — are are electron-deprived molecules that damage cells. Weakened, damaged cells (and especially the DNA in these cells) result in what we know as aging: poorer general health, increased occurrences of diseases, and organ failure. Fortunately the science, medical, and nutrition communities have gained a sound understanding of the nutritional supplements that are high in life-extending antioxidants.
