Negative emotions that accelerate aging

How we look and feel at a giv­en age is large­ly deter­mined by genet­ics. But it also hap­pens that the bio­log­i­cal age is ahead of the pass­port one — the body can begin to age ear­li­er. Why is this hap­pen­ing? And how can this be pre­vent­ed?

what causes aging


No mat­ter how you take care of your skin and keep your body in good shape, if you accu­mu­late neg­a­tive emo­tions in your­self, you will age faster. The emo­tions that we expe­ri­ence are con­nect­ed not only with health and the occur­rence of dis­eases, but also with the aging process. The more you let neg­a­tiv­i­ty into your life, the more you accu­mu­late in your­self unspo­ken expe­ri­ences, resent­ment, stress, aggres­sion, the faster old age will come.

This can affect both well-being and appear­ance. And at first you can look nor­mal, changes can only affect health. But if under the influ­ence of stress and expe­ri­ences you feel much old­er than you real­ly are, your health has wors­ened, then changes in appear­ance are just around the cor­ner.

So, what emo­tions steal youth from us and accel­er­ate aging?

1. Stress

Doc­tors say that with neg­a­tive emo­tions, stress in the body, the con­tent of the hor­mone cor­ti­sol increas­es, it is also called the “stress hor­mone”. An increase in cor­ti­sol lev­els in response to a stress­ful sit­u­a­tion mobi­lizes the body’s forces, as a result, the lev­el of amino acids, glu­cose, and adren­a­line in the blood increas­es.

But only short-term stress can mobi­lize the body and even reju­ve­nate it, but long-term stress, on the con­trary, starts the aging process. If the con­tent of cor­ti­sol is con­stant­ly ele­vat­ed, then the body wears out quick­ly: there is a risk of car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases, mus­cle destruc­tion, fat depo­si­tion, the process of tis­sue regen­er­a­tion slows down, stretch marks appear on the body, wrin­kles on the face, acne, etc.

2. Suppressed aggression, unspoken resentment

It is impor­tant to remem­ber that the more emo­tions are sup­pressed, the more they are dri­ven inside, the more prob­lems they bring to health. You need to let go of resent­ment and not accu­mu­late in your­self. They dis­rupt the work of the heart, blood ves­sels, res­pi­ra­to­ry organs, lead to clamps in the mus­cles. In addi­tion, sup­pressed aggres­sion and resent­ment accu­mu­late in the body in the form of tox­ins, stones, high cho­les­terol, which neg­a­tive­ly affects the gen­er­al con­di­tion and accel­er­ates aging.

3. Longing, despondency, dissatisfaction with life

These emo­tions dis­rupt the work of the heart, affect the con­di­tion of the joints. If you live with long­ing in your heart, suf­fer from lone­li­ness, all meta­bol­ic process­es in the body slow down, and after that, health fail­ures and changes in appear­ance grad­u­al­ly occur. And until you get rid of this oppres­sion, the body will exist in such a process.

4. Guilt

This neg­a­tive emo­tion turns into dia­betes, depres­sion, excess weight, and leads to chron­ic dis­eases. And all this inevitably leads to pre­ma­ture aging.

The con­nec­tion of emo­tions with aging is explained very sim­ply. One of the main caus­es of aging is the ces­sa­tion of cell renew­al and divi­sion. And if you are con­stant­ly depressed, noth­ing in life makes you hap­py, you have accu­mu­lat­ed a lot of bad feel­ings and emo­tions, you give a sig­nal to the body that every­thing is too hard, life is unbear­able, you can’t do this any­more. As a result, the body slows down the renew­al process­es and starts the aging pro­gram, as it con­sid­ers such con­di­tions unfa­vor­able for its life.

A bleak pic­ture, isn’t it? To pre­vent pre­ma­ture aging, be aware of what emo­tions can cause this process and work them out: learn to let go of resent­ment, do not accu­mu­late stress, do not indulge in despon­den­cy, get rid of guilt. If you under­stand that it is these neg­a­tive emo­tions that pre­vent you from liv­ing, it becomes much eas­i­er to get rid of them.
