First off, this thin yet over sized book is very pink, but never judge a book by its cover. The ‘Forever Young’ Regime by Rajani Kanth’s has twenty-six chapters and offers the tools and strategies to live your entire life in a young vital body, with a young vital mind and spirit. For anyone who is a non-believer it is possible to always live in a young state of being, and the book tells the reader exactly how to get there – the mysteries of living forever young are available to us all!
Some of the advice is tried and true, such as the advice to take nutritional supplements (vitamins) for better health. Other advice concerning changes to the psychological and behavioral being that lives within us all takes more time to process, but will undoubtedly worthwhile to explore. Kanth also offers advice on aging, food and drinks, nutrition for health and youth, alcohol and caffeine use, fasting, exercising, anti-oxidants, aging, and much more. Much of the advice comes from the author’s personal experience and he does offer a way for anyone to live better today.
For example, in chapter seven, titled “Swallowing It,” the author writes that whenever we are in the throes of a stressful or anxiety-ridden confrontation, we should stop what we are doing and check out. This means we should literally shut down, check out our emotions in relation to the event, and reflect on the problem as well as check out our meter of madness to help us neutralize the issue at hand.
My epiphany moment while reading this book came when I realized that people who are constantly angry and upset do have their faces “frozen” in angry personas (remember when our parents used to say this would happen, well it does). These people who are habitually unhappy will not age well, and their angry faces will likely show someone who is several years older than they really are in age.
I have tried the chilling out technique that was recommended in the book and was surprised to find out that this technique works to my advantage 100% of the time, and is a great way to diffuse an argument with friend and foe alike. The book has tips for anyone of any age; the writing style is slightly stream of consciousness, but with a humorous flair. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in finding a more peaceful balance in life overall and to anyone who is health conscious or who wants to be but does not know where to start.
