This is the No. 1 lifestyle mistake that will ‘make you age faster,' says longevity doctor

Many people believe that they are doing everything they can to stay young, when in reality they are doing things that are accelerating the aging process. The biggest mistake is not getting enough sleep.

This is the No. 1 lifestyle mistake that will ‘make you age faster,' says longevity doctor

Although aging is not completely understood, it can easily be divided into two categories - intrinsic and extrinsic.

Intrinsic ageing is caused by genetic factors. Extrinsic ageing can be attributed lifestyle choices such as alcohol consumption, smoking and diet.

I help celebrities, athletes, and executives biohack their bodies to improve their health by using extrinsic variables.

Poor sleep is my No. 1 mistake that will make you age faster. You will age faster if you make the following mistake:

Lack of sleep accelerates aging

Sleep is often compromised in our hectic lives. Evidence is mounting that

Quality sleep

The key to a long and healthy life is good nutrition.

The body heals by itself when we sleep. Sleeping 7 to 8 hours per night improves cellular health and tissue, immune function, energy levels, metabolism, and cognitive function.

Sleep deprivation can also lead to a number of health problems, including

High blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, stroke and depression


Sleep deprivation can cause:

Skin wrinkles and premature aging

Collagen and elastin are two proteins that keep our skin plump and firm as we age.

Research has been done on the topic.

Insufficient sleep can affect collagen and elastin strength, which could lead to wrinkles, skin laxity or sagging.

Cognitive impairment

Lack of sleep is a short-term problem.

This can lead to a decrease in motor skills and a slowdown of information processing. It also reduces our attention spans, emotional capacity and our judgement.


Sleep problems can cause long-term health issues.

Alzheimer's disease, cognitive decline and impaired memory are all associated with a higher risk.


Immune system weakened

The immune system is the first line of defense for our body.

During sleep, the immune system produces cells to help fight pathogens. The cells are moved to the parts of the body that need them at the end of a sleeping cycle.


It has been shown that if our sleep is disrupted, our bodies may be less able to combat these invaders. In addition, the recovery time from an illness could be longer.

The No. Slowing down the aging process is easy if you sleep well.

Lack of sleep can have a negative impact on your health. There are some simple changes that you can make in your lifestyle to improve the quality of your sleep.

Consistency is key

Consistent sleep patterns help maintain a healthy circadian rhythm.

After waking up, expose yourself to the sun.

to protect your sleep quality.

Sleep disorders


Create a relaxing routine for bedtime.

It is easier to fall asleep if you get into the habit to read a book, or take a warm shower.

Make your bedroom into a haven.

Invest in good sheets, eyemasks, mattresses, or anything else that will help you relax.
