Ageing is the change in biology of an organism as it ages after its maturity. Such changes range from those affecting its cells and their function to that of the whole organism. As ageing is the natural process of growing older yet there are many factors that play a role in whether we age gracefully or if we are the one out of people who age faster than our biological. Globally, the population is ageing rapidly But the major concern in the current era is the “premature ageing†and not the natural ageing or what we can call blissful ageing, which can be due to several causative factors such as smoking, drinking, sun, moisture, perpetual anger, diet, excess weight, stress, free radicals etc.

The era that we live in is full of stress due to stressful tasks that line up our way. Chronic stress is one of the most important factor that accelerates aging by shortening DNA telomeres
