September is Healthy Aging Month, an annual health observance focusing national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. It is never too late to “re-invent” yourself! Just because another year passes by, doesn’t mean it’s too late to find a new career, hobby, passion, or improve your health and wellness.
Fortunately, we live in a time where healthy aging is made possible by advances in modern medicine, such as regenerative medicine, and technology. Even the simplest activities can provide significant benefits to our daily health. Here are some tips that can help you stay healthy and feel young:
Physical activity is great for people of all ages and encourages healthy aging. It can help lower the risk of heart disease, improve strength and balance, improve mood, and improve the ability to think, learn, and make decisions.
Exercise can even be a social activity! It allows people to build relationships, encouraging others to live a healthy, social life. Set a goal to be physically active at least 30 minutes every day. Regular exercise can include walking, swimming, stretching, strength training, and more.
Healthy eating supplies the vital nutrients a person needs, and it doesn’t have to be complicated! Healthy diet plans emphasize fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat-free dairy. It is also important to include lean meat, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts. Alternative vegan and vegetarian diets are also healthy, but be sure to speak with your doctor about your specific dietary needs.
Engage your brain
Just as exercise improves your physical health, keeping your brain active can boost your memory and thinking skills. Our brain’s volume gradually shrinks with age, leading to cognitive changes. Fortunately, there’s a lot that we can do to keep our minds sharp. Stimulating activities that keep the brain active may delay memory decline that leads to dementia. Such activities could include doing puzzles, reading or daily journaling.
Research has shown that social relationships are important for successful aging. Late-life adults report liking and caring about their friends, feeling satisfied with their relationships, and reminding each other to stay healthy. Relationships offer emotional support and provide companionship through mutual interests and shared activities. While these trying times make it difficult to see your loved ones, you can stay socially engaged with friends and family by using technology like video chatting and social networks.
Instead of feeling that your best years are behind you, enjoy where you are at now and look forward to what’s to come! Nobody can avoid aging, so why not embrace the process? Set your mind in a healthy direction and focus on what you can do with your life now. We believe your best years may be ahead of you.
