Essential Tips to a Healthier Lifestyle

By May 11, 2018My Blogs

Embrace your age and develop a positive attitude. 

  • Be Socially Engaged
  • Have a Plan for Your Later Years
    • People live longer with greater independence so think about what we might want to do, whether it’s spending more time in the gardenor learning a new creative skill.
  • Watch Your Stress Levels
    • People with greater work stress in midlife are more likely to show disabilities and physical difficulties in older age. However, according to Luigi Ferrucci, MD, PhD, scientific director of the National Institute on Aging, if you never have to react to anything demanding, the mechanisms in your brain that help you deal with taxing situations will atrophy so striking a balance is key.
  • Stay Physically Active
    • Look at getting older as an opportunity, a chance to really focus on what is important to us versus messages that convey our bodies are losing vitality and our minds are losing acuity.
