Keeping yourself vibrant and youthful in your golden years does not have to be complicated. However, it becomes increasingly important to take care of your mind, body, and spirit as you age.
Here are some tips to help make your health and wellness a priority without complicating your life:
- Stay hydrated. Dehydration is a common cause of illness and sickness among the elderly population. Drinking at least 64 oz. of water a day is sufficient.
- Stay connected. Loneliness and depression hit the elderly hard. Therefore, it is critical that the aging have meaningful contact with friends and family regularly.
- Eat a balanced diet. A balanced diet ensures that you get all the proper vitamins and minerals needed to maintain proper health.
- Exercise daily. Moving your body at least 30 minutes per day helps alleviate pain, stiffness and keeps your muscles strong. In addition, maintaining your physical health can help prevent future falls.
- Find a hobby. Doing things that we enjoy brings about feelings of contentment and happiness.
With just a little bit of mindfulness and intention, staying healthy in your elder years can add longevity to your life!
