Aah, the Golden Years – that time of life when you have retired and are free to enjoy the fruits of all your hard work – or so the theory goes. Unfortunately, this period in many people’s lives fails to live up to expectations – almost always because you and your body are aging.
Luckily, it’s never too late to start focusing on and improving your health. Here are some quick tips to make your golden years healthy years:
Being active helps keep your body healthy and functioning properly – especially when it comes to your heart, your joints and your muscles.
Studies have shown that people with a good social life tend to live longer so make sure you take part in sociable activities within your community.
Think about what you eat
We all know that good eating habits can give us a better quality and longer life, but many of us have had a poor diet for decades and it’s hard to break those bad habits. With more time on your hands now is the time to get the healthy eating bug.
Exercise your brain
It’s not just our bodies that need to stay active but also our minds so exercise those grey cells whenever possible. Read the newspaper, do a crossword, play chess or a card game – these are all good ways to keep your brain active.
