A healthy lifestyle should be a priority at any age, but as we get older, maintaining health and function is even more important to our overall well-being. Reach your peak by following these tips!
Get moving. Exercise regularly to maintain a healthy body and brain. Try taking a brisk walk, going to a virtual zumba class or on a bike ride to stay active.
Stay social! Although the COVID pandemic limits social interaction, we can still take a virtual class, play online games, or organize a virtual family or class reunion.
Add some spice to your life! Add herbs and spices to your meals if medications dull your taste buds. Seasoning can make a huge difference in how you enjoy your meals.
Stay balanced. Practice yoga or tai chi regularly to improve agility and prevent falls. Talk to your doctor about good stretches and exercises for you to do daily for balance.
Don’t forget! If you’re having a hard time remembering things or find yourself getting overwhelmed easily, do one task at a time. Don’t rush through activities and chores. Make lists, follow routines, slow down and organize.
