Did you know that September is "Healthy Aging® Month"? The term was coined in by the company’s executive director and the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Carolyn Worthington. This event is now in its second decade, and it is still going strong. Ms. Worthington created this recurring event to tell anybody above age 45 that there’s still time to change habits and take control of one’s health.
Aging has been long given a negative connotation. A few common “aging fears” are:
* Declining health
* Self image
* Running out of financial means
* Not being able to do certain tasks on their own such as drive or run errands like grocery shopping
* Death in the family
* Fear of falling
* Living alone
* Inability to manage daily living activities
* Isolation or loneliness
* Loss of independence
* Getting care from strangers
Think of healthy aging as a process that involves your body, mind, and soul. Following are five tips of healthy aging that you should follow to look and feel your best.
Many people shy away from exercise. Sometimes, even a walk in the park appears to be a challenge. When we say “be active,” what we actually mean is any of your favorite physical activity such as walking, gardening, swimming, or yoga. As long as you are moving and remaining physically active, it will be counted as exercise.
Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, decrease sodium intake, limit the intake of alcoholic drinks, consume small serving sizes, and eliminate processed foods from your diet. The more colorful your plate, the more energized you will feel throughout the day.
Are you prone to tripping and falling? Aging brings about many problems such as frequent falls, failing eyesight, and forgetfulness. Along with regular medical checkups, make some changes in your house. Clear the rooms of excessive furniture and install handle bars to prevent falls.
Get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep. Sleep deficiency may lead to problems in memory, immune system, and concentration. It can also cause Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation.
Identify your stress triggers and find ways to reduce them. Seek therapy if you cannot handle the pressure on your own. A few tricks that can help you reduce your stress levels include journaling, listening to music, and doing a favorite activity.
If you start by making small changes, you won’t feel overwhelmed. You will immediate feel the change in your body, and including these tips in your regular routine will become quite easy.
