Healthy aging is so much more than a numbers game. Follow these 5 tips to minimize age-related health issues and make the most out of every year
There are entire industries dedicated to making products that help prevent wrinkles and other age-related physical changes.
The focus seems to be solely on appearances more so than anything else.
But is that really what healthy aging is all about?
We certainly don’t think so. To us, aging is about maintaining a healthy body and a sharp mind so you can enjoy the highest possible quality of life as the years go by.
And as it turns out, you have much more control over this process than you might think.
Today, we’ll be exploring 5 crucial tips that can help you preserve your health and live life on your terms as you age.
The three foundational principles or pillars of health are exercise, nutrition, and sleep.
Keeping up with these vital aspects of your wellbeing is arguably the best way to stave off age-related health issues and maintain a strong body and mind.
Let’s go through them one at a time:
As important as it is to keep your body active, it’s just as vital to keep your mind active.
When it comes to sharpening your mind, Harvard Medical School states:
Any mentally stimulating activity should help to build up your brain. Read, take courses, try “mental gymnastics,” such as word puzzles or math problems. Experiment with things that require manual dexterity as well as mental effort, such as drawing, painting, and other crafts.
Engaging activities like these can help preserve brain function and reduce the risk of age-related cognitive decline.
Tobacco use and excessive drinking pose a serious threat to your liver, cardiovascular, and even mental health as you age.
Specifically, drinking too much can dramatically increase your risk of developing cognitive issues later in life.
To protect your health for the long-term, avoid tobacco altogether and practice healthy moderation with alcohol.
For men, that means limiting yourself to two drinks a day and one drink a day for women.
As humans, our mental health plays a massive role in how we see and show up in the world.
Chronic stress and mood issues can affect your physical performance, productivity, energy levels, and more.
But when you spend time outside, enjoy a favorite hobby, or have quality time with friends and loved ones, you’re actually setting yourself up for healthy aging.
For example, research has shown that people who read, dance, play board games, and play instruments may reduce their risk of experiencing cognitive decline in their later years.
Additionally, Harvard Medical School reports that “strong social ties” are linked to a lower risk of cognitive decline, lower blood pressure, and even longer life expectancy.
So, always make time for what you love and who you love. It’s good for your health!
On the ride of life, you only have one body to carry you the distance.
Along the way, whether from normal wear and tear or an active lifestyle, we come away with all kinds of bumps and bruises.
It’s important to make space in our schedules for self-care to stay on top of these battle scars and improve our overall health.
That means setting routine doctor and dentist appointments, and making time for activities that provide a mental or physical reset––or both!
Regularly seeing your healthcare providers ensures you’re in good shape and helps you catch potential issues before they become too serious.
Outside the doctor’s office, you could meditate for ten to fifteen minutes to start your morning, or wind down with a relaxing yoga session at the end of the day…
You could treat yourself with a massage to relieve some mental and physical stress…
Or, if you’re looking for an all-around health and wellness solution, you could add BEMER therapy to your daily routine.
