5 Tips to Stay Healthy as You Age

As you age, it’s important that you keep your mind, body, and soul feeling vibrant and rejuvenated. There are several ways to remain healthy and lively, but the best way is by enhancing your physical and mental health. Here are some tips on ways to stay healthy and happy as you grow older:

Eat a Well-Balanced Diet

One of the best ways to stay in good condition is a well-balanced diet. Eating a nutritious and vitamin-filled diet will help provide more energy throughout the day, giving you more motivation to do the things you love. Healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables and lean proteins are excellent, as they help your body but they also aid in brain function.

Seniors Who Exercise Feel Younger & Healthier

Sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to get moving and do something active. But adding a few exercises throughout your day can increase desired mobility, energy, and physical health. Simple exercises such as swimming, walking, or riding a bike are great options.

Whatever your age, you should also incorporate some type of strength training exercises to your workout. There are many benefits to lifting weights and they include:

  • Reduces the risk of falls & injuries
  • Helps you better manage your weight
  • Improves your quality of sleep each night
  • Strengthens muscles
  • Reduces symptoms of various health conditions

Drinking Water Is Even More Important as You Get Older

  • Improve your skin
  • Flush out excess waste & toxins from your body
  • Improve your mood
  • Fight fatigue & give you more energy
  • Better maintain your blood pressure
  • Improve your joint movement
  • Improve your oral health

As you strive to improve your water intake, consider implementing the following into your daily routine:

  • Drink one glass of water before every meal
  • Set reminders throughout the day to help you remember to drink
  • During each meal, only drink waterIf possible, carry a small water bottle with you throughout the day & sip on it regularly

Socializing Is Good for the Soul

Visiting with friends and family members is one of the best things that aging adults can do for their health. Joining one of the many groups in a senior living community will help you meet new people who share common interests such as a book club, game nights, or a regular walking group.

Be Healthy – Take Your Medications

Sometimes we need a little extra help to keep our physical and mental well-being in great shape. Medications can ultimately help improve your quality of life, so be sure to always check in with your doctor if you have any questions or worries in regard to your prescriptions. Never stop taking your medications without consulting your doctor.

Getting older doesn’t mean you have to feel older. Take care of your physical and mental health and have much more energy throughout your day. Check out all of the activities Ebenezer Senior Living community has to offer
