Staying Healthy and feeling your best is important at any age and that doesn’t change when you have a few more grey hairs. As we grow older, we experience an increasing number of major life changes, including career changes and retirement, children leaving home, the loss od loved ones, and physical changes.
Coping with change is difficult, no matter how old you are. The particular challenge for older adults is the sheer number of changes and transitions that start to occur. It’s natural to feel those losses. But if that sense of loss is balanced with positive ingredients, you have a formula for staying healthy as you age.
Healthy Aging means continually reinventing yourself as you pass through landmark ages such as 60, 70, 80 and beyond. It means finding new things you enjoy, learning to adapt to change, staying physically active, and feeling connected to your community and loved ones.
Having a good diet, exercise, joining social clubs and outings with friends and loved ones, keep us strong physically and emotionally.
