Tips For Staying Healthy At Any Age

Posted by Deb Spinelli on 11/17/2015
Aging involves progressive changes that become more noticeable as time passes. Regardless of these unavoidable changes, however, there are many things that you can do to ensure that you maintain your health and longevity and decrease your risk for physical and mental issues as you age. Not only are people today living longer lives, we're also living healthier lives well into our 70s, 80s, and even 90s and beyond. So what are the keys to living a long and healthy life?
  1. Make healthy choices throughout your life. This includes not smoking, eating right, adopting good hygiene habits, exercising regularly, and reducing stress in your life. So if you smoke, quit. If you live on fast food and bacon, discover the joys of salad and whole grains. If your hygiene is poor, improve it. If you're a couch potato, get up this instant and go take a walk. If you're stressed out, do something to help you relax.
  2. Have a positive outlook on life. Sure, things happen in life. Life happens. However, when the not so great stuff pops up, how you do with it has a huge impact on how it affects you. So rather than wallowing in negativity, adopt a positive outlook. Research shows that a positive outlook can effect, not only mood, but also health, well-being, and even recovery from illness. When life hands you lemons, instead of complaining about it, make a meringue or a delicious lemon sorbet.
  3. Don't be a stranger to your doctor. Regular routine visits to a qualified healthcare provider is a key factor in maintaining long-term health. The routine diagnostic tests that your doctor performs can be life-saving. Many conditions, including cancer and heart disease, can be prevented or effectively controlled if spotted early on. So rather than waiting until you get sick to set foot in your doctor's office, make healthcare a habit. Get regular checkups and don't skip routine preventative measures, like colonoscopies, mammograms, and blood tests.
