Tips to Healthy Ageing!

It's Never too late

It's never too late to start leading a healthier lifestyle. Even well into their 60s and 70s, adults can take action to reduce their risk of developing chronic disease. It’s an old myth that after age 60, 65 there's just nothing you can do anymore. But there are lots of things you can do to improve your function and your health well into older age. There is certainly going to be some changes that occur with getting older but it doesn't have to mean disability or disease.
Amp up your fitness
If there's one step you should take for improving your health and helping you steer clear of chronic disease, it is exercise. And it really is never too late to start. Exercise helps control body weight, lower your blood pressure and strengthen your muscles, which helps you avoid injuries by making you less likely to fall. Milder activities such as walking, gardening or anything to keep moving would be sufficient.
Stay limber
Daily stretching is important. Your muscles tend to shorten and stiffen when you aren't active, but stretching activities such as yoga will improve your flexibility. Yoga improves flexibility and can help relieve the discomfort of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. Yoga teaches a set of techniques, such as breathing and meditation, in addition to incorporating poses that improve strength and balance.
Manage your weight
Sticking to a healthy weight by exercising and eating right has multiple benefits. If you can keep your weight down, you'll decrease your risk of diabetes as well as certain types of arthritis.One way to eat better is to eat more fruits and vegetables every day.
Preventive measures, such as getting a yearly flu shot and getting screened for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers, are also important for growing old gracefully. Keeping an eye on other disease indicators, such as high blood pressure and the early stages of diabetes, arthritis can also make a difference in terms of the degree of disability people experience later in life.
Stay spiritual or optimistic
Attending religious services and having a generally sunny outlook on life have been linked to longer, healthier lives. Decreased stress levels, from spiritual activities such as meditation, may be partly responsible for the health benefit. If you're more optimistic, you're more positive, you're going to do better, you're going to feel better.
Volunteer to help others
Research has shown that volunteering has physical and mental health benefits.
Ageing Gracefully
Ageing is not "Lost Youth" but a new stage of opportunity and strength.
