September is is Aging Healthy Month and with that in mind, we encourage you to reevaluate your mental and physical health so that you can prepare your body and mind to combat the onset of multiple age related health concerns.
Below, are five tips to focus on to keep you feeling young and healthy as the years pass by:
1. Age is just a number
When people say “Act Your Age!” at your age tell them to shove it! We are only as old as we feel, so why not maintain a positive outlook and envision yourself as a 25 or 30 year old again.
2. Stop Complaining
When you catch yourself complaining, stop it! Harboring negative thoughts and holding on to grudges isn’t healthy and the stress can bring on a slew of health problems.
3. Walk the Walk
If possible, you should be walking everyday. And when you walk, walk with purpose. Maintain a steady pace and take big strides using your heel first.
4. Take Up a Mind-Bending Hobby
Take up a hobby or art that you’ve never done before. The challenge of mastering a new skill or musical instrument will ignite parts of your brain that you’ve never used before – keeping you sharp as tack for years to come.
5. Get a Tune Up
Your body is a fine-tuned machine and with time, things can get out of alignment. Schedule a your annual physical and health screenings with one of award winning physicians to make sure all your parts are up to spec.
