Aging is inevitable, but how you age is entirely up to you.
We live in a society that is obsessed with turning back the clock, but unfortunately, there is no real way to turn back the clock. Although age is inevitable, you can decide if you age in a healthy way or not. At LiveWell Assisted Living, we are dedicated to helping each and every one of our residents stay healthy and happy for as long as possible. That is why our experts have come up with this list of tips for healthy aging:
#1. Get up and start moving.
It is never too late to start exercising and living a healthier life. Regular exercise makes your body strong and reduces your risk for falling and injury. Not only does activity improve your physical health, but it can actually decrease your risk for dementia as well. You don’t have to start lifting weights or doing any other vigorous workouts to get results either, you can start with going on walks or gardening to get moving a bit more each day.
#2. Start eating a healthier diet.
Eating healthy is important for both your physical and mental health. It will help to keep the weight off, plus it will enhance your cognitive and emotional health. Avoid processed foods and junk foods, and start including lean proteins, healthy fats, whole grains and plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet.
