Way of Living

Happy and Healthy Ageing

Old age is a great time to sit back and enjoy your life.

You are much wiser, people’s opinions do not easily fluster you, you are much more comfortable in your own skin, your kids have left home, and you have the freedom to do all the things you want to do.

Enjoying your life is a significant contributor to healthy aging.

Have a sense of purpose and stay connected

People who stayed in touch with family and friends stayed healthy in their old age.

Take care of your appearance

Just because you are advancing in years should not mean that you can’t do it in style.

When you look good, you feel even better.

Stay up to date

Listen to Lady Gaga’s new album at least once or search your favorite songs on YouTube from Ella Fitzgerald to Stevie Wonder to Dolly Parton.

Music improves your mood, posture, and memory.

Join a support group in times of change

When a change occurs as it usually will, you will need a reliable support system.

It could be a recent loss or a severe diagnosis. Working through your emotions by talking about them and listening to people who have been through similar experiences is soothing to the soul and will help you heal.

Recommended New Years Resolutions

Give your brain a workout

The more you use your mind, the better it will work.

Read, do crossword puzzles or try Sudoku.

Socializing also gives your brain a boost.

Get enough sleep

Older adults need less sleep than younger people, right? Wrong!

Older people need just as much — at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night.
