As you age, it’s important to stay healthy, fit and active to keep your body functioning as it should. And, the earlier you start maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the longer you will be able to enjoy the benefits.
Use these tips to keep your body and mind healthy as you age:
Stay up to date on your medical screenings, including visits to your primary care physician, optometrist and dentist.
Limit your alcohol consumption.
Exercise regularly. This may prevent or provide relief from serious health conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, depression and diabetes.
Give your brain regular workouts by completing puzzles or crosswords, or by learning a new language or instrument.
Make sure to get enough sleep each night. Most doctors recommend seven to nine hours for a normal adult.
