5 Tips for Healthy Aging

healthy aging tips

People are living longer than ever thanks to medical improvements. Even though we now have access to the best medical care and medical treatments for a range of diseases, it’s still important to focus on living healthy as you age.

1. Focus on a healthy, well-balanced diet.

Focus on eating a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fiber is most important. It’s also important to avoid foods high in cholesterol and saturated fats.

2. Visit your doctor regularly.

Routine checkups with your doctor can help catch problems early on. A physician will also be able to tell you what exams and check ups you’ll need to be getting, such as blood work to test cholesterol, mammograms and colonoscopies.

3. Be physically active.

Incorporating at least 30 minutes of activity into your day will help reduce your chance of stroke, heart attack and other diseases. Make sure you choose activities that don’t strain your joints too much, such as walking, yoga classes or light bike rides.

4. Avoid overdoing alcoholic drinks.

It’s especially important to focus on drinking in moderation as you age. For men and women over the age of 65, one drink is considered healthy.

5. Focus on proper skin care.

Because your skin becomes even more sensitive with age, it’s important to use at least SPF 15 any time you will be exposed to the outdoors.

Consult your physician for more information on health aging.
