Americans are generally living longer, but more of them are developing chronic diseases. About 133 million adults, which is half the current popular, have a chronic disease according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But it's never too late to start leading a healthy lifestyle. Here are five steps from Cosmo Insurance Agency to help you to start living healthier!

1. Exercise and Sleep well: Exercise and quality sleep go together. With the right exercise routine, good sleeping habits and nutrition, you can live a healthy lifestyle that positively impacts your entire life. Sleep is also an important remedy to certain health challenges like stress and over eating. Well rested people have more control of their appetite; the longer you stay awake, the more likely you are to get hungry anyway. A decent 7-hour sleep is recommended for healthy living.

2. Manage your weight: Sticking to a healthy weight by exercising and eating right has multiple benefits, studies show. If you can keep your weight down, you'll decrease your risk of diabetes, which affects about 23.3 million Americans, as well as certain types of arthritis, which hinders activity for about 19 million Americans, according to the CDC. 

3. Preventative Care: Preventive measures, such as getting a yearly flu shot and getting screened for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers, are also important for growing old gracefully. Keeping an eye on other disease indicators, such as high blood pressure and the early stages of diabetes, can also make a difference in terms of the degree of disability people experience later in life, Moore said.

4. Get Involved: Today, 28 percent of Americans live alone, with the possibility of loneliness and isolation. Maintaining contact with family and friends or with others dealing with friends is the best solution.
