It is never too late to improve your health. If you are sneaking up towards 60, it is important to make healthy lifestyle changes to improve your longevity and short term health. Follow these nine ways to push your health in the right direction:
Know your numbers. Be on top of your cholesteral and blood pressure levels. This are both important for your overall health. Ask your doctor to conduct your body mass index and blood sugar levels as well. Having healthy levels of your body functions will improve your overall health.
Quit smoking. Quitting smoking may be the most important thing you can do for yourself, if you are a smoker. When you quit smoking, you are lowering the risk of getting cancer and improving your health.
Get moving. Exercising is a signifigant part of a healthy life. Find what you like to do and start doing it more. Try walking, jogging, spin, dancing, biking. The options are endless.
Watch your diet. Eat more vegetables, less meat and junk food. It’s that simple.
Drink water. Water is the key to a healthy life. Dehydration is more popular among older adults, so make sure you are drinking enough water.
Wear sunscreen. As we age, our skin is less able to protect itself from UV rays. And tanning beds are no safer than the sun.
Cut back on alcohol. Drink in moderation if you are one that tends to overdo it on the alcohol.
Stay socially connected. Being social lowers stress levels and keeps your brain young. And spending time with people with healthy habits tends to rub off. Find out more about staying social as you age.
It all boils down to being proactive. Seek out help for your financial, legal and health care questions.
