6 Healthy Habits for Seniors

Posted on June 27, 2022 by shieldsandboris

As we age it becomes even more important that we practice healthy habits and keep our bodies in good working order. Keeping your mind, body, and soul healthy can add years to your life.

  • Stay Social. Staying connected to friends and family as we age is critical to our health. Finding ways to spend time with those we love avoids feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety.
  • Eat Healthy. Maintaining a balanced diet will help keep your mind and body healthy. To maintain good health, avoid excessive fat and sugar in your diet.
  • See Your Doctor. Your healthcare provider should be current on your health condition. You should visit regularly to address changes in your health early on.
  • Exercise Daily. Movement does the body good, especially your heart. Do not become sedentary in your elder years. It is important that you keep moving for as long as you can. Regular exercise helps strengthen your muscles and improves your balance to prevent falls.
  • Stay Hydrated. It is recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. Staying hydrated helps to preserve and keep your organs healthy.
  • Take Your Medicine. Medicine should always be taken as prescribed and not missed. If remembering to take your medicine is proving difficult, ask someone to help you set up a “pill box” and arrange all your pills for the week so you do not miss doses.
