It is never too late to reinvent yourself, whether it be your career, health or passion. Since September is Healthy Aging Month, it’s the perfect time to get started on a new you.
Healthy Aging Month was designed to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. As we age, we’re encouraged to act how you feel instead of acting your age and by being positive in daily conversations.
There is no better time than now to improve your physical, mental, social and financial well-being. This is the month to really go for it! Here are some tips to make the most of Healthy Aging Month:
1. Get moving
Exercise on a daily basis. It doesn’t just maintain a healthy body but a healthy brain, too.
2. Stay social
Don’t be afraid to make new friends, and make an effort to see your old friends, too. Learn something new by taking a class or playing games. Give back by volunteering.
3. Stay balanced
Practice yoga to improve your flexibility and balance. It is also great for the mind and will help reduce stress that comes with aging problems.
4. Sleep well
It’s very important to rest. Try putting yourself on a schedule to ensure you are getting the right amount of sleep you need.
It’s important to keep track of what you’re doing and how you are doing it. This helps gives you a purpose and feel less anxious day to day. Make a list. Follow a routine. Slow down. Get organized.
