healthy aging 200Whether you’re stepping out in your 20s or nesting in your 30s or flying through your 40s or finishing up your 50s or ready for retirement in your 60s, one thing is true – we’re all getting older every day. So why not do that aging in a healthy way? Here are some lifestyle tips that work for any age.

Plan a Date with Your Doctor

Schedule a wellness visit once a year to track your health and see about screenings you might need.

Sleep Like A Baby

A daily nap can be a refreshing break for anyone. Limit your nap to no more than 20 minutes so it doesn’t interfere with your normal sleep schedule.



Eat Naturally for Energy

Skip the store-bought energy bars and eat iron-rich foods like spinach, dried fruit and meats to get more oxygen to your cells.

Stay Social

From volunteering to taking a class or playing sports, there are many ways to stay connected with other people. See your old friends and make new ones.

Make Fiber Your Friend

Eat beans and other high-fiber foods for digestive and heart health.

Find Your Balance

Yoga or Tai Chi can improve agility and prevent falls.

Walk It Off

A brisk daily walk is good for both your heart and lungs.

Get All Your ZZZs

Talk to a specialist if you don’t sleep soundly through the night.

Don’t Live with The Blues

Depression can be treated. If you’ve been down for a while, see a doctor.

Remember to Remind Yourself

Aid your memory by making lists and following routines.

Set Realistic Goals

Make a plan to clearly define where you are going in life and how you will get there.
