Tips for Healthy Aging

Here are the top 10 tips from the National Institute on Aging.

  • Eat a balanced diet, including five helpings of vegetables and fruits a day.
  • Exercise regularly (check with a doctor before starting an exercise program).
  • Get regular health check-ups.
  • Don’t smoke (it’s never too late to quit).
  • Practice safety habits at home to prevent falls and fractures. Always wear your seatbelt in a car.
  • Stay in contact with family and friends. Stay active through work, play and community.
  • Avoid overexposure to the sun and the cold.
  • If you drink, moderation is the key. When you drink, let someone else drive.
  • Keep personal and financial records in order to simplify budgeting and investing. Plan long-term housing and money needs (reduces stress).
  • Keep a positive attitude toward life. Do things that make you happy.
