September is Healthy Aging Month

Healthy Aging Month was created to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing old-er. We live longer lives now thanks to improvements in medicine and health but its more important to develop healthy habits as we age.

While genetics play a role when it comes to aging, seniors can take steps to encourage better health.

Helping each other become aware

of our physical and mental health, diet, social skills, and even financial situations; all factors that contribute to successful aging. As we age, our health becomes more important.

Get Regular Check-Ups and Yearly Physicals- If you’re not feeling well don’t ignore symptoms. Know yourself and your body well enough to detect if something feels off so you don’t need to visit the doctor for every ailment. Get annual physicals including visits to the dentist and eye doctor. Many diseases can be prevented if caught early. Take medications and supplements in order to ensure you are feeling your best.

Stay Social- Make an effort to see your old friends and don’t be afraid of making new ones! A lifestle devoid of interaction with friends and family can lead to health issues and isolation can lead to depression. Reach out and invite friends and family over. Talking to someone daily will do your mind and mental health a world of good.

Get Moving- Consult your doctor if you are not accustomed to exercise. Start slowly to get used to each level of activity. Exercise can be as simple as going for a 10-15 minute walk, three to four times a week and increase as you go. If you are more active try tennis, swim-ming, dancing class, senior yoga, gardening, there are more ways to stay active, just make sure you keep your body moving.
