Life can be enjoyed and explored. If you set goals for yourself, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment after you reach those goals and have a higher quality of life overall.
Every night you need to strive to get as much sleep as you need. Most people need between seven and nine hours of sleep a night. Sleep deprivation is linked with many different health conditions, including cardiovascular disease and depression.
Exercise will help you stay young. Studies show that those who exercise regularly age more slowly than those who don’t. Exercise has a variety of benefits, including increased endurance and muscle tone, better circulation, and fewer skin problems.
As you age, it is important that your doctor check that your hormones are in proper balance. Insomnia, depression and weight gain are all symptoms of a hormonal imbalance during the aging process. These issues can create further health problems and increase the negative effects of aging. Talk to a doctor to see how to keep your hormones balanced in your golden years. Be aware of the potential for fraud. Fraudsters often target older people to make easy cash. Do not give others your bank information, shred any personal papers and require identification of anyone who enters your home. Fraud is everywhere; the best way to protect yourself is to be cautious.
