Healthy Aging

It’s inevitable, aging is a part of life.  I’ve read many articles about healthy aging and I’ve summarized my findings into 4 simple points:

Sleep — Strive for 7 hours of sleep a night (or supplement with naps)

Exercise — Get up and walk a few times a day for a combined total of 30 minutes of activity

Socialization –Stay in touch with friends and relatives and talk with everyone you come across during the day, even if it is simply to say hello.

Proper Nutrition — Eat Real Food and plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoid added sugar as much as possible.

Easy!

 

 

Healthy Aging

I heard a talk last night on healthy aging.  The presenter discussed 3 keys to healthy aging and avoiding demensia:

Sleep

Exercise

Socialization

Sounds good!

I would add to that by saying, strive for 7 hours of sleep a night (or supplement with naps), get up and walk a few times a day for a combined total of 30 minutes of activity, stay in touch with friends and relatives and talk with everyone you come across during the day, even if it is simply to say hello.
