Aging Gracefully

Aging gracefully is a term that gets thrown around often in today's society. What does it really mean to age with grace? For some, it means not caring about your appearance and living the rest of your life in solitude; for others, it means embracing change and learning to live with joy. The first thing I want you to know is that aging gracefully does NOT mean being lonely or giving up on beauty treatments because of societal pressure. It also doesn't mean getting old and just accepting things without any fight. The best way to age gracefully is to be proactive about your health. It's not enough to just make sure you don't do anything unhealthy; you also need to take care of your body with nutrition and exercise. The majority of people in this country get older without any major complications or disabilities. The only things that happen when they get older is that it takes longer for their bodies to heal from injuries and illnesses, so it's important not put off getting medical treatment if something feels wrong. But otherwise aging can be a very positive experience because people often become wiser and more contented as they age gracefully.


What you can do

You're never too old to age gracefully and here are some tips on how to do just that.

-Eat healthy: it's important for your body and mind, not just for your waistline. Try adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet, as well as keeping a food journal of what you eat every day! -Stay active: it doesn't have be strenuous exercise like running or lifting weights. You can try walking around the block or doing yoga instead. It'll help keep your muscles toned and will also boost serotonin levels in the brain which makes you feel happier! Plus, there's no risk of injury from these activities so they're perfect for seniors who may have trouble with other forms of workouts.
