Check Out These Tips From Senior Magazines On Staying Healthy Over 60
Turning 60 soon? Congratulations! As you get older, it's more important than ever to put your health first. Things that may have easily resolved in the past may require the attention of a doctor now, and it's important that you don't let your health slide. At Celebration, our free print senior magazine, we've compiled some tips from experts in senior aging to help you stay healthier than ever.
One of the most important things that you can do for your health as you get older is ensure that you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals, as well as maintaining a healthy weight. Your doctor can help you to determine what a healthy weight is for your age, height, and body type. If you need to lose weight, making small changes one at a time can be less overwhelming than trying to make many changes all at once. Switching to milk instead of cream in your coffee, or one scoop of ice cream after dinner instead of two can go a long way in helping you to achieve your weight loss goals.
Getting exercise is not only an important part of maintaining a healthy weight - it's also great for your heart, mind, and digestion. Just twenty to thirty minutes of exercise a day is a great way to get your blood flowing and reap the benefits of a regular exercise routine. You're more likely to stick to your exercise plan if you do something you enjoy. Whether that means playing tennis, going bowling, or just getting out for a nice afternoon walk, choose something that you'll look forward to. If you have a friend or neighbor who is also trying to exercise, working out together can help you both stay accountable to staying on track.
As you get older, it's more important than ever to keep up with regular doctor's visits, and to follow through with any testing that your doctor recommends. Failing to do so can mean that important health conditions go undetected, resulting in you not being aware of health conditions until they cause damage to your body. If you haven't seen your doctor in the past year, reach out to them today to talk about scheduling a checkup.
