5 healthy habits to age more gracefully. With your age, the requirements of your nutrition, physical activity also change. It’s not just to optimize your body requirements, but is necessary for your brain as well, so that it can work in it’s best possible way, too.

Maintaining healthy habits, and adopting a healthy lifestyle is necessary to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, and many other chronic major, or minor diseases. Your intake of food, beverages, and fresh clean water determines how healthy your body feels, and how efficiently your mind gets support to work properly.

1- Eat Healthy

In form of your daily meals, include more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and protein food. Include as per your weekly budget fish, meat, beans, lentils, nuts, eggs in your meals. Try to minimize using sugar, sodium, and saturated fat. Control your caffeine intake.

2- Plan your meals

As you age, manage your calorie count. Try not to put on too much weight, eat food which is facilitating, and nourishing for your body functions. Eat in small portions. Eat on time plus avoid oily food.

3- Move around more

As you age sitting for long hours must not be an option for you. It is bad for your postures, which weakens your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Also makes you have a slouching posture at times. Your spinal cord feels excessive pressure, and delicate blood vessels, veins could get blocked if you keep on sitting for longer periods of time. Therefore, give your body a push, move around more, walk, jog, exercise. Do workouts in any form you want, and lift weights.

4- Pay attention to your skin and body

As we age our skin appearance also changes. More fine lines, wrinkles and sagging of facial muscles become obvious. None of us can stop it fully, but the age clock can be reversed if you take care of your skin every day. Take the appropriate vitamins, and collagen to support your skin cells. Likewise, we all are born with a body and we cannot replace it.

We can change places and everything else but not our bodies. So if our body is not looked after well, which has to be with us from birth to death, we face multiple health issues related to our physical and mental health. So it’s important to always look after yourself more as you age.

5- Practice self-love

If you are a person who does not believe in self-love, then you are the one too, who does not care about yourself. Always keep yourself your top most priority. If you cannot look after yourself, how can you take care of those who are dependent on you. If you are feeling good, happy and healthy, you will send the same vibes out there and in a better way you will be able to take care of others. Your performance will increase; so will your self-confidence.

Take time out for yourself, read books, listen to music, walk your pet, and participate in activities which enhance the betterment of society. Stay creative, hungry for learning new things, in fact, stay relevant. Never think you are too old to do anything you love. Until you can, make the full use of life’s every moment.
