Live An Active Life

Regular exercise is one of the greatest keys to physical and mental health.Living an active life will help you stay fit enough to maintain your independence to go where you want and preform your own activities

Eat Healthy Foods

Eat nutrient-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole-grains to prevent hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

Maintain Your Brain

One in eight older adults in the U.S. has Alzheimer's disease, and some cognitive decline is a normal part of ageing. Studies have shown that a lifestyle that includes cognitive stimulation through active learning slows cognitive decline.

Cultivate Your Relationships

Maintain communication with your friends and family, especially after a significant loss or life change. Common life changes in older adulthood, such as retirement, health issues, or loss of a spouse may cause isolation

Get Enough Sleep

Lack of sleep can cause depression, irritability, increased fall risk, or memory problems. Develop a regular sleep pattern. Keep your room dark and noise free, avoid watching TV or going on the computer in bed. Stay away from caffeine late in the day.
