There is a resignation among many seniors to the inevitable physical decline of aging. It's true that you can't stop the aging process, but it's also true that you can slow down its effects with healthy lifestyle choices. That's why it's important that you take control of your health. Here are five tips for doing this.

Stop Smoking

The links between smoking and heart disease, lung disease, cancer and stroke are well established. An important step to living healthier and longer is eliminating the risk factors associated with these life threatening diseases. Smoking is one of the biggest of these factors.

Eat the Right Foods

Follow a heart healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, poultry, lean meat and fish. Include milk in your diet for the calcium your bones require. Limit your sodium intake and drink plenty of water. Your doctor can make dietary recommendations based on your health.

Elderly CouplesExercise

Walking is a very healthy activity in a number of ways. It's a medium intensity aerobic exercise and maintains fitness of the part of your body that keeps you mobile: your legs. Strong legs are important for avoiding falls. Balance and stretching exercises are also important for fall and injury prevention. Do calisthenics to maintain muscle mass. Fit muscles not only prevent injuries, they elevate your metabolism. Check with your doctor before starting a fitness program.

Don't Be a Stranger

There is a strong connection between emotional well-being and health. Those with healthy relationships are happier and live longer lives than those without. Stay socially active. Join social groups centered around your interests and spend time with family and friends. Your exercise routine is an opportunity to be social. Exercising with like-minded individuals makes the experience more enjoyable and easier to keep up.

Don't Neglect Your Health Insurance

Advancements in medical science over the last century have improved the health and longevity of our population. Many health conditions that shortened lives a century ago are prevented or cured by a few trips to the doctor in today’s world. However, it's difficult to benefit from medical science if concerns about medical costs hold you back. Check with your health insurance agent to make sure you are adequately covered.
