Healthy Aging Tips

You can't reverse the aging process. But you can optimize your health!

Many healthy aging tips will follow - after I explain my first tip.

Chances are you won't find this most important tip anywhere but here.

Here's my Number One tip on healthy aging:

No More Excuses!

Don't avoid, nor postpone, the necessary changes in your health behavior any longer!

I say this with great empathy in my heart. I mean no offense.

Let me explain. You're here for healthy aging tips - and there are so many wonderful ways to improve your health in your senior years, but…

No matter what changes you are looking for, if you don't implement them, they're worthless.

I see it every day. Sadly, many seniors whose time is running out – their health is deteriorating – just don't seem to get it.

Maybe they're oblivious to the subtle signs. Maybe they just avoid acknowledging them in hopes they'll go away somehow.

Did you know that of all the cases of coronary artery disease (plaque buildup in your arteries due to the Standard American Diet), 40 percent of them will only be discovered at the event of a heart attack or stroke? And of those many are fatal.

Most likely these people considered themselves healthy until that moment.

I think the saying "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" doesn't work too well at this stage in life, so…

Being a senior like you I have learned by now that sugarcoating the advice would be a disservice to you.

I do however believe that for most people, staying healthy is a matter of choice.

It's all up to you.

Okay, now to the healthy aging tips you've been waiting for so patiently.

  • If you smoke, quit. Today.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet. A whole food, plant-based diet is what I enjoy and recommend. I wouldn't have it any other way ever again.
  • Keep your body active. Regular exercise is an absolute must.
  • Keep your mind active. See Brain Health for more.
  • Get regular physical checkups.
  • Avoid accidents by using caution.
  • Prevent falls. Do balance exercises.


Take These Healthy Aging Tips Seriously Too

Colonoscopies save lives. Had none? Make an appointment today.

Have annual eye exams.

Monitor blood sugar levels.

Get eight hours of sleep every day.

Read food labels. Can't pronounce it? Don't buy it.

Avoid problem foods that cause you allergies or intolerance.

Avoid processed foods.

Avoid undue stress.

Find value in meditation and spirituality.

Above all – have fun!
