SEPTEMBER IS HEALTHY AGING MONTH
September is a time of year many people think of as a new beginning. It’s the start of a new school year, the time when things tend to settle down after the hustle and bustle of the summer months. Now is the time to rejuvenate and start taking some positive measures with your health. Here are some ideas to help get you started:
1: Don’t Act Your Age! Think about your best year so far, picture yourself at that age, and be it! Positive thinking goes a long way toward positive feeling.
2: Be Positive! Try to see the positive in your conversations and actions every day. Limit complaining, and stop watching all the negative news stories.
3: Drop Your Negative Friends. Surround yourself with people who have a positive outlook. Energetic, happy, positive people will help you be happy, too! Smile! People who smile more often are happier.
4: Walk the Walk. Do you walk slowly because you’ve become lazy? Make an effort to take big strides, walk heel first, and wear comfortable shoes.
5: Stand Up Straight! Look at yourself in the mirror. Hold your stomach in, shoulders back, chin up. Fix your stance and practice every day. You’ll look great and feel better!
6: Check Those Pearly Whites. Teeth are often the first thing people notice. Good oral health is just as important as good physical health. Go to the dentist regularly.
7: Find Your Artist. Take music classes, learn to paint, try woodworking! Creativity keeps our brains young!
8: Check Your Hormones! Aging doesn’t have to mean feeling less than you did when you were younger.
