As you age, it’s important to stay healthy, fit and active to keep your body functioning as it should. And, the earlier you start maintaining a healthy lifestyle, the longer you will be able to enjoy the benefits.

Use these tips to keep your body and mind healthy as you age:
  • Stay up to date on your medical screenings, including visits to your primary care physician, optometrist and dentist.
  • Limit your alcohol consumption.
  • Exercise regularly. This may prevent or provide relief from serious health conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, depression and diabetes.
  • Give your brain regular workouts by completing puzzles or crosswords, or by learning a new language or instrument.
  • Make sure to get enough sleep each night. Most doctors recommend seven to nine hours for a normal adult.
