We will all face different hurdles as we age, from sudden stressful occasions to plain old genetics. But, there’s one element we can control, our attitude…and a good one goes a long way. Here are a few tips on staying younger and healthier well into your 60s, 70s and 80s.
The Energetic 80s
Don’t forget that a little exercise can make all the difference whether you’re a sprightly 60-year-old or an athletic 80-and-young. Especially in later years, the virtues of regular physical activity cannot be argued more strongly. Whether a brisk walk, a few laps in the pool or a short chase with your grand or great-grandkids, movement is key to a happier heart, healthier bones and more joyful joints. Just be aware of your limitations to help prevent unnecessary falls and exhaustion.
Above all, remember to enjoy every single moment. No fight need be unbeatable, no obstacle too great to overcome, and certainly, no memory worth missing. So keep positive, keep active and show your “90s” who’s boss.
