Healthy Senior Living

 

It's a challenge when many senior citizens must decide between food or heat.

Healthy living encompasses a lot of things. First of all don’t do any drastic changes to your diet or living routine without discussing those changes with your doctor or primary healthcare provider.

Dramatic changes in senior’s routines can cause more problems than positives. Most people know that a healthy lifestyle will include a well balanced diet, especially with diabetes, moderate exercise, and plenty of sleep.

Healthy living is not only physical health but mental health as well.

Dealing With Stress

Healthy Eating, Nutrition = Long Life

The right foods in the right quantities can improve health and lengthen your life span.

Unfortunately, many seniors think in terms of cost only.

Processed foods, might be cheaper but they are often loaded with sodium, sugar, and other ingredients that weaken rather than strengthen the body.

Links to Safe, Healthy, Exercise for Seniors

Regular exercise will help you maintain a healthier body, a healthy weight, increase your self-confidence and sense of wellbeing.

 

You should never undertake an exercise program without getting your doctors approval.

Most health experts agree that 30 to 90 minutes of exercise each day will keep you healthy and add years to your life.

But is that amount of time realistic for you?

Start slow and increase your activity as your body strengthens. You should be able to comfortably talk to someone while you are exercising.

If you are too breathless to do that — slow down.

Below are some links to sites with varying degrees of exercise.

Safe Weight Control for Seniors

Diets Rarely Work Without Permanent Lifestyle Changes

 

Weight Loss of SeniorsAlways consult your family doctor or medical practitioner before undertaking any weight control program. Our bodies change as we age.

A weight-reduction program that works for a 30 year old could have totally different effects on someone over 60.

You will burn fewer calories at 60 doing exactly the same activites you did at 20,30 or 40 years of age.

Not every senior is overweight. Some are severally underweight as well.

Not having enough body mass can be just as dangerous as too little.
