New You Anti-Aging Tip: Prevention is the best plan of attack against disease and premature aging.
Move your body: Try low impact exercises like slow runs or walks, and light strengthening exercises to prevent bone density loss, obesity and osteoporosis. Maintaining a full range of motion is possible at any age.
Eat Right: Stay clear of processed, high-caloric foods and sugary drinks, eat healthier choices like dark leafy greens, brown rice, lean meats, nuts, blueberries, and olive oil to minimize the unnecessary weight gain.
Sleep Well: For older adults, a good night’s sleep is especially important because it helps improve concentration and memory formation. Adequate sleep also strengthens the immune system, and helps the body fight against disease.
