Continuing on with this important theme, we recently came across a wonderful article written by Tara Parker-Pope. Tara is the founding editor of Well, an award-winning consumer health site with news and features to help readers live well every day. The article, titled ‘How to Age Well’ is published on the New York Times Website and covers five key areas:
Connect. Staying in touch with family and friends — and forming new relationships — can keep you healthier longer and may add years to your life. The importance and power of friendships is what inspired Five Good Friends name.
Eat. Small changes in your eating habits can lower your risk for many of the diseases associated with ageing.
Move. A body in motion will age better than one on the couch. Consider these tips for exercise as you age.
Think. Ageing well means taking care of both the body and the mind. Most of what we do to keep our bodies fit is also good for the brain.
Live Well. Nothing can guarantee you a longer life, but there are a few simple practices that will improve your odds of ageing well.
