3 Ways To Keep Healthy In Your Twilight Years

by - February 08, 2021


There are two things that are absolute in this world. Death and taxes. Whilst we may not be able to put off the latter, the former can be deterred some by taking steps to keep ourselves healthy and safe when we’re getting on in years. After all, we all have to face the reality that one day our bodies won’t be able to do as much as we could before. So, the question is, how do we make sure we keep ourselves well when the time comes?




Keep That Movement Up – Or Find Ways to Help If You Cannot

There’s a big reason why a lot of people end up needing to speak to a company that handles installing Maryland stairlifts into their homes as they grow older. Movement becomes difficult as we grow more still, as we go out less and stay inside. Whilst for many this can be caused by disabilities and the like which mean they need this assistance, for many it is possible to slow the spread of such ailments with daily exercise. Something as simple as daily stretches, yoga, Tai Chi, or other gentle workouts can do wonders for your flexibility in your older age.

Rest Is Vital for Long Life

Perhaps there are three things that are absolute, rather than just two. We all need to sleep as well, after all. But two is more succinct, right? In any case, getting enough rest is always an important thing to do, especially as you get older. The body uses more energy to get around, and if you do not get enough sleep to compensate for this you may find yourself growing more stressed, and potentially ill. Neither of these things are good for longevity, and so it is important to get at least seven and a half hours of sleep.

Having said that, don’t oversleep either. Anything after nine hours can potentially be detrimental, so striking a balance is a vital thing to achieve. If you struggle either way, speak to a doctor about potential medication options.

Sticking to a Healthy and Nutritious Diet

We all have the food and drink that we love to indulge in. Whether it be a cheeky bottle of wine, some delicious fried chicken, or anything else, sometimes there is a great comfort in allowing yourself these things. When we grow old, however, we have to understand the potential pitfalls in our diet could affect us a lot more than when we’re younger. Eating well as a senior is a key part of keeping whole and hale, and sticking around for a long, long time. Indeed, many people who have broken the 100-year barrier cite their diet as a major reason why. Then again, there are some notable examples who insist on a daily whiskey, so perhaps there’s room for both.

 

Still, you should consider improving your diet if you haven’t already by the time you reach these older years. Getting lean proteins, plenty of fruit and veg, whole grains and low-fat dairy can make a big impact on your health and quality of life in those later years. Plus, these days it is easy to get a lot of options for all of these that taste great, which is a big bonus.

So, these are three ways to help keep yourself healthy during those twilight years. There are more tips that could help, too, but these are a good basic starting ground to grow from. Do you have any habits you could add to this? Feel free to comment below about it. We must all look after each other, after all.
