If you kicked the New Year off with a resolution to be healthier, then it’s off to a good start! We can help to support your healthy aging goals with the best research evidence. There’s no simple solution to healthy aging, but the good news is that there are many things you can do to help. Take your pick and start the New Year off right!
- Eat right: There’s good evidence that those who follow a Mediterranean-type diet are least likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease
- Stay active: Adults 65+ should aim for at least 150 minutes a week of moderate to vigorous exercise. Outdoor walking groups reduce depression risk and improve blood pressure, weight (body mass index), walking speed and more! There are many other easy ways to stay in shape.
- Help in your community: volunteering builds on the experience of older adults, reduces social isolation, and provides a sense of accomplishment and belonging to the community. There are also positive benefits to health and quality of life.
