Making a New Year’s resolution to eat better, exercise, watch your weight, and see your healthcare provider regularly, can help you get healthier and feel better for many more years to come. Here are our top New Year’s resolutions for seniors.
When it comes to eating, make sure you have plenty of veggies on your plate. Choose foods with deep colors like spinach, oranges, and carrots. Start a fiber-rich diet and switch fatty meats with heart-healthy fish like tuna or salmon.
Physical activity can always be helpful despite any constraining situations like heart disease, diabetes, or arthritis. In fact, physical activity is known to improve all of these conditions. Exercises like water aerobics, walking and stretching can help improve your bones and balance.
See your provider regularly
Schedule an annual appointment with your doctor to discuss health screenings that can check your vision, hearing, and other conditions such as cancers or osteoporosis. After each visit talk about medications you’re taking and whether you still need to take them.
