TO OUR ELDERLY FRIENDS: Be on your way to healthier life in 2019

Happy 2019!

Starting a new year with new goals can be exciting. Make “feeling your best “your number one goal in 2019.  Being healthy and happy is important at any age and that doesn’t change just because you have more candles on your birthday cake.

Remember, Healthy aging means continually reinventing yourself as you pass through landmark ages such as 60, 70, 80 and beyond.  And that means finding new things you enjoy, learning to adapt to change, staying physically and socially active, and feeling connected to your community and loved ones.

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS:

1- STAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR COMMUNITY AND YOUR LOVED ONES, GIVE YOUR BRAIN A GOOD WORKOUT

2- STAY ACTIVE!

3- EAT FRUITS, VEGETABLES, WHOLE GRAINS, FISH, LOW-FAT DAIRY AND HEALTHY FATS

4- TOAST WITH A SMALLER GLASS!

 

5- BE SMOKE FREE!

6- SPEAK UP WHEN YOU FEEL DOWN OR ANXIOUS!
