Aging Gracefully for Life

Tips That Will Help You Age Gracefully

By John Walsh

Aging occurs gradually over time. So too do some of the negative consequences that go hand in hand with the process. This, however, is a good thing. It allows time for us to make adjustments in our life that will better equip us for dealing with those changes. Take the time now and consider the following suggestions that will make your life easier.

Simplify the things in your life. Start with your bedroom closet, and go from there. Eliminate the many things that you do not use. You will quickly see that many of the things around your house are just clutter and serve absolutely no purpose in your life. De-cluttering will lessen the stress in your life.

Keeping your cholesterol under control is important for aging well. A build up of cholesterol can raise your risk of stroke or heart attack. Eating a diet low in animal fats and high in fiber can help keep your cholesterol level under control by increasing your HDL (good) cholesterol and reducing your LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Do protect your skin against wrinkles and cancer by wearing proper sunblock but don’t over do it to the extent that you deprive yourself of much needed vitamin D! As much harm as too much sun can do, too little of it can also hurt you so find a suitable SPF that will prevent damage without completely prohibiting your intake of highly beneficial sunlight!

Eating as well as you can is a powerful anti-aging technique. You need to center your diet around fruits, vegetables and whole grains to promote good health. Make sure you get lots of vitamins, minerals and other micro-nutrients to help you keep young.

One of the best ways to increase happiness and decrease stress is to enjoy the company of good friends! Especially as we age, good friendships can go a long way in improving moods and mental health and have even been shown to increase longevity! Get out often or invite friends over frequently to brighten not only your day but your prospects for health as well!

If you are worried about aging then try to do things that will make you feel young again. Go to the mini golf course, or play a few games at the arcade. By doing those things which make you feel young you can actually help slow down the process of aging.

Many elderly people suffer from the pain of arthritis. But few understand the emotional pain it can cause. The pain of arthritis can cause depression, sleep problems and even, drug abuse. Talk to your doctor or a mental health professional, for advice on how to deal with the emotional pain of arthritis.

By accepting the fact that we are aging and that certain changes will accompany the aging process, we can better prepare for those changes. The tips outlined above should help us on our way to doing just that. Whether we need to establish certain habits or make changes in our living situation, the time to do it is now.
