As you get a little older, it’s more important than ever to take care of your health.
Eating healthy, staying active and keeping up with routine screenings can help you
manage or avoid disease. And make a huge difference in how you feel each day.
We’re here to help too — with healthy aging tips and support to help you live some of your greatest years in good health.
It’s never too late to practice healthy habits
The more you use your body, the better it remembers how to work properly. Exercise can boost your energy, mental focus … even your social calendar. It can strengthen your muscles, heart, joints and bones too. So let’s get moving.
Eat healthy, nutritious foods:
You should eat a diet low in saturated fat to protect your heart and weight. But now more than ever, your body wants foods rich in fiber. Plus calcium and Vitamin D for bone health. Learn the basics of good nutrition.
Keep your mind fit:
Healthy habits and good genes can add years to your life. But did you know that an optimistic attitude about aging can help you live longer too? A Yale University study says so. Here’s help to stay positive.
