In the last blog, we talked about staying physically healthy as you age. There are also our minds to think about—and healthy psychological aging is just as important as staying physically fit.
Our mental attitude has a far-reaching impact on our health. As we think, so follows our attitude. In other words, if we dwell on negatives, real or imagined, more negatives will be our focus. However, if we dwell on positives, we are more likely to see the good around us.
Aging is a fact of life. So let’s talk about how to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible, making the most of our years. “Age is just a number.” On our Tanita scale it gives us a health age. It is very encouraging when that’s younger than our chronological age. However, it doesn’t take our blood pressure or cholesterol or stress level or sleep habits or lifestyle into account. It does, in fact, consider your weight, your percent of body fat, and your waist circumference. Now is a wonderful time to consider how your lifestyle can help improve your chronological age and improve your future.
