Healthy Aging Month
September is Healthy Aging Month. Let this be a time to focus attention on the protection of health and well-being during the process of aging.
Take these steps to stay healthy and independent as you age:
Keep your body and mind active.
Choose healthy foods.
As we age our bodies need fewer calories but just as many nutrients, making it increasingly important to consume nutrient-dense, whole foods. These foods pack a lot of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs into a small number of calories.
It’s never too late to make healthy changes in your life!
Get enough sleep.
Talk to your doctor about health concerns.
Take fall precautions.
