Celebrating Healthy Aging Month

September is national Healthy Aging month and it is designed to focus and celebrate the positive aspects of aging.  Yes, there is a positive side to aging and here are some tips to encourage you to celebrate your senior years.

Go back to school.  You’re never too old to develop a new career or enhance your skills.  Choose an area that you are passionate about and delve into it.  Check with your local community college and investigate online courses.

Take a volunteer vacation or join a mission trip.  Rather than a self-indulgence trip, take a journey that satisfies your soul.   Local churches offer mission trips throughout the year both internationally and within the US.  There are also countless volunteer opportunities where lodging is included; Adventures in Preservation in Colorado, Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehab in NC, and the American Bear Association in Minnesota are just a few.  Visit Volunteer Vacations Across America online and research the 200 plus opportunities available.  By this time next year, you may just be in Hawaii helping the Pacific Whale Foundation.

Dance the night away.  Older adults who partake in regular exercise are 60% less likely to get dementia.  Dancing is a great exercise that not only strengthens your body but your brain as well.

Learn to paint.  If the fine arts pique your interest, then try a painting class.

Try a new sport.  It’s never too late to start.  How about hiking, biking or even kayaking?

Eat fresh foods.  Skip the process foods and make a commitment to add more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet.  Foods made from scratch are much healthier and taste better, too.

September is a good time to reflect on where you’ve been and where you want to be.  Celebrate and enjoy your golden years. And, as Sophia Lauren says, “There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”  

We consider it an honor to assist you and your family and wish you all the best.
