Starting a new healthier eating regimen or adding in a few minutes of exercise throughout the week will have positive results even into your late 80’s. I’ve seen it personally and professionally.
Fresh Foods is Key
A new eating regimen doesn’t have to be complicated. Just add more fresh foods to your diet. It’s that simple. It can also be a source of lifelong learning. Try new recipes, research how to cook foods that have not been part of your eating history. Simply doing this not only enhances your nutritional status but, also provides much needed mental stimulation.
Incorporating a brisk 20 minute walk into your daily routine helps maintain and improve your balance as well as helps in strengthening your bones. The release of the endorphins, those feel good hormones, that occurs from doing this little bit of exercise, will also help you maintain a brighter attitude.
So many benefits for so little effort.
