As we age, the idea of happiness may seem like an elusive concept, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, studies have shown that people over 65 years old are among the happiest demographic groups. So, what can you do to ensure that you continue to be happy well into your golden years? Here are some tips:
Most people talk about retirement as a shiny, sunny chapter of your life in which you no longer have to clock into work, answer to a boss, or spend 40 hours a week working for The Man. For many retirees, however, retirement turns out to be less pleasant than they expected.
Spending more time indoors? It doesn’t have to be boring. Engaging in interesting pastimes is important for everyone but finding indoor activities for older adults that enrich and enliven well-being is especially important. Keeping your mind occupied and your spirits high will repay you in lots of ways.
Activity is an integral part of our lives. Every day we participate in different kinds of activities including self-care, leisure activities, and household chores, etc. Proper arrangement of activities becomes more important when elders have more leisure time after retirement.
As you age, you may find that you have a harder time shedding those unwanted pounds than you did when you were younger. Seniors do face some added challenges when it comes to losing weight, but it’s definitely not impossible — just make sure you keep these five tips in mind:
The internet has made it convenient and easier to access services and socialize with people. However, it is also populated with scammers out to swindle unsuspecting users of their money. There are also a lot of cyberbullies and stalkers that can make your online experience uncomfortable. Some could even infringe on your actual life should they get your residential details.
While we may dream about the day when we can hang up our 9-to-5 workdays, those days consist of quite a bit of free time (roughly seven hours of leisure time after sleep and daily chores). However, embracing hobbies are a great way to boost physical and mental health.
People age 65 and older are much more likely than younger people to suffer a heart attack, to have a stroke, or to develop coronary heart disease (commonly called heart disease) and heart failure. Heart disease is also a major cause of disability, limiting the activity and eroding the quality of life of millions of older people.
Regular exercise and an active lifestyle for seniors provides a variety of health benefits that extend beyond the obvious, including improvements in blood pressure, diabetes, lipid profile, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and neurocognitive function.
Every January, countless people resolve to get healthier in the new year. Often, these resolutions come with intense exercise goals or diet restrictions – and unrealistic goals that inherently make such resolutions short-lived. If you’re looking to make 2022 a healthier year, we recommend adopting a strategy that will help you maintain your health (and motivation!) for months to come.
