September is Healthy Aging Month, and began the perfect time to get started on better health practices. For those of us 45 and older, improving our physical, mental and social well-being has never been more important – or more attainable.
Think about tackling a lifestyle change this fall by remembering the positive aspects of aging. Follow these 3 tips to reinvent yourself for healthy aging:
1. Get Active
Start walking, both for your health and to see the neighbors. You’ll be amazed how much weight you can shed, and you’ll benefit from the social interaction, too.
Sometimes, we might need extra help to achieve a slimmer figure. Weight loss and aging can cause abdominal sagging. An abdominal lift creates a more flattering shape when healthy eating and exercise aren’t enough.
2. See Your Doctors
Use this time to schedule appointments with your doctors. Have a complete physical so you can put worries about aging and aliments to the back of your mind. Don’t forget to get a hearing screening, too.
For year-round allergy sufferers, talk with your ENT specialist to improve your quality of life. Your physician can strengthen your immunity with general and specialized allergy treatment methods, like medications or injections.
3. Spoil Yourself!
Picture the best possible version of yourself – and act like it! Positive thinking can go a long way towards feeling good. Surround yourself with friends and loved ones who share the same mentality.
Sometimes, the old saying that “age is just a number” doesn’t resonate when we look in the mirror. Don’t like what you see? Splurge on a Mini Facelift, varicose vein treatment, or laser skin therapy to help repair signs of aging.
