Ways to Prevent Senior Problems

I spent last weekend at the farm with Grandma. It was my Grandpa's death anniversary and well I always grab every opportunity to visit the farm and my Grandma. She will be 90 this year and with God's grace she is still very active and of good health.

I'm trying to look at her life and see how I can mirror her lifestyle to I get to reach her age without any senior problems and I sum it up to 5 tips --

1. Adopt a healthy lifestyle at any age. Eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, limit alcohol intake, and quit smoking.

2. Engage in mentally stimulating activities. Read, play cards, do puzzles and memory games. Take up a hobby if you will!

3. Be socially active. Do volunteer work, join a club, travel in group.

4. Visit your doctor regularly. Be in tip-top shape and get prompt treatments for any conditions as the crop up.

5. Adopt a positive outlook in life. Avoid stress and learn to relax.

I'd say the last one matter a lot and seems to be the hardest to do!
