Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been – David Bowie

Back in 1992, Healthy Aging® Month was first observed as a way to draw attention to the importance of healthy lifestyles for adults, 45-plus. Since no one wants to be considered old, what should those of us over 45 consider, in order to age in a healthy way and celebrate September as Healthy Aging® Month? According to Healthy Aging®, key areas are as follows:¹

Diet

Make healthy eating a habit! Diets such as the DASH diet or the Mediterranean diet are great healthy possibilities. Your doctor is a great source of advice.

Exercise

Find an exercise plan and stick to it. Walking, for example, is a great, low-impact way to get moving. Some follow the 10,000 step a day plan. Whatever your choice, just get moving!

Mental Wellness

Build your support system. Find individuals and peer groups that have your best interests in mind. Look for volunteer opportunities; get involved. Stay positive.

It may be cliché but, age is only a number.

By practicing good, healthy habits, each of us can find joy in those numbers going up!

Happy Healthy Aging Month!
