I encountered a few people in a nursing home range from the age of 75 - 105 years old. Some of them are disabled but they are mentally healthy and some of them are literally fit to do anything. I often asked myself what are their secrets?
When I spoke to one of them , a South African Lady, who used to swim at the age of 90 years old, love to read magazines, novels, newspapers and smartly dress, she said that you just enjoy life if you can. Don't be miserable because it doesn't help you at all. Just be careful of what you eat, then take exercise more often. She admitted, the she often forget things and her carer help her to remember but reading and crosswords puzzle is very helpful for the exercise of her mind.
So, what can you do to remain healthy into an old age?
Here are some few ways of ensuring a healthy old age.
* Stop Smoking
* Moderate alcohol consumption
* Take exercise
* Healthy diet
* Socialize with others
* Get out in the fresh air
* Make sure that your home is safe
* Positive thinking
