Simple tips for aging well

HEALTHY aging is about much more than staying physically healthy-it's also about staying emotionally healthy and maintaining your sense of purpose and zest for life.

While the specific ingredients of aging well are different for everyone, the basic recipe involves finding new things you enjoy, learning to adapt to change, staying physically and socially active, and feeling connected to your community and loved ones.

Sure, you have to put a little more time and effort into maintaining your health as you get older, but the rewards can be even greater than when you were younger. Along with the wisdom and experience that come with age, adopting a healthy lifestyle now can leave you not just feeling healthier and more vigorous but also happier and more fulfilled.

The brain is capable of producing new brain cells at any age, so significant memory loss is not an inevitable result of aging. But just as it is with muscle strength, you have to use it or lose it.
