Healthy Aging: Nature Or Nurture? By VieFit Sutra


Staying healthy and feeling your best is important at any age and that doesn’t change just because you have a few more grey hairs. With age, we experience an increasing number of changes in life, from busy life to plenty of time, career changes and retirement, children leaving home, the loss of relatives and loved ones, and physical changes. How we handle and grow from these changes is the key to staying healthy. These tips can help you maintain your physical and emotional health and live life to the fullest, whatever your age.

Looking at your relatives' medical histories is like peering into a crystal ball. You get a glimpse at your future but not the whole picture. You can't change the genes you inherited, but you can avoid habits that contributed to your family's health problems.

"Some people can have a family history of heart disease, but it's actually a history of smoking, overeating, and [an inactive] lifestyle. And if you adopt that lifestyle, you're going to run into the same problems your parents did,"- says James Pacala, MD.

Your necessities to stay healthy would be: exercise, a healthy and balanced diet that's low in saturated fat and high in fruits and vegetables, and brain games and social outings to keep you sharp. You also want to try to avoid diseases. "Get your immunizations, your cancer screening tests, your cardiac and osteoporosis risk factors assessed before you have those problems.
