6 ways to change the way you age now
As a champion for the international council on active aging (ICAA) I believe passionately about the impact that movement and lifestyle can have on how well we age.
Check out these 6 tips for aging well from the ICAA:
- Start or vow to continue healthy lifestyle behaviours—regular physical activity, appropriate diet--that permit you to stay as active as possible.
- Ignore ageist stereotypes—the fact that you’ve reached a certain age does not mean you are doomed to decline mentally and/or physically.
- Socialize with others--people who engage with others are less likely to feel depressed and isolated and more likely to feel happy and optimistic about their lives.
- Expand your knowledge and skills—lifelong learning can help you find greater meaning in your life.
- Avoid quick fixes—if something sounds too good to be true, it is. “Companies that sell so-called ‘anti-aging’ products are simply graywashing,” says Milner. “That means they’re exploiting the fear of aging by positioning their products as ‘cures’ or ‘fixes.’ But aging is a natural process, not a disease, and an older person isn’t a ‘broken’ version of a younger one.”
