Tips of Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging Inside and Out- The key to looking great on the outside is to focus on the inside. Here are 3 things to remember, work on the inside and the outside will follow.

Tip 1- Go Find The Sneakers! Exercise is not just about the muscle toning. Taking a few extra steps each day can really help by stimulating endorphins in your brain, leaving you with a feelong of wellbeing. Exercise can also help lower blood pressure. Try parking a little further away when you go to the mall, or take the stairs instead of the elevator. It is the little things that can add up to good health.

Tip-2- Pamper Yourself! Don't forget to take time for stress relief! Put yourself on the priority list, and spoil yourself once in awhile. How about a bubble bath, or a facial (Medical Facial at Aesthetic Associates Centre!) may be just the thing you need to break that hectic regimen and relax. And don't forget the sleep! Sleep is just as important as activity. It allows our bodies to heal and repair.

Tip 3- Drink for Life! Keeping hydrated can prevent fatigue. Poor nutrition is like trying to run your car without proper oil and gasoline. To 'run on all cylinders', be sure to keep well hydrated and eat healthy foods. Lots of fruits and vegetables, food with color, have plenty of nutrients to help you body run smoothly.
