As people age, self-care becomes more important than ever. Small actions can have dramatic results that improve quality of life and overall enjoyment. You can take a few measures every day that make a significant difference in how you experience your senior years.
Design a Healthy Diet
Older people often find their appetites aren’t as hearty as they once were, but good nutrition is even more important as you age. Researchers recommend eating whole-grains, lean meats, plenty of fruits and vegetables either raw or cooked and healthy fats. Olive oil, canola oil and peanut oils are advised. Limit the amount of processed foods you consume, and only drink moderate amounts of caffeine and alcohol.
