HOW DO WE IMPROVE OUR LIFESTYLE?

Taking care of Yourself for the over 50’s

Here are some ways to take care of yourself every day: Get Enough Physical Activity - Physical activity is an excellent stress-buster and provides other health benefits as well.  It also can improve your mood and self image.  Try to accumulate 30 minutes of physical activity a day through walking, yoga, dancing, housework, gardening or recreational sports (tennis, volleyball, squash).  Senior people who regularly engage in physical activity tend to eat more nutritious food which also can help the body better manage stress. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle - Treat yourself properly with adequate sleep and nutritious food. Do Something You Enjoy - Take up an active activity you used to do but haven't had time for or start a new sport or hobby you've always wanted to try - maybe music or horse riding lessons. Share Your Feelings - Talk to someone you trust - a friend, member of the family or clergy, or mental health professional - about what's bothering you. Focus on the Present - Don't waste energy worrying about the past.  Keep your mind positively set on the present and future. Laugh - Try finding humour in a situation.  Humour is a powerful antidote to stress.  It can be a great way to relieve tension and could be as easy as renting a funny video and watching it at home.
