Always keep in mind that the ideal way to age is by taking measures to improve one’s health and access to healthcare. Both of which are essential for ensuring peak cognitive and physical performance as one ages.
Take a look at these “healthy living” recommendations to improve your physical health and aging:
As long as you don’t push yourself too hard or damage yourself, it is good to be energetic. Exercise is great for maintaining strength and mobility as you age.
People may require less sleep as they age since sleep becomes lighter and more scattered with age. However, having trouble sleeping on a regular basis or waking up feeling exhausted is not a natural part of aging.
The primary reason is that being overweight significantly increases one’s chances of becoming disabled in old age. It may come as a surprise, but the “obesity paradox in aging” states that the correlation between being overweight and dying at a younger age weakens with age.
Chronic stress has been connected to metabolic disorders like insulin resistance and immune system dysfunction like cardiovascular disease.
Some studies have linked stress to a hastening of “cellular aging” and the upregulation of inflammatory markers.
