As our age increases, the health worsens. Our organs do not work perfectly and we need to take special care of our body. Here’s what you can do to provide that extra care to your heart and overall health:
Focus on preventions
It will be harmful for your body if you take many medicines, or start to cure your diseases when it’s too late. Instead, focus on preventing yourself from illnesses. Eat a healthy diet, exercise every day, measure your BP & sugar regularly, keep an eye on your weight, and get regular health and heart check-ups.
Socializing, spending time with children and grandchildren makes the elderly happy and stress-free. This in turn is good for their heart health. Spend time with your family every day, whether over a cup of tea or dinner, family parties, or taking a walk together in the evening.
A well rested body is a healthy body. Stay away from caffeine and have a proper sleeping schedule. Also, take short naps during the day but don’t compromise on your long sleep.
The 123-year-old Carmelo Flores Laura, potentially the oldest living person documented, says he owes his longevity to regular exercise. “I walk a lot, that’s all. I go out with the animals,” Flores told the Associated Press. So walk walk walk! Even if you don’t feel like doing heavy exercises, take walks!
Stay healthy, live longer!
