To successfully plan ahead, you need to start thinking about how you want to live as you age and what steps you need to take to achieve that lifestyle.
This article is part of a series on Plan for Aging in the Place you Love…
Being active, eating well, and exercising regularly can reduce the risk of health problems and increase your energy levels.
For example, moderate, regular walking is low-cost, simple and one of the most popular ways to be physically active. It may also help you manage some health conditions.
Speak with your health care professional before starting an exercise program if you have health concerns or have been inactive for a while.
Good nutrition also helps to improve mental and physical well-being. Talk to your health care professional or a registered dietitian about how you can make sure your nutrition needs are being met.
