Age-related changes in the body occur gradually. The physiology changes first of all. The rate of burning calories (metabolism) slows down, which is why in old age many people gain weight. This is especially true for sedentary people.
The aging process may be accompanied by a decrease in vision and hearing. In old age, many people use glasses and hearing aids.
Aging is also associated with deterioration of the urogenital system (reduced sexual desire, slowed down reactions, problems with urination).
With age, the health of most vital organs and systems deteriorates, which is aggravated by physical inactivity and an unhealthy diet. Therefore, in old age, it is very important to eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water and maintain physical activity.
Approaching old age: How to keep your well-being?
One of the most valuable contributions to maintaining one’s health is physical activity. Regular exercise improves health and strengthens your body. People who are physically active are less prone to depressive conditions. Physical activity refers to any movement: from working in the garden, around the house, walking, training in the gym or even dancing. The main thing is to be active regularly. If you’re suffering from any underlying disease, then it is necessary that you consult with your doctor about a suitable physical activity for your needs.
Mental and emotional health plays an important role in the extension of youth. Improving and maintaining emotional health helps strengthen your relationship with family, friends, and society. People who are interconnected with other people have more resources for a healthy life and healthy aging. At the same time, everyday stresses should be minimized. Psychological stress can be removed by taking 20 minutes of relaxation with the help of music, a warm bath, watching a pleasant show, sleeping, etc.
Constantly train your brain to keep your mind sharp and improve your memory.
Avoid smoking and overconsumption of alcohol.
Eat healthy foods rich in vitamins, and minerals.
Avoid fatty, salty, spicy, and fried foods.
Following all the above recommendations should not be too difficult, and the results are definitely worth it.
