1. Really cut back on salt
Significantly decrease and ideally forgo your consumption of processed foods. Aim for 1500 mg or less sodium per day, which is about ½ tsp.
2. Eat healthy fats
Add more fatty fish and fats from plants, like flaxseed and nuts. These healthy fats may have extra benefits for your heart and your brain.
3. Protect your joint health
Low-impact activities like walking or biking can help strengthen muscles, support joints, and lessen pain.
4. Focus on muscle retention
Muscles in your body are a use-or-lose proposition. Eating protein and being physically active are equal partners in the quest for maximum health.
5. Embrace aging & celebrate your years
Aging is inescapable but it is also a glorious thing, you have done the work, you have learned many of life’s lessons now you can sit back and enjoy life without all that youthful angst and uncertainty.
According to a study from Yale University, people who viewed aging positively lived 7.5 years longer than those who approached it with a negative attitude.
