New Adventures in Healthy Aging
Life is just another adventure if you look into its channels. On the first day we are born, we begin a new adventure to healthy aging. After a while, we take our first baby step. Our muscles, joints, and bones have already started their progress of aging. Yet, we continue to use our muscles, joints, and bones throughout our life to balance our weight. As we reach puberty, despite the notion that we maintained activities the muscles, joints, and bones begin to degenerate. After puberty, the declination continues, which our body and minds start weakening.
Throughout our life, we depend on soluble fats to reduce heart disease. We depend on nutrients that prevent high cholesterol, which affects so many of us by not eating and exercising correctly. We understand that incorporating the right amount of fibers into our bodies daily will add bulk to our stools. It will speed up to come through and out of our body. High-Fiber diets are something we rely on to slow the cholesterol in which the liver produces. We use fibers to keep down the levels of cholesterol, which if increased we know can block the arteries.
Throughout our youthful days, our body changes, yet as we reach age 35 the same body we took time to maintain starts to decline, i.e. the bodily functions start to decline despite the notion that we took time to provide what our bodies needed. At some time in our life we ask, do we need to lose weight? Many of us ask these questions followed by food binges, ignoring meals, and sitting on the couch hoping that we lose weight. Well, couch potatoes, you missed the point, yet help has arrived. High fiber foods link to potential weight loss and control. Because fibers carry through our bodies, it takes some excess calories along the way. Foods that are high in soluble fat are more filling, we eat less of them, and there is the loss of more calories. When trying to lose weight be sure to consult with your doctor beforehand, because it might not be the best choice for you. Diet supplements can be harmful even the fiber ones.
Our journey continues:
As we reach 40, we start to look back. Throughout our life journey, we have established a residence, vehicle, children, and more. Now that we are older, we find it harder to maintain or keep up with the bills. Seems the harder we try, the more difficult it becomes. You might say I can’t afford to live here anymore by the age you reach 50. The home taxes, maintenance, etc is weighing you down. You start to wander in your mind, what should I do. First, you must ask, do I enjoy traveling and meeting new people while learning at the same time?
At this time, you begin because your situation requires adjustments. You take moments out of each day dwelling on what you need to do. You check into your community to find low-subsidized housing for seniors. You realize that one day; you may be that senior resting a community housing arrangement. If you vision this now, take action instead of waiting until you are too old to do something about your situation. Unfortunately, many older folks lose their homes, belongings, vehicles, insurance, etc as they grow older, which causes them to sink into the world that leads to death. Now is the time to save your future by checking into community housing for seniors. Learn what these facilities have to offer you. In addition, if you like to travel why wait until you are too old to move. Your local travel agent to see if they have any outings planned in the future, that you might like to take. Sometimes travel packages are cheaper and nicer because they make the entire plan and you just go along with the flow of things. Traveling can be educational as well as a relaxation time for you. Seeing new things and meeting new people are both education. Seeing and going to new places you’ll be learning about things and meeting new people you’ll learn how others live and enjoy their life. Who knows socializing with others may build your relationships up for more fun and relaxation.
Have fun with your new adventure and stay healthy.
