In a nutshell, life is a series of transitions. The older we get, the clearer our perspective is when it comes to this reality. Think about it. We transition from a baby to a toddler, from a toddler to a preschooler. We continue with our education into elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and sometimes even grad school. After our school days we transition into our career and a family. We transition once again as our children grow older and their needs change. We may transition into new jobs, new relationships, and new homes. Our goal through it all is to age both gracefully and well. To live each phase of our lives as healthy individuals without limitations.
Unfortunately, there are times that life throws us curve balls and our health comes in jeopardy. We may need to transition our expectations to accept a lifestyle with limitations. Yet, while that may be the case, it does not mean that our quality of life needs to be compromised. Healthy aging means transitioning ourselves again and again, and continuing to do what we can to enjoy our full potential.
This mindset increases in significance with the passing of each decade. Our body begins to feel the effects of our life and how we treated it. There are the telltale signs of wear and tear – aches, pains, limited flexibility, extra weight, wrinkles, loss of muscle mass. But, this does not mean we need to accept aging lying down. In fact, aches and pains is not synonymous with aches and pains. They do not go hand in hand.
The key to healthy aging is taking a proactive stance on your health. It means being aware of how you treat yourself and listening to what your body is telling you. It means taking the initiative to ensure your body has what it needs to thrive no matter what your age. It means:
- Getting adequate sleep
- Eating healthy
- Adding nutritional supplements when appropriate
