Healthy Lifestyle Choices Help Seniors Live Longer
You’re only as old as you feel.
Ever felt that way? You walk down the street with a spring in your step and a smile on your face. You breathe in fresh air and feel grateful for being alive. And you’ve got plenty more years of living ahead of you.
If you’ve spent a lifetime making healthy choices, eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and taking care of your health, you will live longer...a lot longer than the generation before you.
It wasn’t that long ago that the average life expectancy was about 68 years old. But with modern medicine, a greater focus on preventive care, and healthy lifestyle habits, people are living longer.
Today, the average life expectancy is 89 years old. And that’s had a significant impact on when you retire, how much money you need to save, and how you’ll spend your time when you do retire.
Some researchers are even calling 70 the new 50. If you make smart choices about diet, exercise, and preventive care, you can live a long and healthy life. In the big picture, your diet has a major impact on your overall health as you age.
So what should you be eating to promote health, prevent disease, and live longer? More fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, lean meats, nuts and seeds, low-fat dairy or soy products, and plenty of water.
