Being able to stay young is a concern for many people, whether it be in mind, body or even looks. As we get older, many of us start to look for ways through which we can stay young. There are a number of things you can do to improve your physical and mental health as you age, just take a look at a few of our tips.
Keep on Moving
It really is true that unless you move it, you lose it! Of course, moving around can be a lot harder for those struggling from conditions that affect mobility, but even a little movement can help to keep your body healthy. Just going out for a short walk or getting out into your garden can do wonders for your body and mind, helping you to stay young.
Try Some Brain Teasers
The brain is like a muscle that needs to be exercised in order to keep it in tip-top condition. A few simple brain exercises every day can help to keep your mind busy, giving it that little bit of exercise it needs to stay healthy. You could try completing a sudoku puzzle or the newspaper crossword to give your brain a little exercise.
Research suggests that having plenty of social interactions can help to keep the mind healthy and can even ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s, helping you to stay young. By getting out and seeing people, you can even improve your memory and cognitive function, as you use parts of your brain that remain idle when you are alone.
If you are struggling with loneliness, you can get support from charities such as Age UK. Take a look at their website here.
Get Some Sleep
Sleep is good for the mind and for the body, so it does wonders for keeping you young. Not only does your body repair itself as you sleep, your mind recovers and refreshes itself for the next day. If you’re not getting enough sleep, you may notice that you find it harder to complete certain tasks, and you may even feel melancholic or blue.
