From the moment we’re born, our bodies begin to change, and these changes continue throughout life.⠀⠀⠀
While change is inevitable, HOW and WHEN we age is highly influenced by our lifestyle.⠀⠀⠀
And much of what we call “aging” is actually very much an accumulation of lifestyle habits.⠀⠀⠀
Here are 3 simple habits that can help you live a healthier, more enjoyable, and meaningful life, longer:⠀
1. KEEP MOVING — Exercise is one of the most impactful things we can do for our health. Exercise also improves mood and well-being. This is especially true if exercise is social, like walking with a friend or attending group classes.⠀⠀⠀
2. EAT HEALTHY MEALS — Although all nutrients are important, two are critical during the older years:⠀⠀⠀
• Protein: this helps to preserve valuable lean tissue (muscle and bone); ⠀⠀⠀
3. MODERATE or ELIMINATE ALCOHOL — The research on alcohol consumption (even moderate consumption) is mixed. The body can’t store alcohol, so it must prioritize clearing it. As the liver metabolizes alcohol, the side effect is that it may delay or neglect other tasks — like digesting, absorbing, and storing other nutrients like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

The earlier you start implementing these ^ ^ habits, the better, but these habits can make a difference no matter your current age.
