No matter how old you are, thinking about the future is always a good idea. If you don’t know where you’re going in life, it’s tough to make decisions in the present. You have to have a plan, a goal, a way that you imagine your life is going to be.
Of course, when most of us picture growing older, we think of aging in very general terms. It’s tough for a young, fit, and healthy person to imagine losing mobility or falling unwell due to aging, but it’s something we all need to be aware of as a possibility. Why should we linger on such depressing thoughts? So we can do something about them.
There are things you can do, right now, that will benefit you in later life. Develop the good habits now, and you can look forward to your golden years sparkling just as much as the rest of your life did.
Note: as you always should, talk to a doctor before adding a supplement to your diet or embarking on a new regime.
Collagen / Gelatin
As we age, the amount of collagen and gelatin we naturally produce begins to decline. This can lead to facial wrinkles, stiff joints, and a loss of flexibility. Supplementing these compounds back into your diet is the perfect way of ensuring that you feel younger for longer, and are able to continue doing the physical activities that you enjoy.
Our bones are 99 percent calcium, which is why it’s important to keep calcium topped up throughout our lives. This is especially important in later years, when our bone density can diminish substantially. Many older people rely on calcium supplements to keep their bones in good shape; and according to these AlgaeCal reviews and testimonials, it seems to be pretty effective.
Consider supplementing calcium to strengthen your bones, especially if you have used birth control at some point in your life. Hormonal birth control such as the pill can lower bone density, so supplementation would be recommended.
At present, the connection between coconut oil and staving off dementia is largely anecdotal. However, using coconut oil over other cooking methods is a decent idea for your health anyway. If this then proves to be of benefit to your mental cognition in later life, then more’s the better!
Whether you’re currently a workout queen or more sedentary, getting into the habit of taking gentle exercise on a regular basis will do you the world of good as you age. By “gentle”, we mean going for a walk or cycling for leisure rather than at spinning class speed. Gentle exercise is good for your mind and your body, so allow it to become a pleasant hobby that you actively look forward to.
Get into the habit of walking for pleasure.
By establishing the above habits at a young age, your body will be as fit as it can possibly be throughout every stage of your life. Enjoy yourself-- by implementing the above, you’re certainly going to feel good enough to have a whale of a time!
