You have always been active. You have worked for forty years. You are about to retire. Everyone asks you: “But what will you do with all your time?” Be assured, this will not be a problem.

Here are tips on how to stay active, healthy and contribute to society in your older years.

* Eat regularly with your friends and your family. You can make a day of it with your family, and it does not have to be a holiday to do it. Prepare the meal together. Make it a meal of everyone’s favorite foods, and teach them the way that you have prepared these kinds of food throughout their lives.

* It may sound depressing but remember you are nearing the end of your life each day. Keeping this in mind will allow you to appreciate even the smallest things in life. It will give you the drive to strive to get the most out of each and every day in your life, keeping your mind & brain active as you aqe is of paramount importance.

Vitamin A is great for skin. Not only does it prevent acne and cancer, it also helps to rid the skin of free radicals that are known to cause wrinkles. Products that have retinol in them have vitamin A, or you can take a vitamin A supplement of at least 15,000 IU daily.

* If you have problems with unsteadiness in walking due to aging, ask your doctor about applying for a handicap placard. This will allow you to park closer to store entrances, restaurants and many other places. Your anxiety will be lessened if you don’t have to fear falling during a lengthy walk!

* The most prevalent cause of hearing loss is aging. Hearing loss is also insidious. It happens so gradually that a person may be hard of hearing without realizing it. If you have not had your hearing tested, you should have a hearing checkup at least by the age of 50.

* One of the tips that you can do in order to achieve healthy aging is to see your doctor on a regular basis. Doctors are our partners when it comes to health care. They give us advice on how to achieve optimum health. They can also catch small problems in our body before it becomes big.

* If you can limit your consumption of alcohol on a daily basis, you will increase your lifespan and also allow your skin to age more gracefully. If you do consume a decent amount of alcohol, increase your intake of water to balance out the effects of the alcohol and keep your body hydrated.

Osteoporosis is an unwelcome part of menopause and aging. It is the loss of bone density. There are many ways you can prevent or at least slow this down. One important tip is to limit or eliminate caffeine consumption. Caffeine causes the body to excrete calcium, the exact opposite of the effect you want!

Now you have heard tips on what to do in your later years. Look for what truly suits you. You worked for other people all your life. Now you have a new range of choices. Whether it is as a volunteer helping others or launching a new career, your life experiences qualify you to forge ahead and meet new challenges.
