A Healthy Retirement

The pace of life may slow down during retirement, but your health can be better than ever.

Are you nearing 65 and considering retirement? Good for you!
For years, you’ve saved and planned for retirement and it’s finally almost upon you. You may be looking forward to travelling, spending time with the grandkids, doing hobbies, or volunteering, all without feeling tied down. For many people, the retirement years are some of the best and most rewarding of their life. Others experience decreasing independence, a lack of social connection, and declining mental and physical health.

What makes the difference? Good health. For the best golden years possible, help make your retirement as healthy as possible with these tips.

Stay Active

Life slows down during retirement, but that’s not an excuse for you to get lazy. Exercise is a major part of maintaining good health as you age. And now that you’re not punching the clock, a lack of time is no longer a valid excuse to skip your workouts. Good for your heart, mental health, bones, and muscles, regular exercise will help keep you independant and free of chronic disease. All you have to do is find a workout you enjoy and stick with it. Low-impact exercises are recommended for people with achy joints. Work with your trainer to find a routine that meets your goals and needs.

Stay Connected

Loneliness becomes more common as you age. It’s also a risk factor for disease and mental health decline. If most of your friendships were with your coworkers, you may be more at risk for loneliness and depression. Now that you no longer see them on a daily basis, it’s important to foster other relationships. Plan social outings, meet friends to exercise, or visit family. Get involved with a local charity or faith-based community.

Stay Creative

Remember how you always wanted to learn to play guitar, knit, or work a pottery wheel? Now is the time to do it. As you age, it’s important to keep your mind engaged. Being creative is a wonderful way to spend time in your retirement. Painting, knitting, gardening, quilting, birding, and woodworking are just a few options. Don’t have a hobby? Learn one.

Stay Mindful

When you’re not on a schedule, it’s easy to become lazy in what you eat. Instead of three meals a day, you may be tempted to graze on snacky foods throughout the day, eat out more often, or indulge in unhealthy treats. However, eating a healthy diet is key to a healthy retirement. Take time to plan nutritious meals that include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein. Keep high-processed and high calorie foods out of the house and

Stay Mentally Active

Even though you’re not working, you need to keep your mind engaged to ward off dementia. People who continue to challenge their mind as they age remain independent for longer. Stay mentally active by reading, doing crossword puzzles, learning a new skill, doing sudoku puzzles, or listening to podcasts.

Stay On Top of Your Health

Prevention is the best medicine. The earlier disease is detected, the greater your chance of successful treatment or speedy recovery. Get regular medical, vision, and dental checkups. Talk with your doctor about which health screenings are recommended for your age.

For women, this means continuing regular breast exams, pelvic exams, pap smears, and mammograms. Men need regular testicular exams and prostate screenings. Both men and women should have annual cholesterol checks, their skin examined for suspicious moles, a colonoscopy every ten years, and a bone density test every two to five years. Your doctor may also recommend vaccinations for pneumonia, shingles, and influenza.

With these small steps, you’ll take a giant leap toward an enjoyable, healthy retirement!
