Exercise is especially important for seniors. Just thirty minutes of light to moderate exercise each day, such as walking, can help to reduce your blood pressure, reduce stress, and manage your weight.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet helps to prevent health conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer. Be sure to incorporate sufficient lean protein, leafy greens, fruits, and whole grains into your diet.

After the death of a spouse, or after the kids leave home, it's common for seniors to feel lonely. Joining a club or a meetup group for seniors can help raise your spirits and provide you with a sense of compassion and belonging.
