Supply Enough Fluids

Water has many roles to play apart from regulating metabolism and managing your skin. Drink enough.


Add Protein To Every Meal...

Ensure that a bit of protein is included in every meal as it is necessary to keep your muscles going when you are ageing. If not meat, try to go for nuts, beans or yoghurt.


Go Out

Sitting at home for too long isn't good. Social isolation is also unhealthy. At least, in the evenings, come out of your house and go for a walk. As you age, isolation could increase the chances of falling prey to depression.

Brush Well

Oral health is the first step towards good heath. Dental problems also play a role in your overall health. So, clean your teeth well and keep dental issues at bay if you wish to live long.
