September is Healthy Aging Month

Reinvent Yourself Now! 
, September is Healthy Aging Month, Snead Eye GroupPositive thinking is the cornerstone of positive outcomes! Imagine yourself at age 30, 40 or 50 – what were the best attributes of those years? Now pretend you’re that age and live it! In celebration of Healthy Aging month, here are some great tips to reinvent yourself no matter what your current age is!

  1. Be pos­i­tive in your con­ver­sa­tions and your actions every day. When you catch your­self com­plain­ing, check your­self right there and change the con­ver­sa­tion to some­thing pos­i­tive.
  2. Get rid of people in your life that are always negative! Sur­round your­self with ener­getic, happy, pos­i­tive peo­ple of all ages and you will be hap­pier too.
  3. Walk like a vibrant, healthy per­son even if you have mobility challenges. Stand (or sit for those who are wheelchair-bound) up as straight as you can! You will look great and feel bet­ter.
  4. How’s your smile? Research shows peo­ple who smile more often are hap­pier. Don’t like your teeth? Ask your dentist about whitening or other procedures that will help your smile!
  5. Feeling a little lonely? Right this minute, pick up the phone and make a call to do one or more of the fol­low­ing: vol­un­teer your time, take a class, invite some­one to meet for lunch, brunch, din­ner, or cof­fee.
  6. Start walk­ing not only for your health, but to meet your neigh­bors. Have a dog? You’ll be amazed at how a dog can be a con­ver­sa­tion starter! If you don’t have time for a dog, go to your local ani­mal shel­ter and vol­un­teer. You will be thrilled by the puppy love!
  7. Make this month, Healthy Aging Month, the time to set up your annual phys­i­cal examination, eye health and other health screen­ings.

Now is the time to live your healthiest age yet!
