Are you tired of wrestling with the back and forth of saying “I want to get healthier!” only to never change your eating habits? Or maybe you’ve been saying “I want to learn how to play the piano!” but you never seem to find the time to start. Sometimes the hardest part of setting goals and actually achieving them is getting started. If this sounds like you, then setting SMART goals can help.
So, you have decided that now is the time to sell your loved one’s home and move them to a retirement community. This is a big step, but a positive one. Retirement communities are often better suited for aging seniors with additional care needs because they include thoughtful layouts, incorporated safety features, and plenty of activities to enhance residents’ social lives.
Exercising is one of the most important habits for maintaining our strength, stamina and independence as we age.

As we age, our nutritional needs change just like our bodies do. We may find ourselves needing fewer calories since we are no longer quite as active. We may realize that we gain or lose weight at a different pace than we used to.

However, some simple dietary adjustments can help accommodate these changes and ensure we are our healthiest selves.
Those who maintained a healthy lifestyle during their younger years may also carry through healthy living to their golden years, but it is never too late to get started! Healthy living does not have to be rigid, boring or even difficult. With just a few minor changes, you can start feeling better and moving more so you can get back to enjoying yourself like you did years ago.

As we age, our goals will likely change, but the tradition of setting goals remains exciting and fulfilling as we challenge ourselves to become healthier, more intelligent, Read More
