Healthy Aging with CBD
It is a privilege to grow older . . . and we’re all trying to do it with a modicum of grace. Below are three helpful pieces of advice for anyone looking to create smart lifelong habits—and each one pays dividends. It’s important to state as well, right of the bat, that there are no quick fixes. But a little patience and hard work will have you looking toward the coming decades with genuine excitement. It is possible to tackle the issue of aging in a healthy and proactive way.
Create healthy routines
It would tough to find something that regular exercise does NOT affect in a positive manner. It can be as basic as morning stretches, but the movement of the body will still deliver better oxygenation and blood flow, keeps your joints flexible and your muscles stretched, and prevent cognitive decline. If we had to pick a single activity . . . we’d recommend taking a daily walk. A little vitamin D, some fresh air, and your entire day is improved.
It takes repetition to make a habit. But exercise will help you to prevent falls, keep your bones dense, and bolster mobility. Since we’re all aiming to remain independent for as long as humanely possible, let’s just call this “taking a big step in the right direction.”
Utilize Preventative Care
For senior citizens, the term “preventative care” insinuates things like cancer screenings and keeping up with vaccinations. For someone not quite into their twilight years, however, the phrase can translate to anything from buying lots of veggies to brushing one’s teeth with regularity.
Take a multivitamin. Fill your home with plants. And don’t be ashamed of the phrase “self-care.” One of our primary recommendations for self-care is the addition of a CBD supplement or a tincture for overall wellness. We love adding Restore CBD Body Cream to our post-workout cooldowns. Be sure always to invest in yourself with safe, high-quality products. As the adage goes, you cannot pour from an empty cup.
Get involved in your community
Connecting with other people does far more for us than keeping us busy! It is one of the ways in which we stay young. Giving is an especially powerful act for increasing gratitude, with both physical and mental impacts. And the science on gratitude is clear; when we are grateful for what we have and know how to vocalize it the appearance of our brains actually changes. Below are several ways in which you can lend a hand to neighbors and, in turn, make your own life better.
- VolunteerMatch lists opportunities by city and region so that you can find something local.
- The Senior Corps connects any adult over 55 with an interest in volunteering to an important cause.
- More resources, including training for leaders, can be found at the Aging Network Volunteer Resource Center.
