September is Healthy Aging Month

Ahh - September.

Time to say goodbye to summer. Hello to fall, back-to-school activities, college football and - hopefully - cooler weather.

September also marks the beginning of the last third of the year. Can you believe 2/3 of this year has already passed us by?

How about those goals you set for 2019? Are you there, yet? Or do you need to make some adjustments?

One of the most important things about September is it's Healthy Aging Month - a great time to evaluate and upgrade our health.

Are you eating right? Getting enough exercise? Managing your stress? Being kind to others?

Are you practicing generosity? Gratitude?

Have you had your regular medical check-ups?

Are you being productive? Completing your projects? Keeping your environments clean and uncluttered?

Do you nurture your friends and family members? Have you expressed your love and appreciation lately?

The especially critical question: Are you having fun and enjoying yourselves?

If no to any of these questions, start today! A lot can happen in the next 30 days.

Ideas to explore

Water is your friend. You can do more strenuous exercises in the water than on land and not even feel it. Try it! Water aerobics

Back to school. Education is not just for young people and kids. As mature adults, the more we use our minds, the better off we are. Learning

Making a difference. Being of service is all about contributing to others in whatever way we can. Service

News you can use

Optimism pays. Studies show that people who are optimistic live longer and are healthier than those who aren’t. Longevity

New tricks. Apparently you can teach old dogs new tricks and save brains in the process. Old dogs

Stimulating. Apparently, a tickle a day – in the right place – may just keep the doctor away. Exciting! That tickles!

Mushrooms anyone? Mushrooms seem to have a lot of health benefits and we should be eating more and more. Nutritional star
