There seems to be a formula for healthy aging, suggested by the latest research on centenarians and the research comparing people in their 20’s – 40’s to those in their 60’s – 90’s. Some of the predictors of healthy aging include: physical, intellectual, emotional, relational, spiritual and sexual. Maintaining health and wellness in each of these areas may not prolong your life, but it will certainly improve the quality and enjoyment of your daily existence as you age. And, you may be surprised to find your are living longer than you ever imagined possible.
One of the things that most bother people as they age are the visual signs of aging, everyone knows that is a fact of life and that we all age, but it becomes difficult to accept that we are no longer going to look great and have to accept wrinkles, face lines and sagging skin. However with the advances of technology many anti aging treatments and products have been developed that can reverse those signs.
Wouldn’t it be nice to live to a ripe old age generally free from the disease, aches and pains, and the mental deterioration that afflicts so many older Americans? Regular exercise is a great way to promote healthy aging because it affects so many areas of health in a positive way. Exercising on an elliptical trainer is a great exercise to add healthy years to your life because it can provide an all body workout that is easy on your joints.
