Healthy Aging Month

12 Tips for Improving Your Outlook on Life dur­ing Sep­tem­ber: Healthy Aging Month

You’re never too old to reinvent yourself and focus on the positive aspects of growing older. September is Healthy Aging Month, the ideal time to refresh your part in better managing your own health – physically, socially, mentally and financially. Here are some types to improve your outlook on life:

  1. Back-To-School! It’s never too late to take courses to refocus your career, enhance a skill set or expand your knowledge. Many degrees are now available through online courses.
  2. 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.
  3. Be happy always. Smile often. It’s con­ta­gious and wards off naysayers.  Research shows peo­ple who smile more often are hap­pier.
  4. Walk like a vibrant, healthy per­son. You can do it! Make a con­scious effort to take big strides, walk with your heel first, and wear com­fort­able shoes.
  5. Stand up straight! You can knock off the appear­ance of a few extra years with this trick your mother kept try­ing to tell you. Look at your­self in the mir­ror. Are you hold­ing your stom­ach in, have your shoul­ders back, chin up? Check out how much bet­ter your neck looks! Fix your stance and prac­tice it every day, all day until it is nat­ural. You will look great and feel bet­ter. Your waist­line will look trim­mer if you fol­low this advice!
  6. Dental Hygiene is key! Your teeth are just as impor­tant to your good health as the rest of your body. Not only is it the first thing peo­ple notice, but good oral health is a gate­way to your over­all well-being. Go to the den­tist reg­u­larly.
  7. Want to vacation? Want to volunteer? Do both! Perhaps it’s time to visit new places, connect and give back. Many travelers are opting for “giving back” vacations. Volunteer Vacations Across America ( is an excellent resource with more than 200 trips for volunteering to help people.
  8. Start walk­ing not only for your health but to see the neigh­bors. Have a dog? You’ll be amazed how the dog can be a con­ver­sa­tion starter.
  9. Make this month the time to set up your annual phys­i­cal and other health screen­ings. Go to the appoint­ments and then, hope­fully, you can stop wor­ry­ing about ail­ments for a while.
  10. Make an appointment with your financial advisor or find one this month to talk through your current finances and long-range monetary plans. Don’t be afraid to readjust investments or pull out of financial commitments that weigh you down.
  11. Eat fresh! Make a commitment to add more fresh fruits and vegetables to your daily snacks and meals. Many local farmers markets are still available in September, and stores still carry fresh, local produce.
  12. Let's get creative! It's never too late to pick up a new hobby: art, music, dance. The love of the arts motivates, inspires, and educates people of all ages!
