Here are three simple habits to help promote healthspan.
Exercise without feeling like it’s exercise:
Research shows regular physical activity plays a protective role against dementia. Sounds simple, but walking, running, biking, even taking the stairs all contribute to illness prevention, including dementia.
Spend time in nature either alone or with others:
Studies show that getting outside helps lower blood pressure, heart rate and risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Take a brisk walk in a park, or in your neighborhood, and bring along a family member, or friend to join you.
If you like your work, do it for as long as you can:
A recent study suggests that early retirement is associated with an increased mortality risk. Working, even part-time, keeps your mind engaged, which helps promote an improved health span. People have been shown to benefit from learning a new skill or engaging in a new hobby later in life.
