Do you wish to experience energy, vitality and exuberance while consciously adapting to the changes that occur throughout your life and experience natural and graceful aging without an iota of anxiety, worry and despair?
According to Ayurveda, human body is engineered to live for 120 years. When proper diet, natural lifestyle, adequate sleep and self-mastery are acquired we can experience good health and longevity and yes, age can just be a number.
Healthy ageing is the process of optimising opportunities for physical, social and mental health to enable older people to take an active part in society without discrimination and to enjoy an independent, good quality of life. As per WHO, if an individual is able to successfully develop, nurture and maintain the functional ability of one's physical, mental and social wellbeing, the so-called age-related complications can be effortlessly defied.
Many of us worry and become anxious, rather unnecessarily, as we age. These include living alone, family disputes, loss of a spouse or family members, aging-related cognitive impairments and disabilities, and transport issues. Consequences of social isolation can be dangerous, particularly for individuals already predisposed to health problems.
The fact is, time is not in our control. Hence, it’s wise to remain active and become healthy. Some of the benefits of staying active and healthy as you get older include increasing wellbeing and participation, recovering from illness more quickly, reducing the risk of getting chronic disease, and preventing falls.
Good nutrition is important, no matter what your age. However, the nutritional requirements changes as we age. Balanced nutrition gives the necessary energy and can also help control weight while we age. It may also help prevent some diseases, such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.
