Your Best Years Yet

Doing what it takes to maintain all-around health when your working days are done.

The day will come, and may have already come, for you to say goodbye to life as you've known it for 20, 30, or 40-plus years. Reaching retirement may mean your nine to five workdays are over, but there are still plenty of years left to enjoy. As life slows down and you have more free time on your hands, how will you spend those years? What you choose to do in that extra time has a huge impact on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. So use it wisely!

If you want to enjoy your retirement years in good health, make use of these practical ways to stay healthy in all areas of life.

Physical Fitness Still Matters

Exercise and diet are at the core of a healthy life. Interested in reducing your risk of disease; living longer; getting better sleep; and reducing anxiety, depression, and cognitive decline? Then you’ll need to get plenty of exercise. It's never too late to start exercising, but if it's been years since you've put on running shoes, see your doctor for an evaluation. Then slowly ease into a workout routine that includes at least 30 minutes a day of moderate-intensity exercise. Alternate days of the week you spend doing cardio (walking, ballroom dancing, water aerobics, gardening, or tennis) and strength training (lifting weights, using weight machines, or doing calisthenics) to ensure your body is in tip-top shape for the years to come.

Remember, however, that your body isn't what it used to be. Your metabolism is slowing down and your nutritional needs are changing. To combat the effects of aging and fight disease, you need to eat a balanced diet full of nutritional goodness. Plan to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and low-fat dairy and avoid junk and processed foods.

Minding Your Emotional Health

Change isn't always easy, and the milestone of retirement brings a gamut of mixed emotions. A new identity, a loss of routine, relationship adjustments, and feeling old may lead to anxiety, depression, fear, loneliness, or boredom. While these emotions are normal, they don't have to stick around and drag you down.
Emotionally healthy retirees learn to manage stress in healthy ways (exercise, meditation, or therapy), adapt a new daily routine that involves things they enjoy (volunteering, traveling, or hobbies), cultivate strong friendships, and set goals to work towards. Be emotionally healthy by doing these for your own well-being!

Be Mentally Sound

The old saying, “Use it or lose it,” applies to your mental health during retirement. Your lifestyle may be a bit slower, but your brain should not slow down at all. Stay sharp and keep your mind healthy by engaging in creative, mentally challenging activities. Learn a new skill, read books, do crossword puzzles, stay social, or play an instrument.

Finding Spiritual Growth

There's a connection between your body, mind, and spirit. The health of one affects the others. Part of maintaining spiritual health in retirement requires you to know there's purpose to your life. Your nine to five job may be over and the kids are out of the house, but your life still has meaning. Take time to meditate, join a spiritual family of faith, and serve others in love. Spend quality time with the younger generation teaching and mentoring them in the spiritual principles of faith, hope, and love that guide your life.
