10 Golden Rules of Successful Aging

IMG_0530I recently read an article about the 10 golden rules of successful aging. Here’s a summary for you to get you thinking. I’m particularly fond of points 1, 3, 8 and 10. What about you? Come and cook with us!

Genes account for only about 25% of our health and longevity; the rest is influenced by where and how we live. These are two factors that we can control, starting now. The following rules for healthy living will help us achieve better health:

1. Eat well
2. Maintain a healthy weight
3. Stay physically active
4. Get quality sleep
5. Wear sunscreen
6. Collaborate with a good primary care doctor regularly
7. Find your passion
8. Connect with others
9. Stop complaining – change what you can and accept what you cannot
10. Stay curious
