Understanding your health needs and striving to meet them is an important part of being a senior. Maintaining your health through simple lifestyle choices will minimize age-related decline and help you live a long and happy life. Whether you want to stave off illness, maintain your independence, or wake up feeling good each and every day, here are some great ways you can meet your health goals.

 

Keep Your Meals Healthy

 

Eating healthy can be difficult when you’re homebound. Fortunately, technology has made it simple for anyone to stick to healthy meal plans by allowing ingredients and ready-made meals to arrive right at your door. Shop your local grocery store from the comfort of your own home. Or, use meal delivery services to receive ingredients for wholesome meals that only require some simple cooking. Alternatively, bring a smartphone app shopping list with you to the grocery store to ensure you only pick up the healthy foods you intended.

 

Eating healthy will ensure your organs, muscles, bones, immune system, and brain remain free from health issues and function optimally as you age. You need many essential nutrients to support these functions including fiber, protein, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, and omega 3’s. Aim to eat a rainbow of colorful fruits and veggies, as well as plenty of lean protein, to ensure you’re getting all of these nutrients from your diet.

 

Get More Quality Sleep

 

Seniors tend to get much less sleep than younger adults, often suffering from higher rates of insomnia and other sleep disorders. However, The National Sleep Foundation explains that most sleep issues experienced by seniors are due to illnesses and the medications used to treat them. This is unfortunate, since getting quality sleep is key to feeling good during the day. If you experience daytime fatigue and have trouble sleeping at night, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor about how medications or psychological conditions may be affecting your sleep. Doctors will be able to help you pinpoint and address any health issues that may be contributing to your poor sleep, including obstructive sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome.

 

Exercise Safely

 

Ensure you make time to exercise every day, striving for a combination of cardio, flexibility, and strength training. Exercise will help you improve flexibility, bone density, and balance to prevent injury from falls. It will also reduce the woes of fatigue, depression, anxiety, and pain. It’s important that you exercise safely so you don’t get hurt. Chair squats and wall push-ups are joint-friendly ways to strengthen both your upper and lower body. If you’re doing yoga for practicing flexibility, keep a chair nearby for support. This will keep you from falling if you lose balance. Another great idea is to head to your local pool to do aquatic exercises for a safe, full-body workout.

 

Socialize More Often

 

According to Bethesda Health Group, being social is one of the keys to healthy aging. For one thing, it helps keep your mind sharp and reduces your risk of dementia. Socializing has also been found to stave off depression and stress. To get connected with people, pursue your hobbies and passions within your community. Find out if there are groups you can join where you can participate in activities with others who share your interests. Senior centers are wonderful places for engaging with people while playing mentally stimulating games or setting up group outings.

 

Stimulate Your Mind with Hobbies

 

Hobbies have numerous benefits for seniors, from beating boredom to improving cognitive functioning. Try to pick up hobbies that challenge your mental abilities to enhance your memory and problem-solving skills. Learning to speak a new language or play an instrument are fantastic options. Other hobbies such as gardening, knitting and painting are more meditative and perfect options for soothing a stressed mind.

 

Don’t wait until you feel unhealthy to start making changes to your lifestyle. Being preventive about aging will help you tackle the sources of illness and pain before they become a problem for you. These healthy habits will soon become second nature as you work to maintain your quality of life well into your golden years.

Benefits of Alkaline Water (X20) and FocusUP Sample Pack

X2O Alkaline water sachet (Xooma Worldwide)

The alkaline water sachet actually comes directly from a coral reef which is located 300 feet below the ocean and contains 70 trace minerals which are so beneficial to our health.  The coral reef has the same mineral composition as our bones which is amazing and probably why I no longer have osteopenia which I had after finishing 2 years of chemo and radiation therapy and given at 45% chance of survival 16 years ago.  The minerals are minimally processed and placed into a natural sachet made out of birch tree (No bleach)  Our soil is depleted of trace minerals we are down 84% from 100 years ago and but they are numerous in the ocean. The minerals alkalize your water to 9.5 which is very important. Dr. Warburg won a Nobel prize for discovering cancer has a hard time surviving in an alkaline body.

THE ROOT CAUSE OF CANCER – Noble prize Winner Dr. Otto H Warburg . Dr. Warburg has devoted his life to study the causes of cancer.
“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception. “Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

Most bottled water when tested has a PH of less than 5, Diet coke is 1.5 and Coke is 2.5  (The sachet will blow up a diet coke)  Absorption is 300 times better than regular water because the water has a negative ION charge from the trace minerals which attract to our cells which have positive charge so absorption is better. Negative IONS are very healing for the body.  The sachet is considered a filtration device in other countries because it can remove chlorine from water immediately after dropping it in chlorinated water (you can test this with OT drops) 

I personally feel the contents in the sachet is beneficial for our bodies to help us stay mineralized, alkalized and hydrated.

According to the Truth About Cancer which you can find online Cancer is related to a toxic environment internally and externally, so personally I believe using X20 provides daily cleansing by providing optimal hydration.

Directions

You will use 2 sachets per day in 4 bottles of filtered water. After placing the sachet in the water bottle shake for 10 seconds and you can use again on the second refill. After the second use you can place the sachet in your plants to help them grow.
