Published October 2nd, 2015 by Dr. Markson

We all know that Florida is the place to be for retirement. It's warm and has beautiful waterfront views all over the place. But, how are you supposed to enjoy the beautiful outdoors if your aging body is keeping you down?

Growing old can suck big time if you don't take good care of yourself. No matter where you find yourself in retirement you'll want to be able to enjoy it. Here are a few things you can start doing ASAP to make sure you can tackle old age with ease:

1. Stay in Shape

This probably seems obvious, and it's something you should be doing no matter your age. Everything in life is easier if you are in optimal shape. But exercise isn't the only part of staying healthy. You need to properly nourish your body so that your workouts actually do something to benefit you! Give up the fatty foods and stick to a healthy diet. (The Mediterranean diet and the Caveman diet have proven very effective for many patients.) We also recommend that our patients take a regular dose of Standard Process supplements vitamins that are all natural and help to keep your body functioning at its best.

2. Keep Your Mind Happy and Healthy

Diet and exercise are important for your physical health, but mental health also plays a huge role in the way you feel. Exercise helps to produce helpful endorphins that will keep you feeling happy. But you can also try other brain stimulating activities such as crosswords, puzzles, playing/reading music, reading, etc. Anything that will keep your brain engaged! Make time for it since it will keep your mind sharp.

That's it. Seems simple, but we all have a tendency to let other things get in the way. Focus on keeping your mind and body healthy and you'll be better equipped to tackle your daily stressors and the impending doom associated with old age.
