To live a long life, it’s important to have a healthy lifestyle, especially as a senior. However, it may be a little tricky if you don’t know where to start. Below, learn a few tips on how seniors can be healthy.
1. Eat healthy and maintain a healthy weight
To have a healthy diet, eat fruits, vegetables, lean protein. Extra weight increases your risk for multiple illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and osteoarthritis. Additionally, maintain a healthy weight according to your height and age to stay healthy.
2. Keep active
There are plenty of low-intensity workouts that you can do to keep active. For example, Tai chi and qigong are mind-body exercises that can relax and refresh due to their slow, smooth exercise movements. Additionally, taking a walk is beneficial for your health.
3. Get regular checkups
Please make sure you are healthy by visiting a primary care physician or a specialty physician at Doral Health & Wellness. Our medical experts can treat your conditions at our state-of-the-art facility, including illnesses you may not know you have.
4. Be social
Having friends and a support system can keep you in shape. In addition, being social and doing group activities can reduce the risk of depression and feelings of isolation.
5. Enroll to Doral Social Day Care

compassionate environment at Doral Social Day Care.
