How Seniors Can Look and Feel Great in the New Year
Regardless of your age, the new year signals a fresh start and can have an impact on all sorts of things — including how you look and feel. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up, practice more self-care, or achieve another goal, it’s never too late to start doing something new to help yourself feel your best. The following tips brought to you by the Vancouver Home Health Care Agency can help you begin the new year on the right foot in terms of your physical appearance and your health and well-being.
Regular exercise is a great way to feel good. Find an activity you enjoy, whether it’s walking, jogging, or exercising at home — whatever works best for you and your comfort level. If you’re having trouble starting an exercise routine on your own, join a gym or attend a yoga class at your local community center in Vancouver. Support from others can give you added motivation and accountability as you work toward your goal.
Everyone needs a little extra pampering now and then, whether it’s a long soak in a warm bath or an evening out with friends. These activities are often seen as time-consuming luxuries — but self-care isn’t frivolous. It can improve your well-being because it allows you to practice mindfulness.
Eating well is a great way to look and feel your best. Eating plenty of fruit, vegetables, and protein can help you gain or maintain a healthy weight. Eating healthier doesn’t mean giving up tasty food. There are plenty of healthy recipes that are delicious and nutritious.
Start a Hobby
You’re never too old to start a new hobby! Hobbies are a great way to relax, but they also provide opportunities to try new things. This year, set aside some time each week (or month) to learn a new skill or pursue an old passion. Participating in activities can help keep you motivated while enhancing your life.
Take a Trip
So you’ve made your resolutions and set some new year’s goals, but how do you follow through? Try planning a trip that allows you to achieve several of those goals in one adventure. For example, if you want to lose weight and eat better, take a food-based trip where you can sample new restaurants every day. If your resolution is about taking more risks or exploring more of your city, book an adventure vacation.
There’s no shame in treating yourself, whether it’s with a new piece of clothing or some fun accessories. Buy yourself something you like, and feel good about the way you look — which is likely to make you feel better about yourself overall. Consider buying a gemstone necklace, such as a tiger’s eye necklace. The alternating bands of color in a tiger’s eye appear to reverse as the stone or light source is moved, creating a fascinating image. Bringing your best friend on a shopping spree or hitting the spa can be both relaxing and enjoyable. You can even do an afternoon of window-shopping, or see a movie by yourself.
Look and Feel Great
Feeling great is possible if you put in some effort. Self-care, eating well, and exercising are a few ways to get started.
