Looking after your health may not be a priority when you are young. As we get older, we worry more and more about the impact of aging on our bodies. Chronic illnesses can creep in, and the lifestyle choices we made when we were younger may start to have an effect. The body we have is the only one we’ve got. So what can we do to ensure it’s still in great shape when we’re older?

All the choices you make today could impact on your health and your body’s function later on in life. Looking after your body while you are still young can help ensure it is still working as well as you would like when you are older. Eating well every day is a good place to start. But exercising your body every day could be the key to keeping it in good shape.

It’s possible you already have some medical conditions that require medication to control. A prescription card can help you with the cost, but your body may be vulnerable to other conditions or symptoms as you get older. You can help prevent the condition worsening by giving your body everything it needs to stay healthy. Avoid eating processed foods, and try to include fruit or vegetables with every meal. Keep each of your muscle groups strong and toned with daily stretches and exercises.

If you can give your body everything it needs to stay in good shape, then you may also be delaying the signs of aging. None of us like the thought of wrinkles on our faces. And we definitely don’t want to suffer from stiff, aching joints. Regular exercise to keep the joints moving is key here. You shouldn’t do so much that you end up injuring yourself. But it is important to move every day. Walking keeps the heart rate up just enough to benefit the circulatory system.

Walking also works almost every muscle and joint in the body. A brisk walk makes you breathe deeper, bringing more fresh air and oxygen into your lungs. Engage your core and walk with good posture to keep your muscles strong. This also helps to avoid injury as you get older. A strong core helps you maintain your balance as well as keeping your skeleton in a good position as you move.

You can work out individual groups of muscles with simple exercises. Sitting in an office or in front of the TV is not good for the body. If you can keep your body moving, you are less likely to suffer problems like obesity, diabetes and heart disease in the future. Of course, we all need to work. Balancing your lifestyle could be the key to healthy living.

It doesn’t take much to help ensure your body continues to be ache-free and mobile. An hour a day devoted to looking after it could be all it takes. Put in what’s right for good health, and your body will thank you for it. Most importantly, your older self will thank you for taking the time to look after your future.
