6 Steps Men Should Take For Their Health at Any Age

Up to 70% of men’s health problems are preventable through lifestyle changes. These are steps men of all ages can take today to take charge of their health and live longer, healthier lives.

Healthy Food Shopping for Elders

“As we age, we require fewer calories but more of certain nutrients including calcium, potassium and vitamins D and B12,” said Nancy Esson, Client Relations and Owner, Georgian Triangle “Many elders encounter difficulties when shopping for and cooking nutrient-rich foods, but dietary obstacles are usually quite manageable with a little coaching and assistance. Staying active and independent as an older adult often starts at the grocery store.”

Cold Weather Safety for Seniors

When winter’s beauty turns more beast with arctic winds, mounds of snow and bone-chilling temperatures, the season’s harsh side can prove especially dangerous for senior adults. Even older snowbirds escaping to warmer climates still can encounter dips in the thermometer, dampening rains and icy navigation.

Anti-Ageing Exercises for the Brain

In addition to proactively engaging the mind, Esson recommends a holistic approach to better brain health by lowering stress, eating nutritiously, maintaining regular physical exercise, getting adequate sleep and staying socially engaged.

Staying Active with Age

Most people can exercise throughout their lives, even with conditions like arthritis, heart disease and diabetes. In many cases, physical activity may improve these health conditions. For each decade past age 30, inactive people can lose an average of 3 to 5 percent of their muscle mass, translating to loss of strength and mobility.

Getting Along With Family After a Parent Dies

What happened to those blissful family reunions brimming with laughter or listening to your brother’s quirky stories during the holidays? The loss of one or both parents can complicate everything from settling wills to simply talking on the phone. Sometimes the death of a parent reveals relationship tension that can widen into frustration, blame, distancing or rage.

Risk Assessments for Older Adults

The European Commission reports that by 2025, more than 20 percent of Europeans will be aged 65 or older with a rapid increase of those over the age of 80. In Japan, the 65 and over population is expected to escalate to 40 percent by 2050. The Ministry of Health in Brazil projects 32 million people over the age of 60 in the country by 2020—a 500 percent increase in 40 years.

Tracing the Family History

Do you remember the story of when your grandparents first met? What it was like for them to serve in the war? What about their favorite memories from childhood? What was life like before television or the computer?

Smile! It Improves Your Health!

As humans, we first begin smiling in the womb. As children, we smile more than 400 times a day. Yet as we age, our faces begin to show more blank expressions and even frowns. The happiest of adults smile an average of 40–50 times a day, while the average adult only smiles 20 times a day. Fortunately, there is good news about smiling that may inspire us to change our ways. Besides others viewing us as more attractive, confident and relaxed when we smile, growing research finds that smiling elicits a plethora of health benefits, including less stress and a happier, longer life.

Travelling in Seasonal Weather

Torrential rains are expected later today, making travel across the region treacherous. Gale-force winds are grounding flights. Going on a trip any time of year takes some attentive planning to work around both travel and destination weather, particularly if you are an older adult or are accompanying an elder loved one. Increasingly popular senior travel includes grandparents treating grandkids to celebration trips and adult children vacationing with parents or in-laws. But how does seasonal weather affect older adults who travel
