New Year’s Resolutions for Seniors

New Year’s resolutions are for everyone, yet hardly anyone follows through with them. When considering your resolution for this year, remember to choose one that not only interests you but can contribute to your health and wellness for longevity. Here are some great ideas you can consider when choosing your 2020 resolution!

Make Life Easier

Are there things you keep doing that frustrate you, without thinking about an easier way to accomplish a frustrating task? Too often we let ourselves get annoyed with various tasks instead of thinking of a way to eliminate or minimize the annoyances. For example, if you seem to drop things on the floor or forget to grab an item before you crawl into bed, consider purchasing a reacher. It’s a simple and inexpensive fix. Consider other areas of your life that could be made easier with one simple fix.

Strengthen Your Brain

Keep your brain sharp by challenging it. This could be through games, puzzles or even reading. Maybe try reading something out of the ordinary or begin a puzzle that’s out of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself with something you enjoy doing. 

Drink More Water

Our bodies need water to function at its best. It’s suggested that most people drink eight, eight-ounce glasses of water a day. You’ll find renewed energy by drinking more water, as it helps to flush out the things your body doesn’t need. 

Speak Up for Yourself

Too often we decide to choose the path of least resistance. However, there comes a time when you should speak up for yourself and say what it is you want. Let this be the year where you let your voice be heard. 

Mentoring

As an older adult, you have a lifetime’s worth of advice to share with someone. Consider joining a local mentoring program where you can share your knowledge and kindness with someone. They may even surprise you by teaching you a thing or two about yourself. 

Start a Club

Start a club based on a hobby that you enjoy. It’s a great way to surround yourself with like-minded people while doing something you love. 

Eat More Vegetables

You’ve been told to eat vegetables your whole life. If you’re not a veggie-lover, we’re sorry to say that making sure to eat your greens is still a necessity for a healthy life. You can try different ways of cooking them to make it fun!

Be Active

An active lifestyle makes for a happy lifestyle. Implement daily movement for at least twenty minutes to feel your best and keep your body strong. This could be through walking, biking or anything that gets your heart rate up!
