Actionable New Year’s Resolutions for Seniors

Actionable New Year’s Resolutions for Seniors

2020 was such a tumultuous year for everyone. Full of uncertainty, isolation, and fear — there seemed to be no end to all the chaos.

But, finally, a new year has come; it’s time to make better, healthier lifestyle choices to help us achieve optimum wellness and effectively prevent infection.

We at Livathome believe that resolutions are a great starting point for change. Although resolutions may vary from person to person, as a provider of home health care services in Omaha, Nebraska, we wanted to share a couple of actionable new year’s resolutions we think seniors should consider.

  • Commit to a regular exercise routine. One of the many healthcare services we offer our clients is assistance with planning daily activities, such as exercise, outdoor trips, and more. Staying active during old age is the key to healthy aging. Start with at least 10 minutes/ day then work your way up from there.
  • Make better dietary choices. This may mean lessening the number of steaks you eat in a week or abandoning deep-fried chicken completely. What you put in your body affects your overall health, which is why you have to be careful.
  • Spend more time with the grandkids. Research shows that elderly individuals who spend more quality time with their grandchildren live longer and have better physical and mental health outcomes than those who do not.
  • Reach out to old friends and make new ones. Studies have proven that socially active seniors have better cognition, memory, and have a lower risk of depression and dementia.

Whatever your goals this year may be, be intentional with them. Only then you’ll find that you get more value from them than otherwise.
