Life is hard and demanding no matter what stage of life. Some stages are easier than others, depending on the person’s own circumstances. With the holiday season approaching, now is a good time to check in with elderly or senior loved ones.

Despite all the trend and fads, there is one diet that is always on the list of the healthiest diets – The Heart Healthy Diet. There are several different types of “heart healthy diets”, but they all contain foods that are proven to lower your weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Fruits and vegetables were important then for your growth and wellbeing, but as we begin to age, they become increasingly vital. In many cases, these are the foods that play an important role in reducing the risk of serious conditions and diseases later in life, including heart disease, stroke, hypertension, digestive problems, and even forms of cancer.

A recent study out of North Carolina University found that those who viewed aging positively were more resilient when dealing with stressful situations. Conversely, those with a more negative outlook tended to experience higher negative emotional effects.

A slight change in our breathing patterns or an occasional cough isn’t something to automatically raise alarm, but more something that needs to be monitored. We all age, and our bodies slow down, but at what point does aging become an illness or disease?
