How To Stay Healthy In Your 70s

 

  • Don't automatically attribute new physical or mental symptoms to getting older.

     

  • Eat a variety of foods and make sure you're getting your five portions of fruits and vegetables.

     

  • Take a multivitamin and make sure you're getting 800 units of vitamin D and 1,500 milligrams of calcium from foods or supplements.

     

  • Continue to evaluate your need for estrogen replacement therapy.

     

  • Get some form of aerobic and strength-training exercise for a total of at least 30 minutes most days of the week. Exercise your mind too by engaging in productive activities such as volunteerism and hobbies.

     

  • Fall-proof your home.

     

  • Keep a list of every medication you take and go over it with your physician during your annual examination.

     

  • Seek immediate attention for any infection -- everything from a skin sore to cold or flu.

     

  • Ask someone you trust to objectively assess your driving skills; give up your license if you're no longer safe behind the wheel.

     

  • Make sure your family and physician have and understand your advance directives (living will and durable power of attorney for health care).
