Ageing Well Part Two
We can enjoy great health well into old age—but it’s all about making the right, and healthy, choices. In the second part of this two-volume set, we look at some of the healthy lifestyle choices that will help you live a long life without the usual aches and pains associated with ageing. Exercise is important, but it doesn’t require sweating it out in the gym: we look at several gentle exercises that will pay dividends, including step classes, balance training and even good old fashioned walking.
It’s also important to pay attention to your joints, and we explore some of the ways you can keep them healthy and well.
Our mental wellbeing is an aspect of health that often gets ignored, but it becomes increasingly vital as we age. We look at meditation, Tai chi, qigong, as well as joining a social group.
Finally, we look at some of the functional foods that give the ageing body vital nutritional support.
