New Year Resolutions for Seniors
Businessworld|January 12, 2022
THE NEW YEAR IS UPON US and it is time to think of those resolutions again! Whether you resolve to be fitter and healthier, connect more socially or to tick off some points on your bucket list, this is a time to take stock of the year gone by and to think of the year ahead. Covid has taken more than its fair share of our time and energy and we have learned to understand the new normal.
Ashutosh Garg

Given below are some thoughts you could consider adding to your list of New Year resolutions.

Eat Better For Your Health

Take your health into your hands. Change your eating pattern. Take baby steps toward eating right. After all, if you have been careless with your food habits, you cannot change these overnight.

Less fats, more fibre with a healthier mix of fruits, vegetables and nuts is always advisable for most people. As seniors, it becomes even more important and relevant for us to regulate our diet. As some wise people say, “stop eating just before you are full!” Others say that at least half of your plate should be fruits and vegetables. Remember that eating better is the only answer to reducing your weight.

Find a New, Healthy Activity

Build exercise or yoga into your daily routine. A round of tennis or golf, a brisk walk for at least 30 minutes every day (150 minutes per week of walking is the minimum recommended), yogic breathing exercises, swimming or cycling would be great to get into your daily schedule.

I have met several seniors who have started running and competing with people of their own age. In the process of staying fit, they have also found a whole new community of like-minded and passionate friends.

Complete Your Bucket List

Give yourself a break. You have earned this. Over the years, all of us have been adding to our bucket list. This list has kept getting longer since we were not able to find the time during our work life. Now is the time to start ticking off some items.
