It’s not too late to start the year off on the right track. There’s no steadfast rule that says you can only take back your health and set goals on January 1. It can happen any day, including today. While good health is important for everyone, seniors especially need to take control of their health in order to lead a longer, more fulfilling life. Here’s how to rein in your health this year so you can have many more years to come.

“Just what the doctor ordered”

One of the harsh truths about getting older is the need to see more doctors, but with a healthy lifestyle and preventive care, you should be able to keep some issues at bay. If you’re a senior age 65 or up, Medicare has you covered. Make sure you’re taking full advantage of Medicare insurance by accessing Part B for medical and outpatient mental health services and Part D for prescription drugs. There’s also the option to take out a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) from a private insurance company to supplement your health coverage. Plans vary by state, so check online to see what’s available to you.

“You are what you eat”

As your body ages, it’s important provide the right sustenance for good health and longevity. What you eat has an impact on how you feel and how your body functions. It can be difficult to develop good habits, stay on track, and find time for cooking healthy meals. A meal prep specialist like themealprepco.com can be the right answer to your clean eating needs. Why not take the guesswork out of what to eat and save time on food preparation?

“Just do it”

Nike’s slogan has the right idea on the brain. When it comes to getting your body moving, don’t think. Just do. Exercise is the yin to the yang of a balanced diet. Every little bit counts, even if it’s just a short walk. Try incorporating a safe exercise program to avoid causing injury. And don’t worry if you start out slow. With regular practice and training, you’ll get better over time. You’ll become healthier on the inside and outside, and you may even regain your youthful energy.

“Make love, not war”

Bitter resentment, regret, and unresolved conflicts can cause stress and anger in anyone. When you build it up over many years of family tension, neighbor disagreements, and workplace strife, it takes a toll on your mental health. When you’re imbalanced from a negative situation that you never resolved, you’re at war with your emotional self.

Rather than walking around for the rest of your life with underlying anger toward someone (or the world), resolve to bury the hatchet and put conflicts aside. Forgive others so you can be happy. Reconnect with friends that you fell out with, and mend broken familial relationships. Love yourself by walking away from relationships that don’t serve you right.

“Don’t worry, be happy”

Life is a series of stressful situations, but the way you choose to respond makes a difference in how you’ll feel. When life throws you lemons, do you curl up in a ball and cry? Do you get angry and throw them back? No. You make the best fresh squeezed, sugar-free lemonade that has ever touched your lips. It’s easier to panic or get upset than to let things roll off your back, but the only person who will be hurt by that reaction is you. Stress, high anxiety, and worry can actually contribute to the aging process, so it’s in your best interest as a senior to let things go and choose happiness.

Your retirement years should be your best years. The door has closed on your career, childrearing is over, and you now have all the free time to do things you love — whether it’s traveling, writing a memoir, or volunteering at a local nonprofit. It’s your life to live. In order to fully enjoy your golden years, get yourself into the best health possible, both mentally and physically.

Hamilton Heart Foundation

We’re taking a break from our usual health blog to let you know a fun thing that we’ve been lucky enough to be involved with, The Hamilton Heart Foundation!

If you haven’t heard of Hamilton’s Heart Foundation, we encourage you to look it up. They’re doing great things in the community and they have some great events coming up that will be a fantastic way to give back to the community while having a fun night out!

Lynell Hamilton started this foundation to get kids off the street, give back to the community, and to get the youth in San Diego active and involved in sports all over the city. They have started football leagues for different ages in the communities to get families and kids participating in sports, and for the kids to have positive role models in their lives. Lynell has his friends in the NFL come and play with the kids, teach them how to act on and off the field, and reinforce how important school is.

In today’s society, our youth are plagued with a variety of obstacles. Single parent homes, forced fed materialism, obesity. Our goal with the Wellness program was to address these issues and offer our service to right this wrong. Knowledge is the key, let’s improve the way we deliver the message, make it irresistible to our listeners.” -Lynell Hamilton

What is Hamiltons Heart?

This foundation has started a program that goes around to all the different schools in San Diego, and does a little lesson about overall health, and then does a mini sports camp for the kids, doing drills that the NFL does, and having players come and do the drills with the kids. The Chargers used to do something similar when they were in town, but with their move, it left a huge hole in the San Diego school system that the Hamilton Heart Foundation stepped up and filled.

The Meal Prep Company was fortunate enough to be apart of the educational side of things. We brought our knowledge of nutrition, simplified it, and taught the kids the basics of what you should eat, and how your body uses the food.

We often think that the school system teaches everything the kids need to know; unfortunately, that’s not the case, especially regarding health. When I (Kimmy) worked for the San Diego school system, I heard teachers saying that one soda a day is ok for kids, and my mouth dropped. I would hear things like this all the time because teachers just aren’t given the information and tools to know otherwise. Thankfully, Lynell has stepped up and the Hamilton Heart Foundation is changing the lives of our kids and helping our teachers get the material they need to successfully teach our young ones what they need to have a healthy, happy, active childhood. We are blessed to be able to partner with them and support them any way we can.

If there’s ever an opportunity that you would like The Meal Prep Company to come to, please email info@themealprepco.com ! We love spreading our knowledge of health and nutrition!
