WELLNESS TIPS FOR ACTIVE OLDER ADULTS

Breathe: Try a meditation or yoga class.
Think Positive: Positive thinking provides a longer life span.
Have Fun: Read a book, garden, take a walk, sing a song and do what you like.
Build Resilience: How you handle challenges enable you to enjoy life.
Exercise: Daily exercise should be part of your routine.  Exercise reduces stress and can boost your mood!
Socialize: Spend time with friends and family, a gold buddy, travel companion or gaming partner.
Complete a Daily Task: Completing a task, even a small one, can bring a sense of accomplishment.
Stop Worrying: Constant worrying is harmful to your health; work on positive thinking.
