Health Tip: Wellness for Older Adults

(HealthDay News) -- Living a healthy lifestyle can impact both your lifespan and quality of life, says the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

But regardless of your age, the NIDDK emphasizes that it is never too late to be good to your mind and body.

The agency encourages older adults to:

  • Eat breakfast every day.
  • Select high-fiber foods.
  • Have three daily servings of vitamin D-fortified low-fat or fat-free dairy.
  • Drink plenty of water or water-based fluids.
  • Fit physical activity into your life.
  • Stay connected with family, friends and your community.
