Hello from the Nutrition office! Welcome to 2024! While your life might look different now than it did when you were younger, it’s never too late to set goals and improve yourself. These three New Year’s resolutions ideas for seniors will prove that you don’t ever have to settle for things the way they are.

1) Eat well and stay hydrated!

Your health matters now more than ever. Adding more nutrient-dense foods to your diet can help you feel better and have better energy. Focus on consuming high-fiber fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, along with nuts and low-fat dairy and leaner cuts of meat. Limit your consumption of fatty meat, sugar, butter, salt, and pre-packaged foods.

2) Move joyfully!

Find a method of movement or exercise you truly enjoy, and incorporate it into your daily habits. Physical activity is especially important for older people as it supports heart health, strengthens joints, and reduces the risk of injury from falls. (We offer some great classes here at the Gibson Center that are perfect for those new to exercise!)

3) Stay Social!

The importance of social interaction for older adults cannot be overstated. Loneliness is known as a “silent killer” of seniors. Stay connected with family members and reach out to your friends – it’s never too late to make new ones! Come and join us for a lunch, stay for a game day, join in on a trip and you’ll have a great time.

Bon Appetite! –Becky
