Holistic aging, also called healthy aging, is the process of maintaining superior functional ability and overall wellness of the body, mind, and spirit, and living your best quality of life as you age.
Holistic aging programs are a set of measures or activities that help keep your body, mind, and spirit functioning at their very best and achieve maximum well-being as you get older.
As you age, your body, mind and spirit change. Coping with aging can be difficult as several changes and transitions occur; children move away, loved ones are lost, changes occur to your career, health issues can occur, loss of independence, etc.
Though it is natural to experience those changes, their effects on aging and overall health can be compensated with holistic aging programs. These programs have proven to be a key to leading a healthier, happier and longer life as they help you cope with changes during aging and advise ways to live life to the fullest.
Aging is not in your hands to control, but holistic aging certainly is by following simple activities or lifestyle changes that are affordable, agreeable and attainable. Below are some science-backed programs that have been proven to assure good physical, mental and spiritual well-being as you age.
