Staying mentally and physically active can help keep you, well, younger — particularly in your 60s, when you’re just getting used to the idea that the reading glasses and wrinkles are here to stay. So what can you expect this decade? Everyone ages differently, and lifestyle plays a major role, but you’ll experience both hard-to-notice and impossible-to-miss changes in your physical and mental health.
The risk of being afflicted with chronic diseases increases significantly so taking care of your health goals becomes even more important now than ever before. Your routine health care should be to maintain a good relationship with your Primary Care Practitioner (PCP). Lifestyle adjustments at this time can and do make a difference in your overall health. Make screening for diseases a priority, and assess your risk for medical problems and mental health issues.
