No matter how old you are, you can control your health.  Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is central to good nutrition.  Don’t think that you have to be at the mercy of genetics – take a bit of time to take care of yourself and you’ll experience much better health.  Pregnant women especially should pay attention to maintaining a healthy lifestyle while they’re expecting and while they’re nursing.

Here’s a look at a few things you can do to improve your chances of staying healthy and living longer.

Flossing
We don’t have to assume we’re going to lose our teeth as we get old anymore.  Simply flossing on a regular basis, having a good affordable dental plan and keeping a good relationship with your dentist can do a lot to improve your smile, and make you look and feel younger.

Whole Food Nutrition
Almost all of us take a handful of supplements daily, whether from a prescription plan or over the counter.  Keep in mind though that getting your nutrients from foods, as well as a manufactured vitamin, may give you more nutrients in better forms.  Whole food nutrition can work to keep us younger for longer.  Just make sure that your diet is complete and the food you eat is of high quality.

Avoid Smoking
Smoking can be a real problem for people who want to stay younger, longer.  We all know the major side effects of smoking – lung cancer, heart disease, and appearance related problems.  Check to see if your medical plan covers smoking cessation programs. If you want to age healthily, give up smoking by whatever means possible.
