Whether you’re an Arizona retiree or an active adult who’s always out and about, you know the importance of how health impacts the quality of your life. In fact, according to a 2014 study in the journal Health Affairs, those 65 and older spent about $18,424 per person on personal health care, “about three times more than the average working-age adult and about five times more than the average child.” And with the number of senior citizens on the rise (they make up over 13 percent of the overall population) healthy living has become even more important standard of living for the aging population.

Thankfully, at any age, there are lifestyle habits we can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve our health. These habits may also help to keep our brains healthy as we age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline. That’s why I’m excited to tell you about the Sun City Healthy Habits for a Healthier You Workshop on Wednesday, October 28th at 10:00 a.m. at the Sun City Branch Library located at 16828 N. 99th Ave; Sun City.

This free workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits that are associated with healthy aging: Cognitive activity; Physical health and exercise; Diet and nutrition; Social engagement. RSVP is required at 602.528.0545 and more information can be found here. The Healthy Habits for a Healthier You Workshop is recommended for anyone interested in looking for information on ways to age as well as possible so spread the word and bring a friend or two. Because the best way to enjoy retired living is when you’re at your absolute healthiest!
