It’s important to keep a careful eye on our health throughout life. But it’s especially important as we age and our bodies change and evolve.
You’re caring for a loved one. But are you providing that same level of care for yourself?
Our team at Qualicare Newmarket want to share some insight on how you can protect your health as you age.
Take Positive Steps Toward Better Health
Are you a smoker? If so, now is a perfect time to quit smoking for your health. Not only can smoking cessation help protect your health, it can also help improve the health of those around you.
And while it might be hard at first, in the end, quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health. Especially since when you quit smoking, you can also lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and stroke, helping to add years to your life.
Take other steps toward good health by exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, limiting your alcohol intake and getting plenty of sleep.
Regular health screenings can also help add years to your life. Sickness isn’t the only reason you need to make a visit to the doctor.
In fact, wellness checks when you feel fine can help improve your health, as they give you time to discuss healthy habits you need to adopt, as well as health screeningsand vaccinations you need at certain ages.
If it’s been more than a year since your last wellness check, that’s too long! Schedule an appointment today and carve out time to ensure your health is in top shape.
