Phone 329-0712 i i i Life after 65 Keeping in shape is important you have a regular physical checkup, exercise Fifth of Ten Articles By JACK GOURLAY You can enjoy your later years in good health if you prepare for it well enough in advance This is essential, for after age 65, the way you feel will largely determine the way you live Few diseases are exclusive to old age, although with advancing years, chances of contracting a chronic disease increase. Today, two of every three Americans age 45 to 65 have one or more chronic diseases. The ratio jumps to four out of five over age 65. Most often, the fault is ours We tend to ignore symptoms when they appear earlier. Our lifelong habits also must share some of the blame. Years of abuse of the lungs with cigarette smoking, for example, is blamed for a serious deterioration in later years. Inadequate diets over a period of years can also lead to serious organic complications later on. Everyone 40 years or older should have a regular yearly physical examination, for two important reasons. It can any disease you may have, and it can serve to teach you your limitations. Once you know these, life may be easier, since you can, with your physician's guidance, learn to live with them intelligently. A regular visit to your WeeWhimsv sern Jhe original m tor Irs goott dentist every six months is just as important The condition of your teeth, and your ability to chew your food have a direct bearing on your general health Another key to enjoyment of life after 65 is activity. Use your body, exercise regularly, and you'll have a healthier old age. But, recognize your limitations Discuss exercise with your doctor Find out what is permitted, and then don't overdo it. Most of us, middle age or older, fear we are in the midst of a great physical decline. Fear of a possible loss of "manliness" becomes obsessive. Women fear a loss of "attractiveness" and becoming "less of a woman Many men and women encountering this traumatic psychological upheave! look outside the home for an affair, to bolster their shattered egos. The usual results are severe feelings of guilt, emotional conflicts, and the breaking up of marital relationships which might have been wonderfully satisfactory and fulfilling for many years. According to the study, "Aging and Society." physical capacity for sexual performance persists at least into the 70s and 80s. And many gerontologists believe that sexual activity is highly beneficial to older people Clyde E Martin. of the Gerontology Research Center al the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, points out. based on research involving 700 older people, marned people who enjoy a good sexual relationship with their spouse live longer than single, divorced, or even widowed people. Conclusion- sexual activity can not only add to the enjoyment of your nights, but it also can add to the number of your days. Exercise is essential for good digestion and circulation, and is very important in determining your ability to relax The exercise standing highest on most doctors' lists walking A good, brisk walk, taken regularly, out-of-doors, promotes restful sleep and helps to control weight and relieve tensions It firms the body and leg muscles and keeps the complexion clear Jogging is also recommended by many heart specialists as a way to improve fitness, ward off heart attack, and improve blood circulation throughout the body Swimming is also excellent for most older people. Excellent, that is, if you stroke hard enough to puff and breathe deeply Deep breathing is the key. Swimming's benefits are similar to those of walking and jogging for good muscle tone, improved circulation and increased lung capacity Basically, exercise, no matter what form it takes, simply means using the body, keeping it in motion. There is a direct connection between exercise and well- being, and regular exercise, with proper periods of rest, is one of the most important measures you can take. It is a highly individual matter, and only your doctor can really prescribe the correct form and amount of exercise suitable for you, in your condition. If you are like most of us, you've been going at such a fast clip that you may have forgotten how to relax and take it easy. Now is the time to relearn Once you do, and checkup, exercise moderately, watch your diet, you'll notice a remarkable improvement in your health and your outlook on life Next: Your Mental Health.
