Don’t Fight With Time… Signs Of Getting Older We Need To Focus On

Collaborative Content

It's never something that we want to think about, but, the fact is, our steady decline begins as soon as we turn 18 years old! While we've spent a lot of time trying to fight old mother time, there are always going to be signs that we are getting older in age, but what are these important signs, and is there anything we can really do to combat these?

 Our Eyesight Getting Worse

 It’s common that a lot of people have issues with their eyesight early on in life, and if you have concerns, it's always worth going to get a cataract examination, or visit an optician, just to make sure that everything is checked. The vast majority of the time, especially when you're younger, is that you will require reading glasses. But, with a lot of eyesight issues, we can actually try to fix them ourselves. There are things we can do to exercise our eyes. There are numerous resources online to help us with this, but sometimes, you may find that you've gone to an optician for a checkup, and your minor eyesight problems have actually fixed themselves. In which case, you've got a pair of reading glasses to help you read if you are feeling a little bit tired!

 Our Mental Health 

A very important thing to talk about now is our mental health. We don't always feel inclined to tell everybody about how we are feeling, but it's more common in those that have reached retirement age, that they can begin to feel isolated. But, this is not to say that we aren't all prone to a few moments of mental health issues ourselves. We need to recognize our own individual triggers. Maybe stress and anxiety are two things you have a predilection towards, in which case, finding positive outlets, whether through friends or family members, or taking that opportunity to step back from life and do the things that you know are good for your mental health, are very important to maintaining our overall sense of sanity. This is something that we can ignore because the pressures of modern life are too much to bear sometimes. As we get older, we begin to appreciate the quieter moments in life. When we're in our 20s and 30s, we see everyone else around this going at a million miles an hour and we feel we have to do the same. But, be sure to trust your instincts, and to listen to your gut. Because you may be doing something that's not particularly healthy for you.

 Our Physical Health

 As sure as eggs is eggs, our physical health begins to decline, and this isn't just in terms of whether we eat a bad diet or not, as we get older, things become a little bit more difficult to do. But, it doesn't need to be this way. Instead, by keeping an eye on our own physical health, and taking positive steps to fix this as soon as possible, we can live a long and happy life with minimal issues. Of course, everybody talks about exercise being important, but a lot of people feel that they have to exercise 7 days a week in order to maintain some semblance of physical strength. This isn't the case, and in fact, you can actually exercise too much, and put yourself in a physical deficit. We seem to have the opinion that we have to rely on walking sticks after a certain time in our lives, but this isn't the case. The fact is that muscle is something that can regenerate itself if we give it the right nutrients and stimulus. A lot of people who have suffered accidents have been able to rebuild their strength with resistance exercises and weight training. The important thing to know is what is best for you. Generally, weight training is a very good way for us to keep our strength up, but we need to supplement it with the right nutrition. As we get older, calcium is drawn out of our bones, so, we need to ensure that we are taking the best supplements possible to combat any physical deterioration. We have to accept that physical deterioration is part of getting older; we don't need to think that as soon as we turned 60, we're going to need a wheelchair to get around!

 That Existential Dread 

There are milestones in our lives where we are reminded of our own mortality. Maybe friends pass away, or we lose loved ones, and this can result in an existential crisis of sorts. But it's important to gain a sense of clarity, but this is something that we can't do without gaining life experience. The best defense in this respect is to find ways to reduce our own stress. There are so many different ways for us to recognize how we are feeling anxious, but it's a part of life that we feel concerned about getting older. But we view getting older as a negative thing; because it seems that we are in a permanent state of decline. Yes, we are, but are we going to spend the rest of our lives worrying about it, or are we going to embrace this, and use the things that we actually develop as we get older, such as our intelligence? It is a part of getting older, and maybe we end up going to more funerals and weddings, and everyone around us is getting pregnant, but we all feel that as we get older, that our life is slowly beginning to tick away. It's a big cliché, but it's all about being in the moment, and embracing what we have now. Our life is what we make it. There are people that we know who are constantly in a negative frame of mind, and then there are others who are totally positive, and we can take one of two options, so which one is it going to be? Getting older is inevitable, but we need to reframe our own attitudes towards it. Yes, there are numerous signs we are getting older, such as our physical decline, mental health issues, and being worried about the fact we're getting older, but, life is what you make it. So maybe it's not worth focusing on those couple of wrinkles, and actually burrowing deep into ourselves to think about what is actually important in life.

4 Health Checkups That Everybody Needs

Nobody likes going to the doctors and most of us just end up putting it off until there’s something seriously wrong with you. But the best way to stay on top of your health is to catch problems early when they’re easily treatable and they’re not likely to turn into something more serious. That’s why regular checkups with the doctor are so important, especially as you start to get older. These are the health checkups that everybody needs to be getting.

Hearing Tests 

People don’t think about hearing problems until they get older. They think that they’re a health issue that only affects pensioners but that’s not true. You’re never too young to have hearing problems so it’s worth getting them checked every couple of years. People don’t often think about how difficult hearing problems can be to live with but if you need a hearing aid and you haven’t got one, you’re going to struggle to get by in social situations. Even though you might not like the idea of getting your ears checked and wearing a hearing aid, it’s far better than the alternative.

Heart Problems 

Heart disease is one of the biggest killers and it’s often caused by lifestyle factors. Not eating well, smoking, and drinking too much can all cause problems with the heart. You can reverse a lot of the damage and cut your chances of getting heart disease if you change those lifestyle choices. However, you’re not going to know if you’re at risk unless you see cardiovascular specialists and get your heart checked out. The longer you leave it before you get checked, the more damage you’re going to do to your heart so don’t put it off anymore.

Body Mass Index 

Keeping an eye on your weight is always important but people often don’t realize that they’ve got a problem. You can be overweight and at risk even if you don’t look particularly large. Being overweight causes all sorts of health issues ranging from diabetes to heart disease so it’s essential that you know whether you’re a healthy weight or not. Your body mass index will give you a better idea of your weight and any potential health problems that it might cause. Go to the doctor and ask them to weigh you and give you a figure for your body mass index. They’ll be able to tell you then whether you’re at risk of any serious health problems due to your weight.

Dental Checkups 

Dental checkups get forgotten more than any other health checkup because people simply don’t think that it’s as important. While it’s true that you’re not going to get any life threatening health issues if you skip out on visits to the dentist, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bother. Tooth decay is still incredibly painful and if it gets too bad, you’ll have to have teeth removed. That’s going to be a lot more expensive than getting a simple checkup so you’re best to be safe.

Going to the doctor is never fun but if you want to avoid developing any serious health problems, you need to get these checkups on a regular basis.

Questions to Ask Before Having Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is popular with all types of people these days, but this is not the type of decision which you should enter into lightly.

Plastic Surgery

Collaborative Content

After all, there are all sorts of potential ramifications involved in making a decision such as this one, and you need to make sure that you have thought through all the consequences before you consult with a plastic surgeon. So, to help you out in this area, here are just a few of the top questions which you need to ask yourself before entering into a decision like this.

What Does the Procedure Entail?

Just because you know what the procedure is, it doesn’t mean that you know exactly what you will be going through. So, you should read into more detail about what is going to happen, what the expected results are going to be, and some of the consequences which could arise as a result of this surgery. After all, there are always going to be risks involved, and it helps if you know exactly what they are before embarking down this particular path. If you are currently in the consultation phase, you can ask the questions directly to the medical professional to get the kind of answers which you are looking for.

What Are You Hoping to Gain?

People tend to approach plastic surgery with the aim of gaining something, so you should be honest with yourself about exactly what this is. Perhaps you are looking for an improvement in your self-esteem. Maybe it is the relief of the anxiety which a particular body part has always caused you. But as well as what you can gain, you should also think about the limitations of the procedure. After all, confidence and self-esteem come from other sources as well as what is on the outside.

What is the Cost?

Undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment tends to be quite expensive, so you need to ensure that you have properly budgeted for it. Maybe you have set up your own savings account to pay for the surgery. Perhaps there are other areas of your life which you will have to make cutbacks on in order to achieve the results that you are after. There is no point in having any procedures unless you are certain that they are not going to plunge you into any sort of financial difficulties.

Have You Thought About Recovery Time?

Recovery Time

After you have had the surgery, it may be the case that you need days or weeks to recover. So, you need to take this into account when it comes to going down this particular path. Ultimately, your best course of action is to do plenty of pre-planning which will account for any after-effects on the procedures which you have chosen to have.

Only you can decide whether plastic surgery is the path for you, and these are just a few of the questions which will help you in your decision-making process.

Breakfast Diabetic Chit Chat

Good morning readers! I hope your day is going well as we move slowly to the weekend. My week have been somewhat fine. Several weeks ago I was diagnosed as a diabetic, which kind of through me off a bit, but I did have a feeling I might of had it due to being overweight and the way I was feeling. I really don't know how long I had it , but was glad I went to the doctor finally to get checked out.

I'm taking my health very serious now and I'm eating smaller portions, I cut out bread, rice potatoes and such. Mornings sometimes I have 2 scrambled eggs in olive oil, sometimes oatmeal. Dinner usually is baked chicken and veggies. I tell you it's a struggle for me at time to take medication everyday. Before I didn't eat breakfast, but now it's a lifestyle I must keep up. I'm also losing weight, I've lost 20 pounds. I weighed 350 now down to 329.6 and feeling proud. I just want to get out of the 300's and get to a more healthier weight and start feeling good. It's hard trying to find food to help level out my sugar, but I'm learning because this is new to me. Anyway you guys have a good day!
