1. Get moving

Exercise regularly to maintain a healthy body and brain.

2. Stay social

Take a class, volunteer, play games, see old friends, and make new ones.

3. Bulk up

Eat beans and other high-fiber foods for digestive and heart health.

4. Add some spice

Add herbs and spices to your meals if medications dull your taste buds.

5. Stay balanced

Practice yoga or tai chi to improve agility and prevent falls.

Brisk daily walks this September can bolster both your heart and lungs.

Talk to a sleep specialist if you don’t sleep soundly through the night.
