Be active, both physically and mentally. Read every day, walk every day

.

Avoid sitting home alone day after day.

If you can’t get out due to health restrictions, invite people to come and visit. Sometimes people need to be “invited” because they don’t want to drop by unannounced.



Prioritize having a social life no matter where you live or how you feel.

You don’t have to have numerous social events on the calendar. Any time that you are with other people is a social event. Looking forward to getting together with friends and family is part of the fun. Remember, being with other people is good for your health.



Be a planner.

Every day plan some activity that will allow you to talk to other people--in person if possible. If you have the mobility, go to a shopping mall and chat with people who work in the store. Shopping, even window shopping, is a good way to strike up a conversation about products and items in front of you.



Try new ways of meeting people.

Join a book club, a card group, church choir or volunteer at a local hospital, shelter or food pantry. Anything you can think of that gets you out of the house and enjoying the world around you is a benefit to healthy aging.
