Health Tip: How Can I Manage Stress on The Aging Journey?
Mindfulness is a way of thinking that brings thoughts not to the future or to the past, but instead to the present moment. Mindfulness has a variety of positive benefits including decrease in stress, reduced markers for inflammation (risk factors for cancer and heart disease), improved sleeping habits, reductions in memory and an overall decrease in loneliness.
You can add mindfulness to your daily life by:
- Taking a few long, deep breaths throughout the day
- Making time for prayer and meditation
- Stretching to help bring awareness to your physical body.
With a few simple techniques, you can make mindfulness part of your healthy aging journey.
