Aging is a normal progression of life. As you age, your body may not be able to do many things that it used to do. However, it does not mean that the quality of your life has to suffer. There are many things that you can do to make sure that you enjoy your retirement years. Read the following article for some suggestions.

Work with some weights to keep yourself looking younger. A toned body is a young body no matter what the chronological age may say. Working with the appropriate weights for your health will help you keep your body toned and looking fit, which will take years off of your body and soul.

One of the hardest things to manage for the person who is aging and for those around him or her is dementia. If someone you love, has dementia be as patient as possible with them. Often, they don’t know the severity of their own condition. To help your own spirits, take their dementia as a mercy, as it must be hard to die having all your memories intact.

Research supplements that are proven to help with aging and take them as instructed. As you age, your body’s nutritional requirements change. Look for supplements that are specific to your current age and needs. Talk with a doctor if you have questions over what your needs may be. The doctor can lead you on the right path to make sure you are getting the proper nutritional supplements in your life.

Eat lots and lots of vegetables to slow the aging process and keep young. Evidence suggests that the damage from metabolism and toxins contribute to oxidative damage at a cellular level. There are many vegetables that are high in antioxidants which will protect the body from the oxidative stress of not eating right.

Surround yourself with positive people. Grumpy, grouchy people are hard to be around and can affect both your mood and your health. Weed out the negativity by distancing yourself from those who cause you unnecessary stress or heartache. You’ve come much too far to let others pull you down with their nonsense.

As you can see, your retirement years can be enriching and fulfilling, depending on how you take care of yourself and what activities you engage in. Try some of the things mentioned in this article. You might be surprise to find out that these years can be the best years in your life.

    I had laminectomy in 2006 which helped me ease my leg pain but the back pain and associated problems did not go. Three years after a Neusurgeon has suggested 1 level fusion operation.

    I have 3 kids and a lovely wife and i am very confused to go for or just live in pain for rest of my life. Genuine help will be great. Thanks

    At age 6-10 I had this problem and I couldn’t control my mind, and I would constantly make up arguments between two parts of my mind and i would go on in agony and couldn’t control it.

    Now it’s worse…I have these uncontrollable thoughts about beating up innocent people, planning a new life, talking to someone across the room in my mind…and I eventually stop myself somehow…but sometimes I can’t control it and some thoughts make my heart ache about how horrible it is…

    Is this normal? What can I do to control and be at peace with my mind? Is something wrong with me? I have no clue…

    I live in Texas, for now. My boyfriend, and I are high school sweethearts. We have been dating for 3 years and 2 months, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps on October 4, 2012. I love and support this decision 100 percent, and I will be there for everything. There was a lot that led up to and went into the decision of us living a military lifestyle. I’m not going to get into the details too much, our relationships with our families aren’t what we want them to be. I live at home with my parents and brother, my boyfriend lives with his brother. He and I are best friends, and despite our age have been through a tremendous amount together. We are in love and getting stronger everyday.He has enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He is such an amazing man, we have planned on getting married at some point for about a year. He told me that one of the main reasons he decided to enlist in the Marine Corps was because he wants to be able to give me a good loving life and to be able to support our future children. We are so excited! At MEPS earlier this month they wrote his “official” ship out date way March 4, 2012, but later came back to say that that was probably not the day and it will be, but before then. He came home from PT with his recruiter and the other poole’s last week and told me that Srgt. and his superiors think that he will actually be shipping out in early December. He also informed me that we probably wouldn’t know more than a month before and usually it is about a weeks notice. Which would mean we would be getting married in about April…not long to plan a wedding.Our plan for the time we have left it just to enjoy our time and each other. We have been going out and hanging out with friends, going places together and trying to spend time with each other. We have been together our entire adult lives, and that adds some challenges to our relationship. He and I used to fight frequently, but one day we decided that when we are angry with on another that we would talk it out. Our relationship has never been better, we are so in love with each other. We went to our first “BIG” work party together and we had a blast together. When we stopped fighting and started talking we increased our communication exponentially. We enjoy being together, miss each other constantly, we laugh more, and are overall just more in love than ever. We know that when he leaves for bootcamp that it is going to be very  difficult on not only us as a couple but as individuals too. We talked and decided that I will be his first phone call and letter when he gets the privilege to do so. I plan to write him very often, I want him to stay in the loop with what’s happening here and I want him to know how proud of him I am and how much I love him. I know that he will not get to call me as soon or as often as I would like. We know that it won’t be all gumdrops and unicorns but we know we can make it through this, and that we will only be stronger because of it. Srgt. told us a few days ago when we found out that he got the Aviation Mechanic job that he wanted, which I know nothing about, school is in Florida for about a year and then our “permanent” duty station would probably be California. California is what we would prefer.I can’t wait for my life with my future Marine and future husband begin. To all other military men, women, girlfriends wives, etc. thank you for your service and your sacrifice.Please give me any advice you have. I have been doing research, but nothing beats having people who can relate share their stories. I am very interested in anything you can tell me about aviation mechanic’s in the Marine Corps, Pensacola Florida, marriage advice and things along those lines. 

              Thank you friends,

    Hiran, he has brain skills. He was 10th in a class of almost 700. He doesn’t want to fight. He wants to work on helicopters, what they do with them is out of his hands.(He will willing fight if needed, though)

    Hello everyone. My name is David & I am 20 years old. A week ago yesterday, me & a friend were shooting his new .380 hangun. I took 3 shots without ear protection, though it was outside (indoors reflect sound waves much more). After this, I had no ringing in my ears, but a ‘stuffy’ feeling. In the past six months, I’ve also shot a .40S&W handgun about 9 times with no ear protection, which left me no ringing, or ‘stuffy’ feeling.

    Wednesday evening when I got home, I got to reading & it seemed like my hearing got worse with each article I read. I think it was Friday (after doing more reading) that I’d noticed a ringing or ‘whine’ in my ears. My fears turned towards Tinnitus. Ever since I’ve read the word “Tinnitus” the past few days have been torturous. Now, I’m curious as to if this really is Tinnitus, or ear sensitivity after shooting. The ‘whine’ is hard to explain. It isn’t a constant tone, it’s like.. The more I focus in & try to ‘hear it’ it may ‘radiate’ if that makes any sense what so ever. It’s as if when I ‘listen’ for it, it may make a 2 second burst of ‘whine’ and then subside, but the moment I turn attention towards it, BANG there it is. It’s almost so high in frequency that I can’t hear it, but I feel the sensitivity in my ears when it happens. If I clench my teeth VERY tight I can hear it also, but mostly when I open my jaw up very wide. Chewing food does not trigger it.

    I’ve also noticed things like Lawnmowers make my ears sensitive since this occurance, along with car brakes & a buzzing light I heard in the hospital today (My mom has cancer, God knows the stress isn’t helping in my situation). I’m just finding it hard to believe a few gunshots could have cost me permanent Tinnitus (Although anythings possible, the more I’ve read it seems prolonged exposure to excessive decibel levels is the likely cause in that situation). I have an appointment with an ear doctor next week, to find out what’s going on & to have a check up, but I think I’m going to cancel & find a good audiologist or specialist to see to make sure my hearing, and overall hearing health are ok. All I am trying to do is gain some peace-of-mind & comfort in hopes of being able to relax. I’ve cut down on music almost completely, & have been trying to remain in silence (Maybe if I let my ears relax & take time to heal it will subside & go away).

    God Bless anyone who reads & answers this question. I’m having a hard enough time dealing with stress & anxiety than having to worry about having Tinnitus for the rest of my life at age 20. Thank you. Today seems better than Yesterday. Thanks everyone.
