Healthy Aging

 
 
Our inaugural @walkwithadoc went better than I expected!! A wonderful opportunity to walk with friends, family, patients and colleagues.  In honor of healthy aging month we discussed tips for how to change our outlook and age without feeling old.  Interestingly, tips on healthy aging are universal and applicable regardless of age.
 
Exercise
Smile often
Live with gratitude
Be fearless
Eat close to the ground
Get enough sleep
Foster relationships
Prevention
 
Join me at Ridges Specialty Care Center in Burnsville, MN the 1st Saturday of every month for a free health talk.  October is breast cancer awareness month and we will be discussing how exercise effects your breast cancer risk.  Come, listen and walk at your own pace!
