It's Never Too Late

Your life will be happier and healthier if you take control

It's never too late to take control of your choices to improve your quality of life. Make small first steps, like adding a multivitamin, then slowly making tougher changes, like quitting smoking.

The benefits of positive lifestyle changes are swift. For example, your lungs begin to heal immediately when you stop smoking. After five years, ex-smokers are no more likely to get coronary heart disease than those who never smoked. And the benefits of exercise become apparent in a few months. Make a change in your life today!

Steps on the road to healthy aging

  • Exercise.

  • Eat nutritious foods and vitamins.

  • Don't smoke.

  • Stay mentally and socially active.

  • Be safe -- that means seat belts, air bags, and fewer cell phone calls in the car, and helmets for bicycle and motorcycle riding.

  • Get cancer, heart disease, hearing, and vision screenings.

  • Seek help for unusual symptoms.

  • Take your prescriptions for problems such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
