7) Pay Attention to Your Diet

Keeping an eye on what you eat is good life advice for anyone, not only older adults. However, it is especially important when you break from your regular working life routine, as an increase in free time and choice of activities may lead to a break from healthy eating habits. Diet has a large impact on overall health, and especially on cardiovascular and intestinal health. It is important to limit foods with high saturated fat content and excessive sugar, as a general rule, as high-fat diets are a significant cause of heart and other problems. It is also important to listen to your doctor in regard to specific diet modifications. Depending on your state of health, your doctor may recommend decreasing sodium intake or increasing vitamin intake in order to help deal with any potentially developing health issues. He or she may even recommend a probiotic in order to maintain a healthy digestive tract.
