Maintaining a positive outlook in later life can have significant benefits for our health and well-being. There have even been Ivy League university studies proving that a happy attitude about ageing could lower risk for conditions such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease, as well as loneliness and depression.

Here are five steps seniors can take to cultivate positivity and improve their overall health:

  1. Practice gratitude: One way to foster positivity is by focusing on the good things in life. Take time each day to reflect on what you're thankful for, whether it's a supportive friend or a beautiful sunset. Keeping a gratitude journal can help you remember and appreciate these blessings.

  2. Stay connected: Social connections are essential for seniors' mental and emotional health. Make an effort to stay in touch with friends and family, whether it's through phone calls, video chats, or in-person visits. At every Optima Living community, we encourage as much social time with loved ones as possible.
