Reaching the golden age means so many things for many people. On the bright side, it can mean less parenting responsibilities particularly for those whose children are already working or married and have a family of their own. Some may also be looking forward to their retirement when they no longer have to work and can take longer holidays.
On the other hand, the golden age can signal health problems and issues such as menopause and changes in the cardiovascular and muscular systems. It’s at this stage when older people often experience body aches caused by bone and joint problems as well as other illnesses.
But then again, being 50 or older is no excuse not to exercise and stay fit. No matter one’s age, leading a healthy lifestyle is a must today. This means eating a balanced diet and doing regular exercise. These two should go together to ensure that you maintain a strong body that can resist diseases.
