I hate to burst your bubble, but 50 is definitely NOT the new 30; it’s the new 50!

I hate to burst your bubble, but 50 is definitely NOT the new 30; it’s the new 50! There seems to be this stigma around the number 50, and many people associate it with being old or “washed up”, which is definitely not the case. How a person cares for themselves in their earlier years (like their 30s) will greatly determine how he or she feels once they turn the big 5-0.

According to an article by Brain MD, Americans are among the unhealthiest groups, mainly due to the food we consume on a daily basis. It’s no secret that a lot of American food is highly processed, consists of fats, and is full of artificial colors and sweeteners.

Combine that with a sedentary lifestyle and stress, and it makes sense why so many people dread turning half a century, as they may be plagued with many of the aftereffects of living an unhealthy life.

Folks 50 and up often face health conditions, such as:

To help combat these conditions, there are a number of things a person can do to feel their best at the age of 50, including:

  • Getting regular exercise
  • Having a healthy diet
  • Keeping stress levels low
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Seeing your doctor once or twice a year
  • Getting regular blood work done
  • Receiving full-body massages 
  • Getting chiropractic adjustments
  • Keeping your mind sharp with reading, puzzles, etc.

A person’s 50’s is not the beginning of the end; it’s a new beginning overall! It’s an exciting time in your life to become the healthiest version of yourself. 50 is the new 50, and you have ample time to live your life to the fullest!

What changes will you be making to your lifestyle?
