Keep a Healthy Mind

Mental Wellness is just as important as keeping your body healthy. Engaging in activities that challenge your brain, such as reading, puzzles, or learning a new hobby, can help maintain cognitive function and reduce the risk of falls. Staying socially active and seeking support if you’re feeling stressed or anxious can also contribute to good mental health, which is crucial for overall well-being. 

Fuel your Body

Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential for maintaining good health. Including foods that are rich in calcium and vitamin D, which are important for bone health, can help prevent falls. Avoiding excessive alcohol consumption and reducing the intake of sugary or processed foods can also positively impact your health and lower the risk of falls.
