Heart And Health Tips For Men Over 60

June 3, 2021

June is Men’s Health Month, and the older you get, the more vigilant you should be about improving your heart and health overall. For men over 60, it may mean making some slight alterations to the lifestyle changes you’ve already made.

Men at this stage of life may have the luxury of choosing between continued advancement in their chosen career fields, an exciting second career, retirement or semi-retirement. But these changes don’t mean that you should give up pursuing a healthy heart. In fact, it’s even more important to keep eating well and exercising.

You probably won’t be able to reach the treadmill’s top speed like you did in your 20s, but the good news is that you don’t even need to try. Just maintaining an active lifestyle will provide a number of heart and health benefits.

Spending at least 30 minutes a day, six days a week, in some form of purposeful exercise will do the trick. That could mean walking or jogging (on the treadmill, in the neighborhood, or on a local track), playing a sport such as tennis or golf, or working out on a resistance machine set to accommodate your level of strength.

No matter what decade of life you find yourself in, physical heart health is both important and achievable. Don’t allow the duties and demands of any life stage to rob your heart of the care it deserves. Whether you’re a single 20-something or a grandfather, now is the right time to establish a healthy heart lifestyle.
