It’s no secret that individuals today are living longer and embracing new and different activities well into their older years. Longer lives beg the question, what can be done to age well? Keeping one’s health in check with proper nutrition, physical activity, and regular checkups is typically the go-to answer. But it is also important to consider other, seemingly insignificant activities that can benefit seniors’ health. Participating in and enjoying artistic endeavors – even when if someone is not necessarily creatively inclined – can have a positive impact on health by creating a sense of purpose and keeping the mind busy.
