Happy Healthy Aging Month!
Written By: Alexis DAscenzo, UIC Dietetic Intern, CPT


Well, fall is definitely in full swing now and so is Healthy Aging Month! So what exactly is Healthy Aging Month? This September is all about reinventing yourself, and it is designed to focus national atten­tion on the pos­i­tive aspects of grow­ing older.  Yes, positive!

          Many people associate growing older as a bad thing, but honestly that assumption is quite the opposite. And personally in my opinion, age is just a number. So keeping that in mind, this month challenge yourself to do something NEW either big or small because it is never too late to discover a new hobby or passion to improve your phys­i­cal, men­tal, social, or finan­cial well being. Remember this quote when you begin to reinvent yourself this month
             “the only things we regret in life are the things we did chose not to do".
