Tracing your family roots or ancestry – the study of genealogy – ranks in the top 30 of the world’s most popular hobbies.* Many seniors enjoy jumping on popular ancestry websites to create their family trees, track down distant relatives, and discover fascinating lore about where they came from.
People with a sunny outlook enjoy better mental and physical health, and they are generally more resilient in coping with challenges and setbacks. Studies show that an optimistic attitude helps to protect the heart, reduces stress and anxiety, and boosts immunity. Accentuating the positive is also good for brain health, lifts mood, increases longevity and improves sleep.

A balanced diet of nutrient-dense, whole foods nourishes and supports the mental, emotional, and physical health of older adults. The latest research shows that foods rich in vitamin K protect the heart, eating plenty of fruits helps prevent diabetes, and fermented foods are gut friendly. A Mediterranean-style diet improves mood, nuts and berries boost brain health, and anti-inflammatory foods lower cortisol and reduce stress.
Maintaining, expanding, or deepening social connections in your daily life can help to prevent or ease depression and anxiety, protect your heart, and strengthen your immune system. Studies show that strong social ties and support also boost brain health and may reduce the risk of dementia, lower the risk of physical disability, and are associated with greater longevity.
