5 Tips for 50s:

See the world, and exercise, too. Traveling for work or pleasure shouldn’t derail your healthy habits. Physical therapists can suggest exercises you can do on the go, anywhere.

Bone up on your bone health. Menopause contributes to increased loss of bone density, making bones more brittle and prone to breaking. The older you get, the more important it becomes to get the recommended amount of calcium and vitamin D, and perform weight-bearing or resistance exercises 30-60 minutes at least 3 times per week.

Be active every day. The older you get, the more important it becomes to be vigilant about your health. Each week, you want 2.5 hours of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, 1.25 hours of vigorous-intensity activity, or an equivalent combination of the two. The best way to do that is to strive for activity every day.

Get a second opinion. People in their 50s often experience the first major signs of aging. If you've tried to manage your health on your own thus far, now is the time to get off of the Internet and in front of a physical therapist, who can provide an expert assessment of your health that will be key to your ability to maintain your independence.
