I am almost 70 years old and I have no intention of slowing down. In fact, one of my goals for this coming year is to swim 70 laps in my neighborhood pool. I mention this because I believe goal setting is the first step in becoming an active senior. This belief is not unique to myself. Here at Real Health, Toni has discussed how she set goals to fit in health in between her responsibilities as a mother, a wife and a nurse. And Harold has outlined his goals as a proud baby boomer.
This video post details my goals for the next year related to nutrition, fitness and relationships. Feel free to "steal" these goals for yourself or use them as a jumping off point to think about your own goals.
In the comments section, let me know if you have any questions about setting health goals when you are a senior.
Editor's Note: Rosemary Lichtman is a life coach at Her Mentor Center, an active senior and good friend of Phyllis Goldberg, another contributor to Real Health. Rosemary posts, along with Phyllis, every Wednesday at Real Health on the topics of health and wellness for seniors, the importance of relationships to health and communicating effectively to parents and children.
