The secret to a long and happy life doesn’t lie solely in good genes – the choices we make daily have a profound impact on our wellbeing too! Here are some key healthy habits that we encourage our residents and clients at Bankstown City Aged Care to adopt:

Balanced Diet
Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein provides the body with essential nutrients to function optimally.

Regular Exercise
Physical activity is crucial for maintaining strength, flexibility and balance. It also helps to manage weight, reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease and it also improves mood.

Stress Management
Stress can wreak havoc on our physical and mental health. Practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breath exercises or listening to calm music can help with managing stress and improve overall wellbeing.

Engage Your Mind
Just like the body, the mind needs exercise to stay sharp. Keeping the mind active through puzzles, reading, learning a new skill or participating in discussions can hep to improve cognitive function.

By focusing on these healthy habits, you can improve your overall health and wellbeing, fostering a longer and happier life.
