Health Niggles You Can Banish Forever

As we grow older, we can develop a few too many aches and niggles that we can’t seem to shift. Whereas before, you could recover from a muscle strain caused by the treadmill at the gym in a couple of days, it might now be taking a couple of weeks. Ageing, while a little scary, also brings with it health related issues. Fortunately, most of these are not serious, but they can develop into something chronic. You need to make sure that you try and banish these niggles forever.

Bad Back
Doctors surgeries across the world are full of people with bad backs, and the chances are that most of these individuals are over the age of thirty. Bad backs tend to develop with age. They can be acute, brought on by sudden trauma, or they could have developed over time through poor posture or repetitive strain. If you have a bad back, don’t just pop painkillers in the hope that it will go away. Instead, consider enrolling in a yoga class. This exercise is no longer solely in the realm of hippies. Yoga is actually prescribed by doctors to help patients with back pain and muscle strains. Yoga will allow you to learn a range of postures and breathing exercises that will strengthen your core and lessen your pain.

Your Hearing
Are you noticing an increase in the number of times you have to ask someone to repeat something or is the volume of your TV set increasing? If you feel like your hearing is getting poor, it’s time to learn more about the sorts of hearing tests you can undertake. An audiologist will test your hearing using a range of exercises and then decide whether you need a hearing aid. These devices are no longer the big bulky over the ear pieces of kit. They can be discrete and hidden from view so no one would ever know that you were wearing one. This can be ideal for the self conscious and means that you don’t have to worry about people gawping at you when at work.

Mental Health
While you might not be able to banish your anxiety or stress forever, there are ways you can learn to manage your mental health more effectively. Get enrolled in a mindfulness course and learn how to retrain your thought processes so that you are more positive, happy and live for the moment. You don’t always have to think about negative scenarios in the future that may not even happen. Talk to your friends and use the support network that you have around you. Go out for dinner, mix up your routine and do something new.

Changing up your routine can help you make new friends and extend your social circle. You can also do something you've always wanted to have a go at whether this is salsa dancing, cake decorating or learning the ukelele. Your mind will focus on more positive things and leave you with less time to worry.

Getting older doesn’t mean having to put up with health woes. Follow this guide and banish your niggles for good.
