1.Regular medical check-ups
Your father or grandfather may boast of being the faster runner during their college days. But this does not change the fact that we can avoid old age. As we grow old, our physical capabilities decrease with age. Thus it is important to consider opting for regular medical examinations to avoid something grave and serious. So don’t make the mistake of avoiding them because of laziness, denial, or just plain irritation of being diagnosed. Make it a point to pass this habit of keeping track of their health to every member of the family from the youngest child to the elderly to ward off any serious health hazard.
2. Eat on time
This is especially for those members of the family who tend to neglect their meal in order to cater to their busy schedule at the office or at home. In our quest to have that extra bit of sleep or to reach office on time we tend to skip food to compensate for the time lost. Gradually this becomes a regular habit when breakfasts are left out on the table and lunch becomes a hasty bite on junk food. Break this bad habit immediately and instill a sense of eating on time in your children from their school years. Also, make sure that the working members of the family remember to eat on time. This simple lifestyle change can take care of most health problems that happen due to busy work schedules.

Engage in physical activities like exercises, yoga, cycling, swimming etc to keep your body in shape to tackle stress, workload and keep age-related illness like diabetes, Alzheimer’s at bay. Though it is hard to juggle work, family and physical activity, still setting a healthy example is a good start for your kids. It is likely that they will follow your footsteps. Set aside a day during the weekend to indulge in some activities that you and your family can enjoy together like swimming in the summer, hiking in the winter or biking in the spring.
4. Take vacations
