EVANSTON, Ill., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mather LifeWays, a thought leader in providing solutions and residences for older adults, announces a recent initiative sharing research-based tips that can help people Age Well. The tips are shared on Facebook and Twitter every day Monday through Friday and identified with the hashtag #AgeWell. They cover a gamut of topics from ways to boost your brain health to steps for increasing your long-term happiness to hints for relieving stress. The information is designed for individuals and organizations to share and distribute.
People interested in improving their health—including brain health and mood—can follow the simple tips to form healthy new habits. An example: "Stuck in a mental rut? Build more vital connections between brain cells by learning something new. Try studying a foreign language to stimulate the brain in new and exciting ways."
The majority of the tips are based on research by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging, the organization's award-winning resource for research and information about wellness, aging, trends in senior living, and successful aging service innovations.
"This initiative adds a new approach to fulfilling our mission of creating ways to Age Well," says Mary Leary, CEO and President of Mather LifeWays. "It enables us to share research Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging has gathered in a form that is easy to understand and easy to implement in everyday life."
