Active Adults are living the new Sunrise Years!

Today, it’s doubtful that even Whistler’s Mother could be sedentary and happy just rocking away in a rocking chair. Today, Seniors are more aptly described at Active Adults and enjoy Active Adult Living!
Active Adult Living Grace Pointe
You’re more likely to find Senior Active Adults at the gym, taking ballroom dance lessons, going on nature hikes and exercise themed cruises and meetups.

When Nike said, “Just Do It”, it seems that many Seniors have taken that advice to heart!
Face it. You may be 55+, you may even be retired, but you’re not one to rest on your laurels of a life well lived. You want physical and mental stimulation. You want to be involved with your community and enjoy the fellowship and community life with like-minded active Seniors! That’s what we are all about at Grace Pointe!
Of course, you’ll still juggle the myriad of family commitments, keeping up with cell phone texts and messages from family and friends, celebrating friends and family birthdays, holidays and more. You also want time for YOUR self-development and progress.
“Studies have shown that people, who stay connected and feel needed, who are personally fulfilled, stand a better chance of leading a long and healthy life.”

The current generation of older people will need more than mall walks, board, games and computer skills. Tai Chi and massage therapy may not be enough. Think exercise themed cruises, gym memberships, walking and running clubs, community college classes and lots of dancing.

Think, “Rejuvenation, Rejoicing, and Renewal”

At Grace Pointe, we appreciate the focus that the new 55+ Active Adult and Senior generation has on their future and happiness. We are here to accommodate your desires to have the best ‘sunrise years’ experience available in the Oklahoma Active Adult Living community! Let’s connect and explore the opportunities!

Keep Your Cool This Summer at Grace Pointe Living

Staying Cool As An Active Adult in Oklahoma

Getting older has many benefits and it also has some drawbacks, just like many things in life.

Active Adults Staying Cool
Living in a hot climate definitely presents challenges to Seniors. Let’s remember that older active adults need to focus on issues of getting too hot, overheated and possible heat stroke!
As we get older, our bodies don’t adjust to the extreme climate and temperature changes as when we were younger. Seniors who are active adults also find themselves dehydrated as their default body state in many instances.
Did you know that 40% of the heat-induced injuries and heat stroke conditions were happening to people who are OVER 65?

Prescription medications can also take their toll on your ability to tolerate heat and high outdoor temperatures.
Thank goodness for Willis Carrier and his invention of modern air conditioning, right?
Here are 5 basic tips to help our Seniors survive Summer in good style!

  1. Take cool showers, particularly midday if you feel the heat getting you down.
  2. Enjoy the outdoors, but do it in air-conditioned environments like recreation centers, a senior center, the library, a fine local coffee shop or shopping at the local mall. Our community also offers a great air-conditioned clubhouse for you to enjoy.
  3. Sitting on the front porch and needing a quick cool down? Soak a washcloth with cold water and place it around the back of your neck. (That’s an old Boy Scout trick!)
  4. Do you love good food? Great, but focus on eating lighter. Try cold tuna or chicken salad, spinach salad, cold soups (they are delicious) and iced tea and iced coffee.
  5.  Speaking of coffee, drink LOTS of cool water during the day. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty. Remember, many seniors go through the day dehydrated and don’t even realize they are needing fluids.

Living here at Grace Pointe Living you don’t need to worry about being cool and comfortable indoors at your Ron Walters home, because your home is maintenance free and we have excellent air conditioning systems!

Enjoy your Summer fun and friends, but pay attention to keeping your cool and staying healthy here at Grace Pointe Living.

Add Some Spice To Your Life | Grace Pointe Living Health Tips

Making Your Food Taste Better and Your Health Improved

Who loves spicy foods? Have you ever lamented the bland taste of some foods in cafeterias, hospitals and retirement facilities? Don’t put up with it. Spice up your food for taste and most importantly for good health when you follow these health tips!
Health Retirement Life
We all know that spices and herbs have been used throughout history to make food taste better, preserve food (a necessity before modern refrigeration) and of course for health benefits and healing. Did you know that if you choose wisely you can assist your natural body functions and immune system to help keep your body and mindset in top gear when you reach the age of being ‘retired’?
Yes, herbs and spices can provide benefits in the taste of food, but there are actual curative properties to many spices and herbs. Many scientists are agreeing that food and spices have a good effect on human health. The antimicrobial and antitumorigenic properties of these antioxidant foods and spices make incorporating them into your daily diet a good idea.
What are some of the top picks in choosing a health-enhancing spice for your daily and weekly meal plan?

Garlic with Allicin

Garlic is a strong antibacterial agent and has been shown to speed up DNA repair, kill cancer cells. Garlic has also been studied for its sulfur-containing compounds, which have been found to be abundant in phytochemicals and flavonoids – both powerful anti-cancer substances.

Concerned about skin cancer? A study done at the Amala Cancer Research Centre in India showed that garlic extract inhibited two-stage chemical carcinogenesis on the skin of mice. These results indicate garlic has the potential as an anti-cancer agent as well as an anti-tumor promoter.

Turmeric with Curcumin

Turmeric can be purchased fresh, in its root form (we’ve seen it available at Sprouts and Whole Foods in fresh root form), or dried and powdered. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which studies have shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is widely believed to promote optimal liver function.
Turmeric powder can be used on eggs, added to soups and sauces, or rubbed on vegetables or chicken. Chicken Curry is a flavorful dish that includes plenty of this bright yellow spice.

Hot Peppers with Capsaicin

A powerful spice, the hotter the more effective the beneficial effect. A powerful antioxidant called capsaicin can be found in cayenne pepper and other hot peppers including habanero, chipotle, jalapeno, Anaheim, ancho, and Scotch bonnet peppers. Capsaicin has been shown in several laboratory studies to be toxic to cancer cells.

Oregano with Carvacrol

The popular Italian spice oregano is extremely antimicrobial, high in antioxidants, and has been shown to be a powerful parasite fighter as well as a cancer inhibitor. Ounce per ounce, fresh oregano has been shown in a study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to have higher antioxidants than fruits and vegetables. If you grow it in a flower pot or your herb garden, just pinch some off and eat it. It’s good medicine!
Remember that Turmeric, cayenne, garlic, and oregano are all highly toxic to cancer cells, and each one is super easy to add to your daily meals. 

Enjoy the great clubhouse and exercise equipment available for your use here at Grace Pointe Living, but make sure to incorporate good food and nutritionally effective spices and herbs to enhance your longevity and retirement life with us!

Avoiding Senior Loneliness | Let’s Call The Parents Today

Want to make someone happy today? Call Your Folks!

At Grace Pointe Living we believe that social connection and friendships are key to a healthy and happy retirement. Keeping family close and sharing quality time together is just as important as spending time with your friends. Grace Pointe Living provides the clubhouse, amenities and social activities for friendship connections, but it’s up to the kids to start making an effort to schedule time with their aging parents and let them know they are loved and cared for as they move through their retirement years.

Grace Pointe Living

Don’t avoid making that phone call and touching base with your aging parents! Better yet, schedule some time in your busy life and get together for dinner and some conversation.

Many of us grow up without really ‘growing up’. We might be nurturing some issue with our childhood or how we were raised. It’s not important in the big picture of things. The big picture is that family is important, forgiveness is necessary and there is no real excuse for not spending time and nurturing your aging parents. After all, who raised and nurtured you?

Recent studies have proved that not providing your aging parents with quality time with you, social interaction and appreciation for all they have done, can significantly affect their physical and mental health. Getting old is not always the pleasurable experience many imagine, as being retired can be great for the more free time available, but more free ALONE time is not good for anyone. That includes your parents.

Grace Pointe Living is Oklahoma’s Premier Active Adult Living Community
Enjoy Your Family and Friends Here!

What did this study find out about these negative effects on physical and emotional health?

The study concluded that loneliness is a significant factor in the decline of quality of life in older adults, including the risk of depression, cognitive impairment and health problems like coronary artery disease, and may even lead to an earlier death.

Specifically, the study looked at 1,600 adults with an average age of 71. Researchers found that 23 percent of participants who reported being lonely died within six years of the study, while only 14 percent of those who reported having companionship died during the same six-year period.

“Our social relationships are important not only to our quality of life but also our longevity,” said study author Julianne Holt-Lunstad, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, to WebMD.

“Throughout human history, we have relied on others for survival such as protection and food, and despite modern advancements that may [help with] certain aspects of survival so that we can live more independently, it appears that our relationships nonetheless still impact odds of survival,” she says.

One great benefit of spending time with others, particularly your parents is the benefit of laughter. You rarely will have a good laugh sitting in front of a computer screen, watching the negative news on television or living at your work desk. Remember that  Laughing is a powerful antidote to declining health, having been shown to boost immunity, lower blood pressure and stimulate both blood flow and mental activity.

So let’s all agree and make an effort to fix this issue of Senior loneliness!

Spending time with your parents benefits you, too. The wisdom passed down through generations can be invaluable, and no one quite understands you as mom and dad.

Oklahoma Retirement Tips | Welcome to Grace Pointe Living

Aging and Health – Try Healthy Nuts to Boost Your Longevity

Staying Young And Healthy With Healthy Nuts?

Believe it or not, the first created human beings who inhabited this planet, Adam and Eve, already had healthy nuts in their diet. In the Genesis, God provided them fruits that bear seeds that we now know as nuts. After thousands of years, we now understand why God never failed to create this fruit and seed in one. And a handful of it a day would never let you go wrong. Put healthy nuts in your diet!

A HEARTy Snack

Almonds, macadamia, pistachio nuts, walnuts, and hazelnuts are not just for the appetite, they also are great sources of a number of health benefits. The studies of the Seventh Day Adventists during the 1990s first elevated the status of healthy nuts to its consumers. The study of this religious group in Loma Linda, California indicated that those who eat healthy nuts live two and a half years more than those who do not.

Healthy Nuts for Aging

(The Seventh Day Adventist is a religious group that advocates healthy living by not smoking and drinking, and having a vegetarian diet. Members of this religious domination who live in Loma Linda live 5-10 years longer)

Eating Health Nuts is NOT Nuts!

Nuts are said to contain Omega 3 fatty acids. These are unsaturated fatty acids that may decrease the risk of acquiring coronary heart disease. People who eat five times or more of it every week had roughly a 50 percent decrease in risk of dying from heart disease as compared to those who eat only nuts once a week. Those who eat one to four times in a week reduced their risk of acquiring the heart disease by 25%.

Recently, researchers also found out that walnuts and almonds can lower the blood levels of bad cholesterol which can lead to cardiovascular diseases. Besides its protective effect on the heart, this fruit has a very low glycemic index. In fact, healthy nuts are now being recommended by many dietitians to patients with diabetes mellitus 2.

KEEPING YOU AND YOUR BRAIN YOUNG

Usually, what’s beneficial to the heart is also favorable to the brain. Nuts are not just a hearty snack but also a brain food. It helps keep your arteries clear so it lessens the risk of clogging arteries which can lead to stroke. Healthy nuts also promote the production of precursors of serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which improves the mood, and reduces depression.

One ounce of nuts is the recommended amount to eat. That is equivalent to 24 almonds or 12 walnuts. Nuts are full of calories so be careful in eating too much of eating pleasure. Eating more than one ounce is fine unless you replace unhealthy high-caloric foods in exchange for nuts.

Here’s the deal: those who eat one ounce of healthy nuts five times a week become 3.3 years younger for the males, and 4.4 years for the females.

In addition, you would also live two to three years longer compared to those who don’t.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EAT?

Well, raw, unroasted, unsalted healthy nuts are best for your body.

Almonds are not just tasty but are also beneficial because they are alkaline-formers even though they are high in protein. Having alkaline is good for the body because we need to keep up with the high acidic content of the body (which is the result of the oxygenation of all that we eat).

Walnuts are the healthy nuts that have the most abundance of Omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts are the kind that is beneficial to the diabetics.

Oklahoma Retirement at Grace Pointe Living

Grace Pointe Living Retirement Healthy Living Update

What’s the point of retirement if you don’t protect your health and vitality to enjoy it?

Grace Pointe Living Retirement

Living long and enjoying retirement lifestyle in Oklahoma is a good thing as long as you have good health. Who wouldn’t want to spend more time enjoying their life, family, kids, friends, and grandkids?

If you want to live a long life and a happy and healthy Oklahoma retirement, you’ll want to take care of your health and also be aware of the reality of aging health conditions. With proper and constant guidance from health professionals and your physician, you should be able to maximize those golden years and live a long and happy life.

Grace Pointe Living Bring You The Best in Healthy and Happy Oklahoma Retirement

So what are the main concerns of seniors and from YOU on your health that you need to pay attention to in achieving good health as you age? What weighs heavy on your mind as you strive to ensure the best retirement life?
Obviously, avoiding habits like smoking, getting your with under control and focusing on being physically active all play a big part in the success of living and long and healthy life.
It is possible to have excellent health in your 60s and beyond, but you have to be proactive and take charge of your health habits.

Here are some suggestions on areas of focus if you are serious about achieving and maintaining a healthy senior lifestyle.

  1. Heart Disease- Did you know that 37 percent of men and 27 percent of women who are 65 and older can have heart and cardiovascular issues? The accompanying concerns of high blood pressure and dietary factors like high cholesterol play a big part in this being a serious watchpoint for seniors. Focus on exercise (easy to do here at Grace Pointe) and healthy eating habits. Keep in touch with your doctor and use the wellness benefits of Medicare and your health professionals to maintain good health when it comes to your precious heart.
  2. Bone Density and Osteoporosis- You don’t want to lose your mobility and ability to get around the world and visit your friends and family. Low bone mass can create serious problems! Fractures, bone breakage, loss of movement and mobility all can accelerate an already fragile senior health issue into the critical stage. Diet and proper medical advice and medication can greatly help here!
  3. Diabetes- Did you know that 25 percent of seniors can face problems with diabetes? Ask your physician, exercise advisors, and health professionals to set you up with good diet plans and medical programs that can avoid serious blood sugar and diabetes problems.
  4. Balance and Fall Dangers- Falling has been the downfall (no pun intended) of many seniors. In later life, the most critical lifestyle incident can be the unexpected trip or fall. Most falls occur in your personal residence. Think of the areas in your home that would cause this to be a problem…slippery bathroom areas, rugs, furniture.
Engage in healthy exercise and be attentive to your diet. Access your health benefits, providers and doctors to keep you abreast of the best preventive treatments for keeping your health in optimum status as you get older.
Getting older is not a health decline that you have to surrender yourself to these days. Keep your options open and keep your spirits up. You’ll be more likely to achieve good senior health and a long and happy Oklahoma retirement life to enjoy with friends and family. At Grace Pointe Living, we are here to ensure that your Oklahoma retirement is happy, healthy and all that it can be!
