Aging is an inevitable thing, but that doesn’t mean the process has to be unpleasant. There are, in fact, a litany of things one can do to stay healthy, feel young, and age gracefully. What advice can you share on this front?

If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Click here to visit this week's topic.
2) Click the green button "answer this question".
3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens
5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.
"...stay healthy, feel young, and age gracefully. What advice can you share on this front?"
It sounds simplistic to say, Number One is 'stay in control of your own life'. But to me, that's the objective of any and all efforts you make to maintain good health as you age.
I won't be writing a new hub for this theme, but I'd like to post a link to one I wrote a while ago in tribute to my father's approach to the challenge.
It describes a spiritual and physical recharge that Dad accomplished in his own way, in his sixties, and in the face of dire predictions from his doctor. It's about self-belief, coupled with a belief in the healing power of nature. And taking action to maintain that control of your own life.
It will never win any Hub prizes, nor big readership, because it's not specific to any particular product / process / procedure. It's just called "What I Learned About Trees and Life From My Dad"
But I believe it would stand up to being re-titled "How to Stay Healthy, Feel Young, and Age Gracefully. One Man's Story"
Anyway, here's the link...

Ah! I Love this topic. I call dibs on the sleep disorders in adults subject. I'm already working on it, haha!
EDIT: http://shanna11.hubpages.com/hub/Common … -in-Adults
And there's the finished product-- a quick overview of the most common adult sleep disorders.
Okay, this is a great topic. I can see quite a few hubs I'd be qualified to write from the list, so I'll give this one a go. Thanks for the ideas, Simone. I like your new avatar, by the way!
Here's mine on how to prevent kidney stones, a common problem especially as we age.

Examples from real life:
Why Tae Kyon Masters Seem To Live Forever
What an inspiring example! Martial Arts would have been one of the last things I would have expected to come up this week, but you've presented a very compelling argument as to why it can be an excellent option for aging individuals! Awesome Hub.
Here's my contribution for the WTI, having dealt with joint pain myself (even though I am not at all old... LOL)!
http://stephhicks68.hubpages.com/hub/Th … uses-Cures
Okay, so I finished my contribution. Unfortunately, I know a little too much about knee osteoarthritis.
Oh My Aching Knees! How to Minimize the Pain of Arthritic Knees
I didn't follow the formal process at the answer section. I didn't know this weeks topic until almost finishing a hub. However, I do have some advice to offer; Read Patty's Hub, read Shanna11's hub, (that is all I've read thus far), and I am curious about the Invisible Hearing Aids. The joint pains are high on my list. I think reading all of them will provide a wealth of information.
Things I've notice about aging gracefully,
I turn the heater on when I'm cold
The young un's who use to call me OG=old guy are grandpas now (I had grey hair early)
For Shanna, I at times am afraid to fall asleep so, no restless leg syndrome
I hear sir more now than when I was on a military base
I get senior discounts, and I'm not old enough
I use to get asked by my dates what I did for a living, today they ask if I have retirement
I use to wonder what I would do when I grew up, now I wonder about my nephews and nieces
I use to get asked on campus what class am I taking, now I get asked what class do I teach
When I talk about this or that happening at work, a common reply is I wasn't even born yet
If I say I like Muddy Waters, I hear where is that?
Little ones use to look up at me, now I'm looking up at them
When I go to haven't seen in a long while get-togethers, a pretty gal walks by, I look, the old time friend next to me says, have you said hello to my daughter such and such, I think OMG I'm a pervert
I use to keep aspirin in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom, now they're in the kitchen cupboard and I can't find 'em betwixt all the bottles of meds
My doc use to always check the clipboard & call me Mr. Mitchell, now they 'all' call me Tim
And, the best for last, oh, darn, I don't remember . . .
Awesome topic that I'm getting increasingly interested in.
Here's my contribution regarding the effects of diet on longevity:
http://global-chica.hubpages.com/hub/Do … -Longevity
I wrote about simple tips on how to get rid of forehead wrinkles. I like this week's topic so I might write a couple more hubs. Thanks for the idea, Simone.

Now that you have all had a laugh over invisible hearing aids!!
They are actually aids that you wear in the ear canal, which means that you can't see them. I wear the huge ones that fill the whole ear so my hair is designed to make them invisible!!
Luckily I can laugh at it too-
tsmog - You are SO funny! Your comment could be a Hub.
http://arlenevpoma.hubpages.com/hub/How … Joint-Pain
A hip joint injury forced me into early retirement, but I haven't suffered any pain in my left hip since. Besides being stubborn and determined, here are the steps I took so that I don't have to take any drugs or see any doctors/specialists.
At last! Something I know quite a lot about
I started to write "How to get free hearing aids", but age and senility are obviously catching up with me, so it didnt quite come out like that.
It's a hub about free hearing aids in the Uk- what you can and can't get- hopefully it will be of interest to all those who are encountering the use of hearing aids for the first time, whether in the Uk or abroad as it contains details of some of the varying types of aids.

Finally made it in time for a WTI this week! Whew!
Wisjing all of you a Hoppy Holiday weekend!
I understand the Whew! That is a long hub about hearing aids. Really full of useful information. Great work!
Not sure that is a good idea for you- I was sandboxed for two months last year which is why I dont link to any one else's accounts in case it spreads!
Hahaa, hoppy holiday indeed! AWESOME Hub. Dang, I know so much about hearing aids now!
Here's my contribution for this WTI
http://chinchin.hubpages.com/hub/AMD-Ey … With-Aging
Happy Easter everyone!
Here is my weekly entry. Happy Easter, everyone!
http://mmargie1966.hubpages.com/hub/Cal … ging-Woman
Not sure what to say--too many answers but probably because I'm older than you!
This really was a great week. Thanks for the fantastic guides to gracefully aging, everyone!
Our latest WTI theme centers around developing business skills. Stop by the thread for some search-friendly titles and to join in!
