Factors Influencing Healthy Aging
A longer life brings with it opportunities like the chance to pursue new activities such as further education, a new career or a long-neglected passion. Yet the extent of these opportunities and contributions depends heavily on one factor: health. If people can experience these extra years of life in good health and if they live in a supportive environment, their ability to do the things they value will be little different from that of a younger person.
Physical and social environments can affect health directly or through barriers or incentives that affect opportunities, decisions and health behavior. Maintaining healthy behaviors throughout life, particularly eating a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity and refraining from tobacco use, all contribute to reducing the risk of non-communicable diseases, improving physical and mental capacity and delaying care dependency.
Supportive physical and social environments also enable people to do what is important to them, despite losses in capacity. The availability of safe and accessible public buildings and transport and places that are easy to walk around are examples of supportive environments.
