One widely accepted definition of health is that it is the absence of disease. Illness sometimes affects people for no apparent reason, but the more positive your view of life, the less likely you are to succumb to many of the problems that afflict the elderly. A combination of good health habits, sensible nutritional practices, and outlets for physical and emotional energies will go a long way in helping you enjoy healthy and satisfying senior years. And many older individuals seem to maintain the vigor and spirit to help overcome any physical disabilities. Although physicians may be able to guide you about many aspects of your health care, the principles of living the good life must be not only understood but also adopted.

To remain in the best possible state of health, you must be emotionally satisfied and socially secure. There are important interactions among your physical, psychological, and social well-being. Before examining the medical aspects of good health, I will discuss other factors that influence how successful your senior years will be.
