Everyone’s different. What works for you might not be the best fit for someone else. Still, health experts agree there are a few things you can do to ensure graceful living as you grow older.
From social activity, to exercise (physical and mental), and more, you can use these tips to boost energy and improve your quality of life. Here’s how to get started:
1) Find Your Happy Place
There’s a good reason why “the pursuit of happiness” was highlighted in this country’s Declaration of Independence. Psychologists say it’s important to determine what makes you most content. Studies have shown that happiness reduces stress and boosts your immune system.
One great way to achieve that goal is to increase social activity. Humans are social creatures, and it’s important for you to get in daily contact with others. Start by visiting our Ormond Beach senior center or other COA senior centers throughout Volusia County. Here, you’ll have the chance to get involved in several exciting programs and events.
2) Experience New Things
There’s an old saying that “variety is the spice of life.” Health experts say to keep your mind sharp, you should shake up your routine daily. Take a different route on your morning walk. Find games and activities you’ve never tried. You might also learn a musical instrument, explore a local park, or take courses at your local university.
There are always new opportunities at our COA senior centers conveniently located throughout Volusia County. From games (Bingo, Bunco, Mahjong, Bridge), exercise classes, line dancing, watercolor painting, and much more, it’s easy to expand your horizons.

3) Live Well
For the most part, you have control over your own health and wellbeing. That includes making decisions about whether or not to smoke or drink, participating in daily exercise and maintaining a healthy weight, making sure to get ample sleep, and more.
We also offer senior care services such as personal care, light homemaking and chores, social activities, and more. Plus, there are many activities for seniors that you can get involved with. Our senior centers are a great place to play bingo in Ormond Beach, Florida and across Volusia County.
