6 things your body's trying to tell you
When you're dehydrated
Sign: Kidneys gradually lose efficiency, and nerves that signal thirst decline
Solution: Sip water throughout the day.
When to go easy on dessert
Sign: From early adulthood to late middle age, our metabolic rates fall by an average of 10 percent.
Solution: Think of the metabolic slowdown as your body's way of getting you to be more mindful of what's on your fork or spoon.
When you need to hit the hay
Sign: The National Sleep Foundation says the architecture of sleep changes as we age; we spend more time in light stages of sleep and less in those that are more restful.
Solution: Get more sleep than you think you need -- always at least 7 hours.
When you need to stretch
Sign: By our mid-40s, most of us have lost between 3 and 4 inches in the sit-and-reach test, ABC News reports.
Solution: Do more activities like yoga and tai chi, which boost both flexibility and balance. After any workout, take time to stretch.
When to drop a grudge
Sign: Psychologists have known for awhile that people tend to become more forgiving over time.
Solution: Have a kinder heart. A UWM study shows heart patients who do forgiveness counseling have significantly fewer heart symptoms than those who don't.
When to skip that extra glass of wine
Sign: Aging seems to reduce women's ability to tolerate alcohol. Drinking even a little more than usual increases the risk of tipsy mishaps.
Solution: A little vino now and then is good, but stick to 1 glass at a time, and 7 servings per week.
