September is Healthy Aging Month, a good time to reflect on that good common sense advice you got from your pediatrician as a kid.  Writing for Next Avenue, Dr. Edward Schneider, a physician with credentials in both gerontology and pediatrics, gives seven tips that work just as well for older adults as they do for kids. (One example: stay in school.)

Healthy Aging Month was started 20 years ago to draw attention to the myths of aging. The observance encourages adults 45+ to re-invent themselves and improve their physical, mental, social and financial well-being.
