Resistance Training

Raymundo is passionate about strength training, and frequently posts videos of herself working out online. "Just trying to stay strong," she captioned one post. Lifting weights offers many health benefits to both men and women as they get older, especially when it comes to bone health. "Numerous studies have shown that strength training can play a role in slowing bone loss, and several show it can even build bone," says Harvard Health. "This is tremendously useful to help offset age-related declines in bone mass. Activities that put stress on bones can nudge bone-forming cells into action. That stress comes from the tugging and pushing on bone that occur during strength training (as well as weight-bearing aerobic exercises like walking or running). The result is stronger, denser bones."


She Plays the Piano


Raymundo is an accomplished piano player, and enjoys musical sessions with her children. Numerous studies show playing an instrument can improve brain function and help fight depression and anxiety. "Learning to play an instrument like the piano is a complex task: it requires a musician to read a score, generate movements and monitor the auditory and tactile feedback to adjust their further actions," says cognitive psychologist and music specialist Dr Karin Petrini. "In scientific terms, the process couples visual with auditory cues and results in a multisensory training for individuals. The findings from our study suggest that this has a significant, positive impact on how the brain processes audio-visual information even in adulthood when brain plasticity is reduced."


Portion Control

Raymundo doesn't eliminate any food groups from her diet—instead, she focuses on balance and portion control. "Research consistently shows that when we're presented with a big portion, we eat more—even when we are not hungry," says Lisa Young, PhD, RD, author of "The Portion Teller Plan" and an adjunct professor of nutrition at New York University.


Dance Workouts

Raymundo loves dance-based workouts like Zumba. "When you begin moving, you immediately release the brain chemicals dopamine, adrenaline, and endorphins, causing a powerful and lasting effect I call 'energized optimism,'" says Kelly McGonigal, PhD. "The adrenaline makes you feel powerful, the dopamine generates hope, and the endorphins bring you joy. You've created this amazing cocktail that boosts your mood and energy, leads you to experience better social interactions, makes you more likely to progress on your goals, and lowers stress. So dancing doesn't just make you feel great in the moment. It sets you up to be a better version of yourself."


She Takes Supplements

Raymundo likes to take B vitamin supplements as part of her wellness routine. "B vitamins can affect your whole body, from the top of your head to your mood, to intestinal constipation to tingling in your extremities in more severe cases," says Kerstin Koenig, MD. "B vitamins – and especially B-12 (Cobalamin) – are essential for repairing your DNA and for the function of nerves."
