Physical Changes Institution Affiliated Date Various changes happen to one’s body when he or she grows older (Newman and Newman 2009). Some of these changes occur externally although there are those that are internal. What this means is that most of these changes may not be noticed by another person because they cannot physically see them but their effects cannot be overemphasized. For a young child growing older it means that the changes occurring in their bodies will be evident because most of the changes are physical. For example one will see an increase in height boys’ shoulders will broaden and girls will start growing breasts and other changes. For the old people however growing older means that the changes take place internally. Changes will take place mostly in the organs tissues cells should continue with their activities to avoid this. Another recommendation that would work for the people is for them to keep eating a balanced diet. Eating a balanced diet gives such individuals the strength that their bodies need to fight the challenges brought about as someone ages. An unhealthy diet makes someone grow weak to the point that they fail to get involved in their normal activities as they used to. The best way to avoid this is to take balanced diet.
