Fitness and Aging

Maintaining a healthy diet and taking regular exercise are the best ways to see that you can stay active in your later years too. If you look after your body, you are more likely to have better quality of life as you get older.

 

Many people suffer aches, pains, and ailments as they get older and we’re starting to realize that many of these conditions aren’t only caused by age. They are also caused or exacerbated by inactivity. “Use it or lose it” the saying goes. When it comes to your health, it’s true.

 

Physical inactivity is a major cause of declining health. It’s easier than ever to be inactive, with new distractions being added to our lives every day.

 

Note that physically fit people have lower incidences of – or fare better with – problems such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure.

 

Taking exercise several times a week, especially aerobic exercise, will give your body the workout it needs to stay in good condition. Raising your pulse will help you to keep your heart healthy. With increased blood flow, you’ll also be pumping oxygen around your body. When more oxygen is delivered to the brain, it performs better.  Increased blood flow to the brain also allows it to remove metabolic waste. If you have any worries about mental decline in later life, know that exercise can slow this process and can help reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.

 

With improved living conditions and healthcare, people are living longer than ever. If you want to be active and comfortable in your later years, exercising now will help.

 

We understand that for many people, taking regular exercise is much easier said than done. As we get older, our responsibilities tend to increase. There may be children or grandchildren to care for. Work obligations may be more pressing than ever. And it might be the case that it’s not as easy to get everything done in a day as it used to be.
