Senior Fitness Tips

As we get older, our bodies change and need some extra care to ensure that we stay healthy.

Here are some tips to keep you in tip top shape as you age!

Exercise When You Can

Exercising is one of the most well-known ways to stay fit. Walking keeps your heart healthy as your endurance changes when you age. Since it is a lower impact exercise than running, it’s also easier on your joints, making it easier for you to get out and enjoy the warmer weather.

Nourish Your Brain And Body

Your diet has one of the biggest impacts on your fitness and overall health. Certain foods that keep your brain healthy can help to fight dementia and protect the organ that keeps you running. Foods that help with this include fish, olive oil, fruit, and vegetables. Eating a balanced diet will help you feel better overall, too!

Make Time To Laugh

It may sound strange, but laughter has been proven to help people live longer. The science behind this is that laughter increases blood flow, lowers hormones that cause stress, and increases infection-fighting antibodies. Laughter really is the best medicine!

Spend Time With Others

Whether it is joining a club or doing a class, being social can help to keep you active and works along the same lines as laughter by keeping you healthy. Socialization prevents loneliness and keeps your mind working. You can also couple this with getting your exercise by signing up for an exercise class with your friends.

Even though our bodies, joints, and overall health can change as we get older, these tips can help to prevent age-related conditions.

If you find yourself with nagging aches or pains that just don’t seem to go away, it might not be just because of your age. Sit down with one of our therapists to get to the root of the problem. Click here to fill out a short form to reserve a free consultation.
