Proper nutrition and adequate physical activity are important at any age but can play a critical role in our lives as we age. Millions of older adults are taking stock of their health and hitting the gym to stave off chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and high blood pressure. Regular physical activity has beneficial effects on most (if not all) organ systems, and can prevent a broad range of health problems.
If you are new to exercise or haven’t exercised in a long time, be sure to consult your physician before starting a program.
Here are some helpful tips for staying active:
- Engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as brisk walking, on five or more days per week;
- Include strength training exercises in your regular workouts;
- Make sure activities that enhance flexibility are part of your routine;
- If you have difficulty with your mobility, perform moderate amounts of low-impact activities such as swimming, water exercises or stretching.
