Are you exercising enough? It’s easy to let physical activity sit on the backburner, but making fitness a priority can yield positive changes to all aspects of your life! No matter where your fitness levels are now, increasing your activity a little bit can produce results.
Benefits of staying active
Staying active by exercising regularly can help you to avoid injury and hospital visits. The CDC reports that adults over 65 should be doing moderate intensity physical activity for at least 30 minutes five days per week. Further, 2 days in the week should focus on muscle strength and 3 days in the week focused on balance. Even if you aren’t hitting these goals, it’s important to remember that some activity is better than none! Individuals who exercise find that they have a better quality of life.
Benefits of routine exercise include:
- Physical wellness: Exercising isn’t only for managing weight! Physical activity aids in improving mobility, cardiovascular health, and strengthening muscles.
- Mental wellness: Regular exercise is great at relieving stress, improving sleep and boosting your mood.
- Community: Working out with a group or at a fitness center is a great way to meet new people with similar interests!
- Independence: Those who work out on a regular basis are at a lower risk of falls, stroke, and osteoporosis. Many people also find that they can do more things on their own for longer.
