Active Aging Fit
Exercising is an important part of living a healthy lifestyle, no matter what age you are. Many people start their fitness routine young and eventually fall off the wagon, as they don’t feel the need to “fit in a bikini” or have “rock hard abs” anymore. However, working out is about much more than physical appearance, and actually may even be more important as you start to age. Staying active as a senior can help you to feel “young at heart,” and impact your health more than you realize. So why is active aging important? Check out the benefits below!
Benefits of Active Aging:
It’s natural that your metabolism will slow down with age. You may be eating the same foods you have all your life, but notice they’re affecting your body differently now. By staying active, you can maintain and lose weight if necessary.
Exercise, especially as you age, can help to reduce the impact of illnesses and chronic diseases including blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and more.
Sleep is crucial for overall health, and regular exercise can help you fall asleep easier, and allow you to get a more deep sleep to feel energized in the morning
Regular exercise can also help with brain function, including the prevention of memory loss, cognitive decline, and dementia.
As you age, you also may notice that your coordination may not be as good as it once was. Through exercise, you can maintain and improve your flexibility, mobility, and balance to help you be able to perform everyday activities easier.
