staying-active-as-a-senior

Staying healthy as we grow older can be tricky; there are so many new challenges that come with aging, including health and mobility issues that can affect everything from lifestyle to housing. It can be difficult to find a comfortable medium when it comes to exercise and diet. Many seniors find that a lack of exercise keeps them from being able to enjoy the things they love most, while too much activity puts a strain on joints and muscles. However, there are many things you can do to make sure your mind and body are both in great shape well into your post-retirement years—after all, doing so is important for your overall well-being.

Keeping your safety a priority is extremely important. When creating a plan for your physical wellness, it’s crucial to make sure you think about how your mobility will be affected because falls are one of the major causes of injury for seniors in the U.S. For instance, walking is a great way to get in a workout, but it’s better to choose a well-paved path at the park over uneven sidewalks in the neighborhood.

Here are a few of the best tips on how to maintain your health and well-being as a senior.
