Exercise has numerous health benefits – both physical and emotional – and can even help you live longer. Because of this, it should be part of your regular routine regardless of what the calendar says.
Winter means spending more time indoors and less time walking or biking, but don’t let the cold weather put a damper on your fitness. Instead, find activities that are perfect for seniors during winter months.
Anyone, at any age, can benefit from an active lifestyle that makes your muscles work and your body burn calories. Exercise can help everyone feel happier, lose weight, increase energy levels, reduce chronic diseases, and improve sleep.
For seniors, these benefits of exercise can be even more pronounced:
Some may think you should take it easy as you get older, but activity is important when you age. Seniors should be active all year round and these exercises can help that happen. Check out your local fitness or wellness center to find out what classes and options are available.
Winter doesn’t have to be a time to hibernate. Stay active for a fun and enjoyable few months. At Peabody, wellness is a big part of life. The senior wellness center here gives you many options to stay active all year long. For more information on how Peabody helps keep you active, contact us today.
