Staying active is one of the secrets to a long and healthy life. Of course, an active lifestyle doesn’t necessarily mean you have to don sportswear and lift heavy weights, but because this is what most people imagine when they’re told to stay active, they become uninterested - especially the elderly, considering that many of them already suffer from body aches and limited mobility. With home care for seniors in Palm Beach County, they can have access to programs that will help them stay fit.
Any form of physical activity is good for the body. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, this means that senior activities don’t have to be intense or high impact. As simple as walking around the house several minutes a day will significantly reduce their risk of stroke and heart attack.
Caregivers can also accompany seniors if they wish to do outdoor activities like a walk in the park or around the neighborhood for some sunlight and fresh air.
If seniors don’t enjoy long walks, they might find yoga interesting. Yoga offers numerous health benefits such as improving breathing and circulation, while minimizing pain caused by arthritis. Seniors who have been living a sedentary lifestyle for quite a while can start with chair yoga until their muscles get used to it.
Warrior poses and sitting while bending their bodies forward can help them get the exercise they need without the risk of falling.
