Summertime Exercise Guidelines for Seniors

Seniors Jogging

Summer is here, and it’s the ideal time for seniors to go outdoors, enjoy some fresh air and get some exercise. Not only can exercise help you to feel great, it can also help you stay fit and reduce your health risks. 

 

More specifically, exercise has been shown to improve heart and lung function, reduce the risk of heart disease, decrease the chance of illness or death from all causes, decrease anxiety and depression, and even slow the aging process.

Drinking water is not something we think much about, yet it’s an essential ingredient for our good health.
