At this time of year, we can often find ourselves ready to start something new. After indulging at Christmas, the new year is a great time to start taking your health and wellbeing into consideration to be ready for the year ahead.
As you get older, it can be harder to make sure you’re getting the exercise that you need. It can also become less appealing to eat well and look after yourself. Of course, there is no problem with eating what you want to but it’s all about everything in moderation.
Depending on your age, there are a variety of exercises that can be tailored to you to make sure your body doesn’t slow down more than it needs to. We tend to become less busy in life as we get older. Staying active is a great way to keep busy and fit, as well as keeping you healthy physically and mentally.
Spending Time with New People
We can spend more time alone as we get older, so joining a club or a community organisation can help to keep our minds active. Spending time with others can really reduce the risk of this. Your social activities can also include dancing, which is another great way to keep your body active.
Swimming is a gentle form of exercise and can be enjoyable if you are able to get to a pool. Swimming can have a positive impact on your mind as well as your body as it is known to reduce stress and blood pressure. Even a short session in the water can improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Exercise AT Home
If after a busy day all you want is to stay at home then doing some YOGA or even some gentle cleaning can help stay active and reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.
Exercise can help de-stress and after a busy days work in a Nursing Home it is important to try and switch off.
