Get outside and move aroundGet Out and Move

Exercise is essential to maintaining good health, good posture and self esteem. Research has shown that physical activity can help prevent or improve chronic disease and maintain function in older adults. Always consult your physician before starting any exercise routine.

Regular Activity Can...

  • Give you more energy
  • Make your heart stronger
  • Help you sleep better
  • Decrease depression
  • Control your weight
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Strengthen bones - slowing down osteoporosis

With warmer weather here, make an effort to get out and walk, ride your bike, play golf, or swim. Exercise can be particularly beneficial for those with arthritis. Regular activity strengthens your muscles and joints and encourages circulation of nutrients and oxygen to vital organs and joint structures.
