Health Benefits of Staying Active
There are many advantages to staying active during retirement. The most immediately noticeable benefit is that those who exercise have more energy for other daily activities. Exercise also promotes better sleeping habits. Being more active each day can allow seniors to feel more energetic during the day, and get a full nights rest every evening.
Staying physically active has also been proven to reduce stress, improve your overall mood and protect against injury. Regular exercise helps to strengthen muscles and bones. This can help prevent injury during other daily activities. Strong muscles and bones will help increase stability, making it easier to continue doing the things you love.
There are other advantages to exercise that you may not see or feel immediately. Regular exercise lowers blood pressure, something that many seniors monitor and use as a measure of health. Exercise lowers the risk of many other health issues such as heart disease, heart attack and some cancers.
