Both aerobic and strengthening activities are beneficial to overall good health. Aerobic activities speed your heart rate and breathing as they help improve heart and lung fitness. Aerobic activities will also help reduce anxiety and depression. Strengthening activities will help build and maintain bones and muscles. Stretching exercises will help maintain and increase flexibility. It is important as we grow older to set exercise goals to help slow down the natural aging process of losing muscle strength and joint flexibility.
Set three goals today: 1. When available use stairs instead of an escalator 2. When rising from a chair or couch don’t push off with your hands, use your legs to become upright. 3. ALWAYS remind yourself to stand up straight, shoulders back! ALWAYS.
