The long-term benefits of regular exercise on physical, mental and emotional health are well-documented. Being active can help you:
- Improve muscle strength and tone
- Boost metabolic rate
- Reduce body fat
- Increase bone mineral density
- Improve memory and think more clearly
- Manage body weight
- Stay independent longer
- Enhance social well-being
- Enrich quality of life
While many older adults think physical activity can be risky, leading an active lifestyle can actually prevent or delay many diseases and disabilities. Regular exercise can also help manage existing conditions like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, balance problems and difficulty walking.
