Who would have thought the humble rose could provide a solution.
Gatwick, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 21 January 2014
Getting off the sofa to do some gardening is a great form of exercise for the elderly. A Swedish study involving 4,232 people found that gardening can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, report BBC News on 29th October 2013. The study’s findings published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that even those active on a daily basis had a lower risk of experiencing a heart attack or stroke. The findings stated that it had clinical relevance for elderly people as activity improves lifestyle, thus prolonging life ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24710089).
Mowing the lawn or even pruning the rose bushes can count as exercise. Anything which makes the individual warmer, breathe harder and heart beat faster, counts towards the 150 minutes of recommended weekly activity for a healthy lifestyle.
Your Lifestyle Products comment, “the trouble is that quite often, those with mobility problems are often unable to exercise or get out in the garden due to stiff limbs.” Who would have thought that the humble rose could provide a solution.
