Seniors Guide posts provide seniors with more realistic—and fun—options for exercise
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) February 29, 2016
Exercise, nutrition and sleep are critical to your health throughout your life, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes increasingly important as you age. Staying active, eating right, keeping your weight down, and getting a good night’s sleep, can help seniors remain both physically and mentally fit and potentially even live longer.
However, for many, lack of motivation seems to increase in direct proportion to their advancing age.
“As we get older, there’s sometimes the tendency to say, ‘I’ve earned the right to do what I want. I’m going to eat that piece of cake,’” says Katharine Ross, vice president of Seniors Guide magazine. “No one is saying, ‘Don’t eat the cake.’ We’re simply suggesting that you plan to take a walk after you eat it.”
As everyone was making New Year’s resolutions in January—and trying to stick to them—Seniors Guide took the opportunity to offer some good advice on how to lose holiday pounds, bring workouts indoors as the weather got colder, and choose the right fitness tracker. The online resource also enlightened seniors about the importance of sleep to their health and revealed some interesting facts about this restorative period.
“We know you’re probably not going to go out and run a marathon, but practicing healthy habits really doesn’t have to be that radical,” notes Ross.
January’s Seniors Guide posts provide seniors with more realistic—and fun—options for exercise like organizing a dance party with friends or chasing your grandkids around the house to get your heart pumping. These articles also deliver some kernels of wisdom to this already pretty wise generation, such as staying hydrated helps you burn calories faster and lack of sleep can cause you to gain weight.
At Seniors Guide, our mission is not only to equip seniors with information that is relevant but also to provide them with advice that is realistic and, most importantly, to help them set goals that are achievable.
