Over 50? Here are some hints to get you started and
keep you going.
The goal remains 30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week. Start slowly and set a pace that you can tolerate. Accumulate the 30 minutes throughout the day. For greater health benefits, try for 60 minutes.
Watch for community opportunities such as mall
walkers and classes at recreation and senior centers.
Do something that you like. Try ballroom dancing or
Try something you have never tried before. How about
Tai Chi or yoga?
Plan an active visit with your grandchildren. Take
them to the park. Go for a walk. Even a trip to the museum or mall
takes lots of walking. Remember, busy grandchildren are happy
grandchildren. Return them tired. Their parents will thank you.
Exercise with a friend. You can talk while you walk.
