Gone are the days that grandma and grandpa spent their afternoons on the porch swing and their evenings watching Matlock. Seniors everywhere are getting active, and as a result, they’re reaping the many rewards of a healthier lifestyle. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention finds that regular physical activity is the single most important contributor to healthy aging.
Because of healthier lifestyle choices – including balanced and varied diets, increased activity, and active engagement – older adults are better able and are more inclined to stay physically active. It’s a happy circle – increased activity begets improved health, which encourages more movement. To top it all off, moving more leads to greater happiness and overall wellbeing.
Let’s Get Physical
Aging Americans are getting in the active spirit by trying out new sports, walking for fun and fitness (or as a means of transportation), hiking, biking, taking their grandchildren to the park, golfing, swimming, and playing tennis. These are just to name a few; there are even gyms that cater to the senior crowd with silversneakers classes that include yoga, dancing, and aerobics. There is practically no end to what’s available, and there are activities to suit everyone’s tastes and abilities – including yours!
Time’s have changed – it’s no longer uncommon to see seniors biking to the market, hiking with friends, and going on bicycle tours of local attractions. All of this activity – coupled with healthier diets and more holistic healthcare practices, including chiropractic – is contributing to the trend of seniors living more dynamic, vital, and longer lives. If you’re ready to join the fun but don’t know where to start, an experienced chiropractor can help. If you’re ready to take your physical fitness to the next level, a skilled chiropractor can help with that, too.
