Exercising is often thought to be a chore for most of us, and more often that not, our imaginations of exercising, or any form of physical activity is often depicted as going for long runs/jogs or working out in the gym.
Physical activity can help older adults maintain bone density, improve joint stability, flexibility, and balance, which can help with fall prevention.
Before beginning your exercise, you should consume something light 2 hours before so you will have enough energy. (Hint: GoodMorning beverages make an excellent choice! They are easy to make, and give you the lasting energy you need!) Always remember to warm up & cool down, stop if you’re feeling discomfort, and consult your doctor if needed!
Not all forms of physical activity require a gym membership! Here are 8 easy exercises you can do at home (with minimal equipment needed):
1. Stair climbing
