Seniors – Move More. Sit Less. Live Longer.
How active are you from day to day? To enjoy your senior years, you should be getting at least two hours and 30 minutes of exercise a week. That's about 30 minutes of exercise five days a week. Try our senior exercise videos. There are a large variety of videos, pick the one that is right for you.
And it doesn't have to be hard. You could work out at the gym, hire a personal trainer, or join a fitness class. If you're not getting the recommended amount of exercise, just get started with a few minutes of exercise a day. Even a little bit of walking can have a big impact on your overall health and longevity.
In fact, in a recent study, researchers found that something as simple as walking a couple minutes every hour lowered the risk of dying early by 33 percent. That's a pretty sweet return on an investment of just two minutes of your time.
You may not be as fast or strong as you were when you were younger, but you can still benefit from being active. If you prefer something other than walking, you can be more active by working in the yard, dancing, or playing with the grandkids. Looks for ways to be more active and sit less, and you'll be more likely to live longer.
You can also maintain your health as you age by eating a healthy diet. As you age, you typically don't need as many calories as you used to. And it's a good idea for most aging adults to cut back on sodium to maintain heart health. So what should you be eating?
