How to Stay Fit as You Age
Age brings with it many rewarding benefits: wisdom, patience, experience, understanding. But as we get older, we also discover changes in how our bodies move and behave—changes that contradict how young we feel on the inside.But while your body may no longer look or move as it did when you were in your 30s or 40s, that doesn’t mean you have to just accept the effects of aging. Instead, you can choose to make deliberate decisions that can transform your experience of aging into a positive and, above all, healthy one. And it all starts with staying fit.
Scientific studies have shown that not only does fitness promote happiness and satisfaction in our lives at any age, but it can also help alleviate or even stave off age-related issues such as illness, chronic pain, fatigue, and short-term memory loss. With the knowledge, tools, resources, and support systems recommended by the experts, you can build and maintain fitness in your 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond. And by doing so, you’ll open the door to a fulfilling life in which you can:
- Maintain your physical independence.
- Keep your body and your mind active.
- Increase your happiness and well-being.
- Avoid or ameliorate some of the common ailments of aging.
