It’s the golden years of your life, but with age comes a new challenge; how can you still maintain the active lifestyle that you once enjoyed without causing yourself injury?
Ultimately the decision is up to you however, we have come up with a quick list of lifestyle activities that are suitable for you or your loved one’s age group.
- A daily walk that isn’t too strenuous will help you maintain and improve your health, you have the bonus of moving about but you will also be able to soak up the sun and get some much-needed vitamin D.
- Joining a book club to keep your mind active is just as important as keeping your body active. Book clubs also have the benefit of keeping you social, which reduces the change of developing depression.
- There are some vital benefits to the simple game of lawn bowls. Firstly, you will be getting out of the home and stretching the muscles that would otherwise not be used if you don’t participate in sports at all, there is also the social benefit of a team sport, and its never too late in your life to make new friends.
- Go out for morning or afternoon at a local cafe or restaurant with a group of friends. Sometimes it’s the simplest pleasures that bring the most joy and social encounters. You’ve worked your entire life or cared for others and now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of a lifetime’s labour.
