Celebrate National Senior Health and Fitness Day. The last Wednesday in May is Senior Health & Fitness Day. Approximately 100,000 senior adults will participate in activities across the United States.
What are your plans for exercise today?
Make time for a walk, bike, tennis, yoga, tai chi, pilates or kayak. Exercise and a good night’s sleep can increase serotonin, giving a sense of well being and help control blood pressure.
Cape Ann has many beautiful parks, beaches and woods to enjoy a peaceful walk. Or, enjoy one of the many fitness centers where you can exercise no matter the weather. Mix it up and ry something new.
Recruit a friend to join you and make it more fun! See what your local council on aging and senior centers have to offer.
Note: Check with your doctor prior to beginning a new exercise program. Exercise within safe guidelines and the recommendations of your physician.
