Getting Older Gracefully
We are living longer. Nurturing our bodies and our minds is important so we can do all the things we want to do, for as long as possible. Increasing activity helps to keep your body running like a well-oiled machine: parts can seize up if they are not used. Keep moving! Dancing to music is proven to be the best mind and body exercise going. A combination of yoga-inspired stretching and dance really improve energy levels, fitness and strength.
Maintaining a youthful outlook on life knocks years off your ‘real’ age. Apparently ’60 is the new 40′. We have the opportunity to look and feel 10 or 20 years younger with regular exercise. Improve your complexion by exercising regularly and drinking plenty of water.
Being fit helps balance and posture. It improves and prolongs quality of life, as well as exercising the brain. Practice makes perfect and improves co-ordination. It may seem daunting to take up a new activity, but self-confidence will grow as you become physically fitter.
Joining a class is a great way to meet new friends. Loneliness can be an issue as we age. It can be difficult to take the plunge to start a new activity, but exercising in a friendly and fun environment can really uplift the spirits. Feeling happy on the inside reflects in your face, and passes joy to others too!
