As the saying goes, “Getting old isn’t for wimps.” When people are young, they don’t fully understand this statement, however, as they age they begin to “get it.” During one’s younger years, exercising is easier and reaping the physical and mental benefits was just as easy. However, as we age, our bodies begin to slow down. Exercising isn’t nearly as easy as it once was as we fight muscle aches, stiff joints and other problems. These annoyances make many people want to quit and give up. However, this is not the right thing to do if you want to keep your body looking (and feeling) young and healthy.

Keep Up the Exercise – Although exercising is the last thing you want to do, it’s actually one of the best things for you, no matter what your age is. Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly experience better sleep, lower stress levels and have more energy. The best part is that exercise doesn’t have to feel like exercise either. You can play golf, go on a walk, go swimming, play tennis or a number of other things to get your body moving…which is really all exercise is!

How to Choose the Right Activity – As mentioned above, getting your body to move is really all exercise is. Therefore, you don’t have to spend an hour walking on a treadmill to exercise…instead, you can choose an activity to do. So, how do you choose the right activity? First, you should choose something that you enjoy and doesn’t seem too difficult. You will need to take into consideration your unique health conditions, so it is wise to consult your doctor before getting involved in any activity. This will help you minimize the risk of seriously injuring yourself.

Establish a Safe Workout Routine – While you don’t have to lift weights and do strenuous aerobic workouts, you should have a safe workout routine established. Your routine should include stretching and exercising in some way every day. To effectively fight the signs of aging, you need to keep your routine well-rounded and include adequate amounts of weight-resistance training, cardiovascular activities and stretching. When you give adopt this type of safe workout routine, you will feel great and avoid serious injury because you aren’t overworking any one area while ignoring another. Finally, speak to your doctor about the workout routine you’re considering and make sure he/she feels it is safe for you to do.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that because you are climbing the “age ladder” that you have to look your age. If you want to keep a young and healthy looking body naturally, then keep your body in motion and eat a balanced diet.
