Exercise and Aging

As we age exercise is as important if not more important than when we were young.

The elderly become more sedentary and less active as the energy levels decline. Consequently muscles, heart and lungs do not get the rigorous workout they got when we were younger.


Movement is the key. Any type of movement done repetitively and regularly for duration of time is beneficial. Walking routinely is always good. However, if you can’t walk or if there is inclement weather, sitting in a chair and lifting your legs, and moving your arms are good. Even lying on a bed and bending and/or lifting your arms and legs are a good form of exercise. If you have a spouse or friend, put some music on and dance.

Please start out slow. Maybe begin exercising for 5 or 10 minutes and gradually build up to a longer time as your body and endurance permits.
