How staying physically active helps us as we age
Staying physically active is an important part of maintaining your health and well-being as you get older. In fact, it is recommended to get moderate-intensity aerobic exercise for a total of 150 minutes each week or vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise for 75 minutes each week. In addition to cardio, doing two strength-training exercises per week is also recommended.
Benefits of staying active
Consistent exercise has a wide range of benefits, some that you might not even realize. Staying physically active helps stabilize your mental health, increase bone and muscle strength, prevent arthritic issues, improve sleep, increase life longevity, decrease risk of disease, and boost self-confidence.
