4 Good Reasons Why Exercise is Beneficial for Older Adults

4 Good Reasons Why Exercise is Beneficial for Older Adults

Just like everybody else, an older adult has a need to maintain a physical lifestyle. In simpler terms, you need to get up and exercise your way to a healthy and more fulfilling life ahead.

According to various research, exercising can give multiple benefits to the elderly. In fact, staying idle can even pose a greater danger than walking around and doing things around the house. Even moderate exercises, as well as physical activity, can do the trick.

In this blog, Home With Help is going to break down each benefit you can get out of exercising:

  • Avoidance of the perils of inactivity

    Some older adults do not want to exercise because of various and personal reasons. There are those that restrict exercises in their day because they fear that the routines would be too hard for them. Others do not fancy falling so they end up with limited mobility. But once you do not let your body function, you will eventually get used to being inactive.

    Of course, this is an exception to those who have certain conditions that limit their ability to move around. But it does not mean they should give up exercising entirely. If they want to exercise, they can; provided that they have consulted their doctors about the exercise routine safe for them to embark.

  • Prevention or delay of conditions

    We know that once a person starts growing old, he or she is letting various horrible conditions overtake his or her life. And you do not want that to happen to you, do you?

    Exercising every day will let you:

    • Lower your high blood pressure
    • Remedy your balance problem
    • Get rid of your difficulty in walking

    It can help an older adult avoid or slow down the progress of diseases and disabilities. And there are also cases recorded of people whose treatment consists of exercising in order to prevent a chronic disease.

    These include chronic diseases such as the following:

    • Arthritis
    • Diabetes
    • Heart disease
  • Management of stress

    It is important that we do not succumb to the fatalities of stress. Yes, stress can be fatal in an indirect way. It could hinder your body’s ability to naturally heal. At the same time, it could also summon diseases you have never imagined before.

    When we exercise, our stress levels are reduced because of the happy hormones our body produced. These good hormones help make us feel uplifted therefore giving us the sword and shield to beat stress and tone it down to a size we can handle and take care of.

  • Realization of unfinished dreams

    All of us have unfinished dreams or dreams that were not pursued due to responsibilities or financial restrictions. Because neither of those is a nuisance, now is an ideal time to continue pursuing those dreams.

    But how will you do it when your back aches, knee pains, and intolerable conditions get in the way? Good news though for research says that exercising can make you feel younger.

    Through being physical, you are letting your body restore their natural skills and capabilities. You can walk unassisted, move around the house without accidents and even go about with your day without the fear of falling. And when your physiological needs, as well as your safety, are realized, only then are you able to attain self-actualization.

No matter what a person’s age is, the need to exercise does not change. So do not hinder yourself from exercising. Age is never an excuse to make healthy life choices. If you are looking for different kinds of exercises that are safe for seniors, check this blog out:
