Regular exercise can help older adults stay independent and prevent many health problems that come with age. It also helps your muscles grow stronger so you can keep doing your day-to-day activities without becoming dependent on others.
Older adults should move more and sit less throughout the day. Keep in mind, some physical activity is better than none. Older adults who sit less and do any amount of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity gain some health benefits. Your health benefits will also increase with the more physical activity that you do.
Some of the Other Health Benefits of Moving Regularly for Seniors:
