Keeping Active

22 ways to put more spring in your step

Age is no barrier to staying active: People once thought it was natural to slow down and do less as we get older. But now we know the more we do, the better we function. The better we function, the better we feel.  To maintain physical and mental health, we need to stay active. And the good news is, it’s never too late to start.

A happier you: By keeping active you’ll suffer less stress, have more energy, get a better night’s sleep, feel better in yourself, enjoy life more and make the most of social opportunities.

A healthier you: By keeping active you’ll have healthier bones and muscles, run less risk of falling and fracturing bones, have a healthier heart and blood pressure, reduce your risk of developing diseases like diabetes, colon cancer and stroke and maintain your ability to live independently.
