It seems like the older we get the less active we become. And sometimes after retirement, we slow down so much that it is hard to get started again. Enterprises TV reminds readers to stay active with a few helpful suggestions.
Move. Movement is essential to staying active. Get up and take walks, go dancing, play golf, or do any favorite physical activity. This keeps joints loose and not stiff, helps maintain balance and promotes endurance.
Read. Read the newspaper, magazines, books, e-books or anything else to keep the mind active. Take a class at a lifelong learning center found at many local colleges and universities. Try not to let the mind rest too long.
Learn. Learn something new. Enterprises TV believes we are never too old to learn something new. Learn how to play the piano, learn a new language, learn how to blog or anything else that one finds challenging and fun.
Socialize. Organize or join a book club. Plan a luncheon with friends. Meet new people at community events. Socializing is important to someone who lost their spouse. Invite singles out with everyone else. The key to staying active as we get older is to not stop doing what we love. Sure we may slow down a bit. But we can still be active everyday. Exercise mind and body for a longer and more fulfilling life.
