Falls can happen anytime in life, but aging increases the chances of it occurring. Yet, it is crucial to comprehend that falls can be prevented, irrespective of one’s age. This is a reassuring fact!

A fall can rob you of years of independence and fulfilment in just a split second. When leaving your home, its important to keep the following crucial reminders in mind.

How to stay active as we age

To ensure we have longer and healthier lives than our predecessors, we must prioritize remaining physically and mentally active. As we age, it’s common to experience a decline in energy, muscle strength, and motivation to engage in physical activities. However, it’s crucial to understand that staying physically active is highly beneficial for our overall well-being. It helps us stay in good shape and plays a significant role in delaying or preventing cognitive decline.

Engaging in physical activity for most days of the week is crucial. It’s highly recommended to include exercises that improve both strength and balance. This will make daily tasks easier, reduce the risk of falls, and help maintain our independence. Participating in group activities is also essential for maintaining physical fitness, social connections, and overall happiness. Urban Personal Training offers a variety of group fitness classes for older adults that specifically target the areas that are most important.
