We watched Glenbrooke being built and knew right away that we would be selling our home to enjoy our retirement here. We have been here since 2003 and we will continue living here. Glenbrooke’s staff is second to none and they have become our family. Our friends that live here at Glenbrooke are also more like family. We enjoy the activities and lifestyle that Glenbrooke offers and truly believe there is not a better place to live out our retirement!
How to Stay Active During The Winter Months Back
Many seniors recognize the importance of exercise and incorporating daily fitness routines into their lives. However, the winter time can play a challenge as the weather makes it unpleasant to go outside and be active.
The cold weather may prove to be a hindrance but it is important that you find other options for exercise during the winter. Even though the air outside is frightful, exercise indoors may be delightful.
Physical activity for seniors is fundamental in maintaining a healthy life. Exercise not only builds muscle but also improves the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Exercising on a regular basis increases your stability which may prevent falls that often lead to broken bones. Exercise will even help you heal faster and prevent some chronic diseases, like diabetes or osteoporosis.
So, what types of winter exercise can you take part during the winter months? Maybe join a gym, take fitness classes or swim indoors are just a few examples of how to stay active during those harsh winters.
If you stay active, hydrated, eat and sleep well, and you’ll feel healthy no matter what the season.
