Staying Active in Warmer Temps
Older adults tend to slow down and spend more time indoors during the winter months. Spring and Summer’s arrival is an opportunity to rejuvenate your overall wellness by getting outside and, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Here are five ways to welcome warmer days back:
Gardening promotes health and quality of life. It aids in physical strength, flexibility, and cognitive skills.
Walk outdoors to improve mood, and feel revitalized and energetic. Outdoor activity reduces tension and depression.
Enjoy seasonal foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables unique to the season. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Volunteer outdoors and spend some time helping others! The warmer weather is energizing and volunteering is a great way to give back.
