Even performing simple tasks around your home . . . HELPS!

A little activity goes a long way, even for the elderly who may have mobility problems

Most exercise recommendations include several sessions of moderate to vigorous activity each week, but not all adults are physically or mentally up to the task.

WHY?

Donald Thomsen’s insight:

IF EXERCISE IS SO IMPORTANT TO OUR OLDER GENERATION, WHY WON’T EVERYONE DO IT?

  • “A lot of people may feel that it’s too late, or maybe too difficult to exercise, but even activities that are barely above being sedentary can help,” medical studies say.
  • “It’s never too late to incorporate these things, and we shouldn’t underestimate the potential health benefit that incorporating more light activity into the day might have.”
  • The famous, oft quoted axiom cited by Clint Eastwood in his role as “Dirty Harry” . . . “A man (or woman) has to know their limitations.”

They’re pitfalls as to your ATTITUDE regarding your decision to begin exercising.

If you are OVER-OPTIMISTIC or UNREALISTIC in your approach:

  • You may “bite off more than you can chew.”
  • If you over-reach in selecting a workout routine, you are doomed to fail.
  • You will be overwhelmed and dropout in a very short time.
  • You will be reluctant to ever start again because, “Hey I tried that and it didn’t work . . . I’m just too old.”

Conversely, if you UNDERESTIMATE your abilities and you choose an UNCHALLENGING workout routine:

  • You won’t take it seriously or devote the required attention to achieve a worthy goal.
  • You probably won’t see any meaningful benefits in a reasonable timeframe.
  • You will be underwhelmed and dropout in a very short time.
  • You will be reluctant to ever start again because, “Hey I tried that and it didn’t work . . . I’m just too old.”

OK, WE KNOW IT’S IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE . . . “SO WHAT’S THE ANSWER?”

It took me over a year to answer that question.

  • Trial and Error applications
  • Research in the Fitness/Wellness fields for Seniors
  • First-hand experience of living in a, 55 and older, community in San Diego, CA.
