May 26th is Senior Health & Fitness Day! At North Star Senior Advisors, we truly encourage living a healthy and active lifestyle. As we age, the importance of staying physically active becomes more pertinent. If you live in an assisted living in Orlando, FL, you should take advantage of the countless activities offered such as chair yoga, water aerobics, walking clubs, and more. Of course, staying active is easier said than done. The hustle and bustle of everyday life tend to push out the room for exercising and eating a well-balanced diet. From slowing metabolism to an increase in chronic illnesses, seniors face a number of challenges their younger peers do not. Not to mention, when we age, it is harder to get around and find the motivation to do just that.
In assisted living communities, the activities department highly encourages you to remain active with these activities mentioned above to help you to stay motivated. You can also make friends who like to do similar activities, keeping each other in check. While they never force anyone, the team members will encourage participation and you can pick and choose what you would like to do similar to a cruise ship!
Along with exercising, it is beneficial for seniors at any age to eat a healthy diet, schedule continuous health check-ups, stay hydrated, and maintain connections in the community and outside the community. However, check with your physician prior to beginning any exercise regimen and diet plan. This way, you know what is best for your body and can stay on track towards healthier living. In assisted living in Orlando, FL, you do not even have to leave to see the doctor, they come to the community for your convenience and provide three healthy meals with beverages daily.
By volunteering and staying active out in society, you can remain engaged with those around you as well. Enjoying these activities means less chance of health issues and altercations in the future. Find any way to be active and motivate yourself to go on walks or even bike riding. As far as eating a healthy diet, water is essential! When you go to the local grocery store or have them delivered, make sure to stock up on all the water you can get. Assisted living in Orlando, FL already provides plenty to water and other beverages throughout the day so you don’t have to worry about it. You can never go wrong with fresh apples, ripe banana’s, and beautiful strawberries which is all something communities provide as well.
Ultimately, live life by the three H’s: healthy, happy, and hydrated!
