Anti Aging Mobility Action Plan In Your Senior Years–During the senior years, most likely you will start to notice problems with your mobility and energy level. But that also depends on how well you had taken care of your health up until this stage of your life.
Some seniors will try to compensate for the lack of energy by taking multivitamins or supplements that contain minerals which will help to boost energy. While that is a good thing to do, it’s not as good as restoring mobility and energy together when you need it most.
How To Test Your Mobility And Energy Level?
There are ways that you can test both your mobility and energy level. You can perform a self-check to see if you have to adjust the way that you perform certain tasks. This might be as simple as having to turn a certain way when you go up or down a set of stairs, because you started to have pain in your back or joints.
Or you feel tire after walking the same distances that you used to walk with ease. And taking breaks during the walk which you normally didn’t need to. At this stage it’s best to engage in fluid movement to keep your mobility and activity at a good level.
What Kind of Exercises Are Good During Senior Years?
Fluid movement exercises won’t cause harm to your joints and are perfect for people who are in their senior years. One of these kind of exercises is Yoga, you can retain or regain mobility and energy by doing Yoga.
Yoga To The Rescue?
Yoga is one of the best exercises for seniors to remain flexible without the risk of injuries when engaging in high impact exercises. Don’t be fooled by Yoga’s gentle movement, it’s very effective in making your bones and muscles strong.
