Movement for Better Living


Active Aging is the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance Quality of Life as people age” (World Health organization, 2002)
Wellness is encouraged through Physical Activity. Active individuals tend to be happier and deal with chronic disease and health challenges better.
Maintaining an active lifestyle and incorporating movement into everyday living actually helps remove the DIS from DISABILITY and results in a pleasantly surprising new found ABILITY!
Positive points of movement and activity in everyday life include:
1) good for sleep 2) decreases depression and anxiety                  3) decreases pain and improves physical function 4) decreases likelihood of developing disability 5) slows the decline in functional independence as we age 6) improves balance, strength, coordination 7) reduces the risk of cardiovascular
disease.
We all know we can't stop the aging process, but we can make choices that improve our ability to maintain an active life, to do the things we enjoy, and to spend time with loved ones.
