For older adults, the key to healthy aging is regular physical activity. Being active protects and prevents older adults from health issues associated with aging. Physical activity sustains independence deepening our ability to continue doing activities necessary for daily living.
If you are unable to do 150 minutes of activity a week, try to be as physically active as your ability and condition(s) allow. Remember that all movement counts and we should aim to sit less and move more!
