We are all biological machines. It makes sense that moving your body and mind on a regular basis keeps it from seizing up.
The old adage “if you don’t move it you lose it” is true! It does not have to mean spending hours at the gym. There are many activities to do in the guise of “exercise”. Do the things you love. Taking a walk around the block, making gentle movements to your favorite music, doing yoga stretches. All these things keep our bodies active and happy.
Try to keep your mind moving too. Play board or card games, do the crossword or other puzzles. An active and healthy body and mind is always going to help with happy aging.
