Keeping physically active not only improves your health and quality of life it can also help you to live longer. It’s never too early or too late to start doing some exercise and staying fit.

Physical activity means anything from everyday tasks, like cleaning the house, heavy gardening or walking the dog, through to specific exercise like keep fit, swimming, golf, football, gym-based activity or tennis. The best type of activity is one that makes you feel slightly warmer and breathe a bit heavier, and that gets your heart and pulse pumping faster than usual. When you work out in a gym you can monitor your heart rate, speed and have the help & support of qualified staff.

Some of the benefits of keeping active include:

  • a reduced risk of developing a life-threatening disease
  • a greater likelihood of maintaining or reaching a healthy weight
  • a greater sense of well-being
  • improved sleep and increased day-time vitality

If you stay physically active, you’re also likely to stay independent longer. Exercise can make you stronger. You’ll feel more confident and involved in life. Remember, before beginning a new exercise regime, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor first. Your local doctor is also a good place to start to learn about exercise for your health.

The risks of physical inactivity
Inactivity puts you at greater risk of:

  • heart disease
  • some cancers
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis, leading to fractures (half the number of hip fractures could be avoided with regular physical activity)
  • obesity and related health problems

 

Getting started

If you haven’t exercised in years – and it’s estimated that four out of ten people over 50 do little or no exercise – then start gently and build up gradually. If you’re exercising for you first time or are unsure if you should try a particular activity, talk to your doctor GP.
