Staying active in our older years can help keep us healthy and independent for longer. Research shows that any exercise, at any age, can help to improve our health and well-being.
Being active every day can help to:
- maintain a healthy weight
- improve your strength and fitness
- keep you independent and able to do the day-to-day activities
- prevent or reduce the severity of chronic disease
- provide social connection
- improve your confidence and sense of wellbeing.
