Older Adults Can Get Exercise Through Everyday Tasks
A study by the London’s College University found that seniors can enjoy the same benefits of rigorous exercise when performing regular leisure-time activities. These activities can include biking, gardening, walking, or doing housework or home maintenance. Researchers explain that participants experienced improvements in both physical and mental health, without having to endure cardio or other intensive gym workouts. The study found that engaging in these moderate exercise activities as low as 2.5 hours per week contributed to healthy aging among participants.
