Health Tip: Seniors Shouldn't See Exercise as a Chore

Fun ways to get active

(HealthDay News) -- Exercise is healthy at any age, particularly to seniors. Making exercise fun can help you stick with your program.

The Weight-loss Information Network makes these suggestions:

  • Figure out activities that you enjoy, such as walking with a buddy or group.
  • Plant a garden and work in it regularly.
  • Perform short bursts of exercise, such as three 10-minute walks.
  • Vary your exercise routine each day so you don't get bored.
  • If you don't like exercising outdoors, join a gym or fitness center.
