|Description:||After having secured her footwear, and applied sunscreen to her sun-exposed skin, this woman was finally able to set out on her daily walk on this sunny Georgia day. Her walk would not be a long one, for it appears that she’d brought no water bottle with her in order to avoid the effects of possible dehydration.|
As an older adult, regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can prevent many of the health problems that seem to come with age. It also helps your muscles grow stronger so you can keep doing your day-to-day activities without becoming dependent on others.
Not doing any physical activity can be bad for you, no matter your age or health condition. Keep in mind, some physical activity is better than none at all. Your health benefits will also increase with the more physical activity that you do.
