Older adults must take steps to ensure that they have a consistent exercise routine to stay fit and healthy. This is the opinion of Anna Mason, founder of Distance Dieters, who explained that the "most effective" exercise is that which is done regularly. "Exercise at least three times each week but preferably each day for a minimum of 15 minutes," she recommended. For those just beginning physical activity, they should ensure that they choose a style that helps to boost the cardiovascular system, such as jogging, cycling and walking. Maintaining a robust cardiovascular system is important for older adults, as it promotes heart health and gets blood pumping to vital parts of the body, such as the brain. Ensuring that the brain has an ample supply of blood passing through it is key in staving off dementia and preventing stroke. However, in the quest for an exercise routine to improve health, older adults must not forget to choose an activity they enjoy. Find the nearest Barchester care home.
