7 Tips for Senior Fitness this Summer

This summer, get fit and active with these easy-to-follow tips – and have fun in the process!

The summertime is an amazing time to create new goals and instill new routines in your life – or the life of the senior in your care. Gone are the blustery days of winter, the unpredictable weather patterns of early spring, and any excuses for not getting fit. It is summer, and that means it is the perfect time to create the healthiest body and mind possible. Follow the seven tips below to get fit and add life to your years:

Get checked out: Any fitness program should start with a quick trip to a healthcare professional to assess your current physical state. Beyond a normal checkup, this visit can gauge your ability to handle the stresses of dietary changes, new fitness routines, and other modifications to your summer wellness regimen.

Lift weights: We’re not suggesting that you slap on the iron weights and go for maximum weight on the bench press station – rather, support good muscle development and help to prevent bone density loss by completing moderate strengthening exercises several times per week. Bone density loss is a real concern for many seniors – especially considering that slips and falls are a leading cause of injury for those over 65. Broken bones may still occur, but by working to reduce the onset of bone density loss, you’ll minimize the dangers associated with falling.

Drink water: The heat of the summer demands a greater water intake than during other times of the year, and proper hydration is the foundation for good health and wellness. Current water intake guidelines suggest 13 cups of water per day for men, and 9 cups per day for women. This is the recommended amount as specified by the Mayo Clinic, an authority on good health.

Swim for endurance: Running may be great for cardiovascular endurance, but it is also hard on the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the body. Instead, cool off during the heat of the day and simultaneously complete a vigorous workout by swimming laps in the local pool. Some neighborhoods offer pools for this purpose, or you can investigate your local rec center or fitness club.

Turn fun into fitness: Find something that you like to do – dancing, Tai Chi, yoga, or virtually any other physical activity, and commit to doing it at least once per week. You’ll complete a workout as you scoot across the dance floor, hold poses during yoga, or slide gracefully through Tai Chi – and the social aspect is great for mental health and overall wellbeing.

Stretching for flexibility: Start each day (and end each one, for that matter) with a round of slow, controlled stretches that will loosen the muscles and enhance overall flexibility, strength, balance and endurance. Stretching should never be painful, so take it easy and stop immediately if you feel any pain.

Sleep: Regardless of the season, getting enough sleep must become a core component of your wellness routine. Getting fit this summer is made all the more likely if you commit to getting a good night’s sleep. If you’re adding a new workout routine this summer, adequate rest will help your body to recover effectively – preventing soreness and possible muscle damage.

This summer, treat yourself to better health and wellness by creating a safe, comfortable, and fun fitness plan that will improve your sense of wellbeing and overall health.

Top tips for buying the right couch for your new home

What to consider when purchasing a couch for your new space

The best part of having a new home is getting a chance to decorate and refurbish! One of the most important pieces you need is a couch. You need to make sure it’s comfortable and appropriate for your lifestyle, but it should also be stylish and aesthetically in tune with your home decor and design!

Read on for some exciting tips, which will help you choose the best couch for your new home!

Measure your space

Nothing is worse than getting a brand new couch, and then having to send it back because you got the measurements wrong. Make it a point to take accurate measurements of where you want the new couch to go, and purchase a couch that will fit snugly in that space.
Even if your couch fits, you don’t want to choose something that dominates your living room or feels too constrictive. This is your home, not a game of Tetris!

Research

You can narrow down your search for a couch if you know what material, texture, and pattern you want. Consider your situation and needs: If you have pets or children, for example, search for information on couches that are durable, scratch-resistant and easy to clean up. If you take time to gather as much information as possible, you’ll be happy in the long run.

Design

If you already have other furniture, accessories, and painted walls, you need to be careful when selecting the color, style, and patterns of your couch. Without considering the existing aesthetics in your space, you could get stuck with a horrible clash of tones that don’t blend well together!
