The Importance Of Living An Active Lifestyle

An active lifestyle is good for your heart, brain and body, and is necessary for adults working to maintain their independence as they age. Adults who are physically active for 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week may see significant benefits, including:

  • A reduced risk of developing dementia and depression

  • Decreased anxiety, blood pressure and insomnia

  • Improved balance and coordination, lowering fall risks

  • A reduced risk of developing arthritis, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and certain cancers

  • It’s perfect after a day of off-roading or gardening…Every active senior should be so lucky to have one. - Martha C., Claremore, OK

  • Getting out [of the bath], I could walk stronger and my lower back did not force me to stoop while walking...I was almost in tears with relief and amazement. - John & Nancy D., North Las Vegas, NV

At-Home Wellness For Maintaining An Active Lifestyle

Support your active lifestyle with an at-home wellness routine for rest, relaxation and injury prevention.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy

Unwinding in a warm bath or shower after periods of physical activity can ease muscle tension, hydrate the skin and quiet the mind. Alleviate pain and health conditions with water pressure and heat, and use hydrotherapeutic jets to target pain points.

How Hydrotherapy Can Treat Poor Circulation »

Hydration

Rehydrate after exercise with a cool drink of water. To avoid dehydration, drink 8 ounces of water within 30 minutes of completing physical activity. It’s also important to rehydrate your skin; add Epsom salt to a post-workout bath for its restorative and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tips For Starting An Active Lifestyle

  1. Take It Slow

    Exercise at your level. If you’re new to physical activity, start by gently stretching and walking. Build up your stamina with low-impact, low-intensity activities, then slowly increase the length and intensity of your workouts over time.

  2. Find What Works For You

    A regular exercise routine is easier to maintain if you enjoy it! Test out varying types of physical activity to find what feels best and is most sustainable. Explore individual exercise or group classes, and try working out at different times of day.

  3. Prioritize Balance

    Physical activity is just one component of a healthy, active lifestyle. It’s important to remember that self-care can come in multiple forms, and taking time to rest and reset is essential. Listen to your body—when it needs a break, give it one.

Remember to consult your doctor before beginning a new fitness regimen to ensure your safety.
