Walk With Your Loved Ones Around Mornington Peninsula
Walking is an easy, simple activity that anyone can enjoy, and one that keeps you physically active. Your elderly loved ones, in particular, can reap a lot of benefits from walking. And if they’re enjoying retirement living on the Mornington Peninsula, they will appreciate you taking the time to walk with them!
Walking is a great exercise for seniors as it helps them avoid a sedentary lifestyle, increasing their strength and improving their overall health. It improves their heart health by getting the heart rate up daily, helping to reduce risks of high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Walking after eating also lowers blood sugar levels, as the body uses the blood sugar to more efficiently strengthen muscles. Chronic pains caused by arthritis and other such conditions are also reduced with the constant movement walking requires. There could be lesser back pains as well as better abdominal strength.
If you walk with your elderly loved one, you also give them the opportunity to socialise and enjoy the environment. It will lift their spirits and significantly improve their mood, making them far happier than just sitting around at home. This positivity boosts their mental health too, as endorphins are released.
