Exercise and physical activities are the top priorities when it comes to maintaining and improving one’s health. However, exercises need to be structured to a person’s needs. For example, if you have joint problems then running may not be ideal. Finding the right exercise plan for you is the key to a better and safer lifestyle change. Let us help you find the right exercise!
- Swimming and Water Aerobics
Being around water is a good choice for those with joint problems. The buoyancy of water lessens pressures on joints. However, the density and resistance of the water still strengthen the muscles around the joints. Swimming is also a great way to exercise the lungs. Swimming serves as a whole body exercise and is considered the least harmful choice with minimal risk of injury.
- Walking/Light Running/Jogging
The benefit of these exercises is that it can be done anywhere, anytime. You simply need to go out and do it. It is great to strengthen the bones, retain joint elasticity, and boost heart health as it exercises your cardiorespiratory organs.
This type of exercise is preferred by those who do not like exercise. Dancing is a fun way to remain active. You can enjoy it at home, alone or with the company of friends. It would not even be like exercise while you’re doing it!
- Meditation and Yoga
Meditation and Yoga are great choices for those who are not fond of vigorous exercises. These exercises help loosen out the tension and stress in the body.
