Sports
A regularly and continuously more active and energetic life style should be adopted. The activities that are performed for at least 30-minute periods at least 3 days of the week, and if possible every day, will pave the way for a healthier life. It is not necessarily required to go to a sports center; going for a walk and climbing up the stairs will be enough to set our life in motion. Let’s walk longer distances every day, let’s take the lift less every day, and let’s use the escalator less every day.

The studies conducted show that there is not a specific age for starting to exercise and even small improvement in strength reduces the risk of death. Simple and regular walks can prolong the life in the elderly. The strong individuals have a lower rate of mortality compared to the individuals with less strength even if they may have hypertension or bad habits.

Resistance exercises are important for the elderly since such exercises are the only way to recover the reduced muscle mass, bone density and strength and to decrease deterioration.

Flexibility exercises reduce the impaired imbalance and muscle stiffness induced by old age.
