Did you know that many people slow down and become sedentary as they age? That’s right, they sure do and I know what it’s like to start feeling sluggish as the years go by. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can easily avoid that trap. We don’t have to let our age stop us from moving and grooving.
The body is forever changing, shifting and evolving as time rolls on and we have to continually learn what to do for it to keep it in balance and prevent the slow down.
Regardless of age an active lifestyle will give you longevity and allow you to take more control over your health.
Kick it up any way you can because physical activity will boost your energy, allow you to maintain independence, protect your heart, and help you to manage symptoms related to health conditions that cause pain. But there are many other things you can do to stay energized and performing at your best. For example, try the following…
1. Try Mindfulness Techniques
When exercising, many people just zone out. However, focusing on how your body feels as you work out is best. Pay attention to your rhythmic breathing, feel your muscles flex with each movement, and be in the moment. Not only can mindfulness help you physically, but it can also help you mentally. It can help relieve stress and anxiety.
2. Listen to Your Body
Exercising should be a fun activity and not something you dread doing. Always listen to what your body is telling you. If you become dizzy or short of breath, stop your workout routine. If you sustain any injuries while working out or experience regular pain and discomfort, start out more slowly and work yourself up to more frequent workouts after discussing all this with your doctor.
3. Support Your Activity Levels With Good Nutrition
Keeping fit and energetic doesn’t stop at just physical activity. You also have to support your new activity levels with the right nutrition. Reduce the amount of processed carbohydrates you consume and choose better snacking options throughout the day. Instead of reaching for a bag of chips, grab some nuts or seeds to snack on instead.
4. Stay Motivated
To stop yourself from becoming discouraged, focus on short-term goals and reward yourself when you complete your workout successfully. This is good both physically and mentally. When rewarding yourself, choose something you look forward to doing.
5. Get Plenty of Rest
Finally, one of the biggest tips I have for you is to be sure to get enough rest. Something as simple as sleep can give you the energy boost you need. Try to get seven to eight hours of sleep each night to repair and build muscles and allow your body the chance to recover and boost stored energy.
