At Pacifica Senior Living, we know the importance of getting active and staying healthy, especially as you age. Keeping moving and staying fit is key to maintaining health in seniors, and there are many simple ways we encourage our residents to keep active.
Moving for just ten minutes can get your blood pumping and is great for maintaining heart and vascular health. Increasing your heart rate during active intervals can decrease its overall rate over time, as well as lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. Increasing your blood flow can also work to keep your immune system strong and healthy, to help fight off sicknesses or common colds.
