Incorporating movement and staying active daily is key to remaining independent and fit in later years. As we age, being able to do simple things like hurrying across a street or even just getting dressed and out the door in the morning can become more difficult. One of the best ways to maintain fitness, flexibility and independence is to incorporate something as simple as daily walking.
While you may think it would take at least an hour a day, this study actually proved that an hour of walking a week, which breaks down to about 10 minutes a day, can protect against disability as we age. It’s actually what I recommend in Today is Still the Day.
Regardless of your age right now, if you are already an active person, keep it up. If you are currently inactive, this very small amount of intentional movement daily is simple preventative medicine!
Is 10 minutes of walking daily doable for you to maintain independence as you age?
