As we get older, it can often seem more difficult for us to get motivated and exercise, but now that the summer weather has arrived it is more challenging to resist the warm and enticing, outdoor world. This summer, instead of spending it in front of a computer or a television screen, take the opportunity to connect with nature while also getting some exercise.
Summer Exercises for Seniors
There are many exercises that seniors can do, including anything from:
- Taking a nice stroll early in the morning or during the evening when the sun is lower in the sky: we recommend walking through vibrant neighborhoods, through forests, and along coasts, if you are capable;
- Swimming: with this activity you will not only improve your cardio, endurance, and flexibility, but also cool off from the hot summer weather; or
- Yoga: especially if you have stress in your bones and joints or just want to improve your mind and body.
The truth of the matter is that if you do not exercise you may develop both short-term problems, like arthritis, and more serious long-term problems that could ultimately have irreversible complications. These summer exercises are meant to help seniors improve their health and well-being.

The families we serve keep saying great things.
I just wanted to tell you how grateful we are that Neighborly Home Care stepped in & took over taking care of my Dad when we really needed it, no questions asked. Our caregiver has become part of the family and we know we can depend on her being there every day & taking great care of my Dad. He misses her when she’s not there!
