THE BENEFITS OF ADULTS STAYING ACTIVE
As we get older, our bodies change. Our metabolism slows down as we age which leads to weight gain, fatigue or lack of energy, physical stiffness and general weakness. Bones lose density and can result in diagnosis of osteoporosis. The good news is we have a way to combat and slow down this from happening.
An active life is vital to stay fit and healthy. Vigorous activities, like running not only helps people with changing your mood and helps with mental health issues, but it can also improve body strength and balance. Running can also prevent or delay diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, or osteoporosis. There is also research to support running may improve cognitive function (how the way the brain works).
