Health Advisory - Exercise and Social Activity May Prolong Life



Current research is indicating exercise can extend your life even if you are already in your golden years or 75 years or older. Experts are saying even setting up and sticking to a regular walking program will make a major difference. The less active someone is later in life the more benefit you will receive by just adding a small amount of exercise to your daily routine.

 

A new Swedish study found people older than 75 who were physically active and took part in social activities lived an average of 5.4 years longer than their less active contemporaries. This is a major positive to motivate folks to get physically and socially active. The findings also showed even at age 85 or older a physically active and social lifestyle was associated with adding an extra 4 years of longevity.

 

Another recent study at the Karolina Institute lead by Debora Rizzuto followed both men and women age 75 or older for an 18 year span of time. All participants at the beginning of the study answered numerous questions. The published results make a strong suggestion that encouraging good lifestyle behaviors even at older age levels may extend a person's life. Obviously there are no guarantees but provides all of us food for thought!  

 

The favorable lifestyle factors include keeping a full social life and network; regular exercise; maintaining normal weight; not smoking ( Duh) and not drinking alcohol.

 

This information is included in a recent edition of Tufts University Health and Nutrition newsletter. This is an excellent nerwsletter to subscribe to for valuable health information and data.

 

Tufts has stated that in the US fewer than 10 % of the population of adults meet the established guidelines of at least 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity exercise or 75 minutes of very vigorous intensity physical exercise. How do you measure up against this exercise guideline? I meet and exceed these guidelines plus I  have since I started by regular workout routine over 3 years ago. photo 3 (375x500)ip.jpg

Bob,

I hope more people head this great advice.

We have always taken great care of our bodies and what goes in them.  And we have been into Yoga all our married lives.  I also think that having a happy marriage is also a great aspect of having a happy healthy life. A

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert - We are off to excellent start. My musceles are saying we hurt right now.. LOL.. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I agree with waht you are saying. I think the socializing aspect involves having a partner or spouse and certainly love plays into it the whole concept. Yoga is wonderful.. I tried a few new poses today but of course I had to tear out the page from Yoga journal and take it with me so I could try to copy!!

Great information, Bob.  I am doing my best with the exercise.  Though, not so good with the social interaction.

I try my best to get as much exercise as I can daily, sometimes I hike, sometimes I play tennis and I wish I still played basketball, but I sure don't have the stamina for that anymore, haha.

I try to walk 4 1/2 miles a day and the walk increases my energy level.

Good luck and success.

I made a pact with some friends to do a big hike with them this summer. I started training just after Christmas, but this dang weather has made it difficult to get into a steady routine.

A farm hand in Florida looked tired on a critric tree cutting branches. The land owner asked him" Charlie you look tired. How long you have been working on the farm? "Sir, 85 years so far."  What?  " I was 8 when my parents put me to work and I will be 94 soon.".   I think I need to find you a retirement home there. "That sounds good. But what am I going to do with myself?"
