If you like going to the gym or taking classes, it can be hard to get motivated to work out when it’s just you at home. But remember: A regular fitness routine helps you protect your mobility and keep up your strength. Staying active isn’t just good for your body; it’s good for your life.
Looking for other ideas to stay active? How about starting in your yard? Gardening is a great way to stay active. Yard work takes a lot of energy and keeps you moving. Taking a walk or short bike ride are great ways to get moving, too. Just make sure to get outside in the morning or evening to avoid the heat.
