PROCEED WITH CAUTION
Most fender benders are caused by the lack of awareness. When driving in or out of the lot be cautious of other drivers. Be mindful when backing up or driving through the lot at a excess rate of speed. When dropping off, please do not block the walkway or block the drive way so other cars are not waiting on the streets to enter the lot. Remember the “blind spot”!
FITNESS FOR EVERYONE
Being fit is to be physically healthy and strong. The benefits are physical, mental, and social. Everyone including people into their nineties can improve their health with exercise and living an active lifestyle. Being fit can prevent an early death. In fact, being unfit is a bigger risk factor than obesity. Fit overweight people live longer than unfit thin people. Physically active people are less likely to suffer from cognitive decline and dementia.
You can be physically fit by getting and staying in shape by exercising and making a fitness plan that works for YOU. Individuals work out at different levels with different goals. Keep in mind how you look and feel can be just as important as what a monitor or scale tells you. Overdoing it can lead to injuries, burn out and persistent fatigue.
Improving and maintaining aerobic fitness is a goal at any age. It gives you the stamina to live the life you desire. Try to get 150-180 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise or 75-90 minutes high intensity aerobic exercise weekly. Spreading it out throughout the week is best. Fitness levels can vary between individuals so work at a level that works for you.
Don’t let your muscles wither with age. Keep your muscles strong by doing strength training exercises twice a week and eating adequate protein daily. Protein needs increase as you age. Having strong muscles and the vitality they provide make life more enjoyable, giving you the capacity to get the most out of each and every day. Strong muscles will keep you independent.
Finally, just be active. Avoid being a “couch potato”. Anything that increases heart rate and works your muscles will improve your fitness health. This includes leisure activities -- hiking, bike riding, swimming or household chores -- leaf raking, gardening or mowing the lawn.
Please exercise and eat responsibly.
