The effort to preserve a flexible figure is also a sign that we do not give up the ongoing struggle to slow down aging. Our skin and appearance are a true reflection of our proper state of health.

Sport is real medicine

A number of studies show that sport is a real medicine – among other things, it is effective
also for chronic diseases (e.g. diabetes, asthma, depression, etc.).

His benefactions

All kinds of sports activities contribute to the maintenance of the joints. If we regularly do some kind of sport and move enough, our joints become less “rusty” and thus move more “oiled”. The “lazier” we are, especially after age, the more difficult our movements become, and our muscles weaken, the so-called they become deconditioned, their fitness decreases.

Research has shown that physical activity also stimulates brain function, relieves stress, and can also be an immune booster. The effect is enhanced if we do sports in the open air, where we do any physical exercise. According to a recent discovery by Japanese psychologists, e.g. “Forest bathing” (e.g. hiking in the forest, exercising in the forest) even has disease-preventing properties.

Goals to be achieved

At least 30 minutes of physical activity per day (brisk walking, walking, cycling, swimming, gymnastics) is essential. But if we don’t want our backs and knees to ache, we’d better follow the principle of gradualness. In case of pain or muscle fever, wait until it passes, and only then gradually start new sports activities and exercise.

In this case, the body “wakes up”, shortness of breath decreases, and we can even try strength sports (if we can, for 45 minutes without interruption), which improve breathing and condition.
