By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via www.exerciseforbalance.com

  Many older individuals struggle with feeling tired and generally weak, which can be minimized by staying safely active through practicing  senior balance exercises. Please see more at    http://www.exerciseforbalance.com/buy-now Muscle weakness can be a common syndrome in later years. Additionally, declining balance abilities can lead those in the aging population to become more sedentary. Unfortunately, the more sedentary you are the weaker you become. This downward spiral can also be effected by a general fear of falling. Furthermore, there are several lifestyle changes that older adults adopt that further leads to weakness and a les active lifestyle. As an example, some people have lifestyle habits that rob them of energy. Here are some things that may be a drag on you:
  • Staying up too late. A good night’s sleep is important to feeling refreshed and energetic. Try going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.
  • Having too much caffeine. If you drink caffeinated drinks like soda, tea, or coffee late in the day, it can keep you from having a good night’s sleep. Limit the amount of caffeine you take during the day and have non-caffeinated drinks in the evening.
  • Drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol changes the way you think and act. It may also interact with your medical treatments. Be careful with the amount you drink.
  • Eating junk food. Say “no thanks” to food with empty calories like chips and cookies. You need nutritious food in order to have the energy to do the things you enjoy.
  • Skipping your exercise session and leading a sedentary life. Medical science has proven that exercise boosts your emotional well being as well as your energy level.
       In order to participate safely in fitness regimes as well as activities of daily living, healthcare professionals like doctors, physicians assistants and physical therapists recommend that aging individuals perform senior balance exercises every day to build needed stability and minimize the potential of a fall.
