Senior Balance Exercises For Daily Chores

   You can make your every day chores a bit safer by starting with senior balance exercises. Please see Every day older individuals face the challenge of daily chores including cooking, cleaning the kitchen, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, washing windows, picking up clutter off the floor and so much more. Medical researchers have found that aging individuals that participate in daily chores  and get up and move frequently throughout the day tend to be more active and independent as they proceed later in life. Recently, a study was published regarding the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For the study, subjects wore ultra-sensitive activity trackers, called accelerometers, for seven days, generating data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control. For these same people, the agency then tracked mortality for the next eight years. The results were striking. The least active people were five times more likely to die during that period than the most active people and three times more likely than those in the middle range for activity. “When we compare people who exercise the same amount, those who sit less and move around more tend to live longer. The medical researchers recommended that the older adults in this study begin their daily activities with senior balance exercises to minimize the risk of falling with any of their movements.
