Healthy Mind & Body
Do these statistics surprise you?
How do you spend your free time? While 55% of seniors reportedly spend their leisure time watching TV, only 3% of Americans over 65 exercise regularly. Staying fit requires time and energy, and though there’s no harm in catching a summer blockbuster or watching a game, nothing is more important than your health! This summer, commit to a healthy mind and body by getting out in the sun and participating in some of these cheap (or free!) activities:
Get involved – Help with the July 4th parade and fireworks at your local town center.
Find a farm – Pick your own fruit at berry patches and produce stands.
Enjoy a fair – Nothing says “summer” and “old-fashioned fun” quite like carnival games and people-watching at the state fair.
Visit a state park – Find a National State park near you.
Get Dirty – Plant a small garden and have fresh, healthy veggies all summer.
Walk-a-thon – Get in shape and support a good cause in a local walk for charity.
