Physical activity is a fundamental component of maintaining good health. Unfortunately, cold weather can be a difficult time for elderly people to stay physically active as everybody wants to stay in and hibernate. Remember that the benefit of engaging in some form of exercise during the short, dreary days of winter is crucial for maintaining mental well-being and physical health. Check out your community recreation centre for classes such as gentle yoga or leisure swimming. Depression is one of the side effects of cloudy days so, don’t let cold days stop you from going out and being active.
