Mobility, Mind, and Mood

Exercise is a powerful tool for healthy aging of the body and the mind. The most important thing you can do to protect your mind is to move your body!

According to the Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation, regular physical exercise can reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by up to 50 percent. Exercise can also slow further deterioration in those who have already started to develop cognitive decline.

Find an activity you enjoy such as hiking, bicycling, chair exercises, dancing, swimming, water aerobics, yoga, or try something new. When your mobility choice is something you enjoy, the effects can improve your mood, your mind, and your body.
