5 Ways To Stay Active As A Senior

As you age, staying healthy and active becomes even more important. You do not have to engage in strenuous exercise as there are different ways to enjoy staying active. Physical activities help keep your health in tip-top shape. Regardless of your fitness level, there are a lot of fun and low-cost activities to engage in. If you are living in an active senior living community such as Kissing Tree, there are even more fun activities available.

Besides promoting your physical well-being, exercise keeps your brain active, relieves stress and energizes your mood. Any amount of physical activity added to your day will give you significant benefits.

Walking and Hiking

Walking helps clear your mind and keep your whole body active. Even a short walk around a block or a running trail gives your heart and your lungs a worthy workout. A small hike will do the trick if you have been walking for a while, and there are plenty of hiking options at Kissing Tree.

Gardening

It’s great to get outdoors and garden in your own yard, and Kissing Tree is the perfect place for it. Plant a few vegetables and fruit for organic, healthy produce and enjoy working out in your garden year-round.

Senior Sports Activities

No need to check local community centers for activities – here at Kissing Tree in San Marcos, you can engage in golf, pickleball, horseshoes, bocce ball and yoga. There are always exercise classes for beginners so you can learn as you go.

Volunteering and Engaging in Local Activities

One of the great ways to stay active is to volunteer and attend local activities. You’ll meet new people, learn new things and have a great time. In Kissing Tree, for instance, you can join in social building activities, book discussions, dinners, seminars, happy hours and more resident events.

Start a Small Business

Start something small to keep you afloat. From your retirement savings, identify a market gap from the neighborhood and start a small business. With all the free time you have after retirement, it’s easy to start and run a successful business. What’s more, in a good community, there are always business ideas.
