LAC Meld body, mind aerobics for better health

Posted November 11, 2016 in Articles

We joke about it, but in reality, our struggles with solutions to losing those extra pounds that creep up on us as we age are frustrating. Take heart: You can fight back with exercise, and your brain and memory will thank you.

Muscles deteriorate as we age and don’t repair as quickly as they used to, contributing to the increase in fat we store in our bodies. Experts at Menorah Park’s Peter B. Lewis Aquatic & Therapy Center recommend exercise and light weights to make muscles stronger and promote weight loss.

The center’s staff is leading the charge for active aging as the recipient of NuStep’s Silver Pinnacle Award, an international honor with ties to the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA). They’re teaming up with Menorah Park’s Center 4 Brain Health, the recipient of ICAA’s Innovators Achievement Award, to share benefits of getting your sweat on for your brain.

  • Exercise changes the brain in ways that protect memory and thinking skills
  • Regular aerobic exercise boosts the size of the hippocampus – the area of the brain involved with memory
  • Exercise improves everyday life skills
  • Exercise improves mood, self-esteem, happiness, energy and sleep, and reduces stress, fatigue, pain, depression and anxiety.
  • Even 10 minutes of exercise can change your brain, according to John Ratey, Harvard Medical School psychiatrist

If you have challenges such as pain associated with arthritis, or even fear of falling, our therapy experts are happy to help with suggestions and support.
