5 Benefits of Exercise for Seniors

The mental health benefits of exercise are nearly endless. Exercise acts as a stress reliever and leaves you feeling happy and satisfied.
- Decreased risks of falls
Exercise improves strength and flexibility which also help improve balance and coordination, reducing the risk of falls.
- Social engagement
The key is to find a form of exercise you love and it will never feel like a chore again.
