Cold weather is coming and that usually means joint discomfort, especially for seniors. Unfortunately as we grow older, the mindset kicks in that we can't do much anymore. Whether it's osteoporosis or other health concerns, growing up has a lot of people tuning out of exercise.

This is a problem for a number of reasons. Not only does exercise help prevent a number of ailments we don't want when we're older but it can actually help deal with some of them too. According to a study in Population Health Management, exercise showed improved quality of life and lowered impairments for seniors who participated in physical activity.

It's important to note that not only were the scores for physical well being higher but emotional health was too. And that's not something everyone thinks about. With the focus being on young minds developing mental illness, senior dementia is often left until it's too late.

We've written about it before but to recap, exercise may play a role in delaying the onset of Alzheimer's and dementia. Exercise improves brain function and memory. For seniors who find themselves forgetting where they put things or those suffering from dementia, exercise is a great way to increase mental awareness.

Even You Can Do It


You may be backing off the idea of exercise because of pre-existing conditions but consider this:

  • Weight-bearing exercises help strengthen bones for better support against osteoporosis
  • Aerobic and resistance exercise can improve function without exacerbating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Strength and power training may reduce falls and improve functionality in patients with diabetes
  • Metabolic and anti-inflammatory responses improve with regular exercise

  • Some of those seem a lot more intimidating than they actually are. Weight training doesn't mean lifting dumbbells at the gym, it can be as simple as lifting a water bottle with your routine. And resistance training means pushing against something that makes the exercise harder, like running in water (which is great for your joints).

    While you may have had nice weather to walk or use the pool, colder weather means you have an excuse to stay inside and be careful of slick ice. But you don't have to stay inactive this winter. We've got simple exercises you can preform anywhere and a few minutes a day can greatly impact your health, balance and frame of mind.
