September Tips of the Month: Healthy
and exercise that you like and stick with it. Engage in 30
minutes of exercise daily. Exercise is important because it
strengthens bones, muscles, and the heart. Exercise will also
allow you to drive your motor vehicle longer and safer. Take any
medications as prescribed and do not drink alcohol with your
medications. Check with your physician prior to starting your
exercise routine. Your physician may give you specific exercises
for ankle strengthening, hip flexor, and/or quadriceps muscle
Stay in close contact with friends and family. Broaden your
social environment by volunteering through local volunteer
groups, religious organizations, or civic groups.
Keep your mind exercised by reading, doing crossword puzzles or
learning a new skill. It is never too late to start a new hobby.
