Older Adult Wellness: Active Aging
Sept. 22 to 28 is Active Aging Week sponsored by the International Council on Active Aging. The week is a time to celebrate living an active, healthy and engaged lifestyle. Often times as people age, they become paralyzed by a case of “I used to be able to…” Overwhelmed by what they are no longer able to do, they shut down and don’t participate in what they enjoy. Rather than let the memories of the past ensnare you by focusing on what your body previously did, let the past spur you to discover and embrace the abilities you have today.
