As you get older, it’s important to stay active. Regular physical activity can help keep you healthy and strong. Physical activity offers many benefits for older women:
Balance exercises are important for all women, but especially older women who are at a higher risk of falls. This includes women who have had falls in the recent past or have trouble walking. Researchers know that doing balance and muscle-strengthening activities for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes a week helps lower the chance that you will fall down and hurt yourself. Examples of these exercises include tai chi, walking backward, and standing from a sitting position.3
Getting active can help you live a longer, healthier life. Learn exercises and stretches you can do at any age to improve your health.
