Physical activity prolongs independence
not join a walking club or a seniors club? This type of organization offers diverse activities to keep their members in good physical condition. All you need to do in order to increase your feeling of well-being is to incorporate physical exercise into your daily life. What is important is to choose activities which you like and which will motivate you. And, above all, never hesitate to ask a health professional for advice.
It is a well known fact that physical activity has a beneficial effect on our health. No matter what your age, staying active contributes to both physical and mental well-being. Seniors who are active, who stretch on a regular basis and work their muscles, have a much better chance of maintaining their independence. Maintaining good habits doesn’t necessarily mean running 10 kilometres or doing 20 lengths of the pool every day. Even the smallest physical effort counts. At home it’s possible to do a whole range of physical activities. Planning three or four stretching exercises a week is already a good start. Cleaning the cabinets, vacuuming the carpets, washing the floors are all good opportunities to work your muscles. Canada’s Physical Activity Guide recommends that people suffering from arthritis or osteoporosis go for regular walks or take aquafitness, line dancing or tai chi classes. Those who do not have good balance could practice simple yoga movements, stretching as well as exercises to strengthen their ankles. Why
We’re never too old to have beautiful teeth!
Regular visits to the dentist are a good idea, no matter how old we are. To keep our teeth beautiful and our gums healthy, all we have to do is take care of them. Even though their needs change over the years, seniors should continue to see a professional periodically either for a routine check-up or a treatment. Brushing and use of dental floss are the two most important habits to persevere with in order to have healthy teeth. The Canadian Dental Association suggests twice daily brushings as well as a daily cleaning with dental floss. This routine will help remove any plaque, which causes tooth decay, and will keep gums healthy.
It is as important to take care of dental prostheses as natural teeth. They also should be cleaned on a daily basis. Use a brush with soft bristles to clean the gums or a clean, damp cloth, which can be wrapped around a finger. It is also recommended to soak prostheses overnight in a warm solution consisting of water and white vinegar or a cleaning product for prostheses. Your specialist will recommend having your prosthesis adjusted from time to time. As for dental implants, they require gentler cleaning using both a toothbrush and dental floss. Good oral hygiene, regular check-ups at the dentist and professional advice will help you keep your beautiful smile.
