Kleenex Review- Your Nose Knows The Best

Sorry to be kind of gross, but how many times have you blown your nose and wound up with snot in your hands because the cheap tissue you used was more like onion skin? (Actually, I think onion skin may do a better job if you could handle the smell!) Anyway, I have to admit this has happened to me on more than one occasion. Maybe you, like me, were thinking “Why didn’t I just used my hands and then wipe the snot on my pants legs or something convenient near by?”

I remember once when the wife and I were at church and suddenly, without warning, she yanked a tissue out of my shirt pocket! I guess she needed a tissue badly and she needed it “right now!” I had to tell her afterwards that it was an “ABB” tissue – you know, “already been blown.” She was so desperate that she didn’t even care! Anyway, my point is, we’ve probably all had times when we were desperate for a tissue.

Well, I am going to tell you about a product called Kleenex Tissues that can save you and I from all that aggravation of having our nasal discharge on our hands, whether it be from a cold or allergy that I have every so often. Here is what Kleenex has to offer in their best arsenal of tissues to fight the war on snot.

Trusted Care

Kleenex Is the standard of all tissues normally found in your home or maybe the office. Kleenex are signature soft and strong facial tissues that everyone loves. The styles of container-shapes it comes in are as follows: the upright tissue box, the flat tissue box, the perfect fit box, the go’ pack and the on-the-go slim pack.

Ultra Soft

When I have an allergy attack, I am looking for some soft tissues because I do not know when my attack will end (I’ve been known to sneeze 30 times in a very small amount of time) and I like a soft tissue for my poor nose. As the description says, Kleenex Tissues are 3-ply extra soft tissues that bring gentle care and relief. Once again, the styles for Ultra Soft Kleenex are: upright tissue box, flat tissue box, go-anywhere pack and slim wallet.

Soothing Lotion

Every so often, when I have a very bad cold, my nose turns red like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and I am looking for something to soothe it. It’s Kleenex to the rescue with tissues that are infused with aloe and vitamin E. This style comes in two box styles: upright and flat.

Anti – Viral Tissues


Image result for amazon buy button
Here is a Kleenex that is great to have in cold and flu season or anytime you’re around a lot of sneezing and coughing people. The description says it kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses. (I wish they had these years ago – it may have saved me a lot of misery.) The anti-viral Kleenex Tissues come in just the upright box style.

Cooling Lotion

For those people with a sore nose brought on by various irritants that we can get, Kleenex is here to help you too. With a soothing facial tissue that is inundated with refreshing moisturizers and aloe. It also only comes in the upright tissue box at this time.

Hand Towels


Image result for amazon buy button
How many times did you need a hand towel and wound up using your shirt or pants instead? Kleenex Hand Towels are a nice alternative to bathroom towels. They are clean, fresh, and they promote hygiene and good health practices and they are small enough to take anywhere.

Wet Wipes


Image result for amazon buy button
This one is great if you have small children with messy faces or hands. It is good for sloppy adults too. No sink required! Just pull one out and it’s ready to go anywhere you need it. There are three types of wipes that come in flip-top packs: Gentle Clean Wipes, Germ Removal Wipes, and Sensitive Wipes. The Gentle Clean and Germ Removal wipes also come in packs of singles.

Closing Thoughts

If you find yourself in a sneezing or snotty situation run, don’t walk and get yourself some the best Kleenex tissues. Go on and buy some today. Trust me, you will want to have them handy when you need them! You will not regret it. I know I don’t. If you have some comments leave it below and tell me of what you think of Kleenex.

Oral B Review Review – Brighten with Your Best Smile

If you are like me, you’re looking for the best dental products on the market, which will do the job well to keep you from having oral hygiene or teeth problems and an extra trip to the dentist office. That brings me to Oral B – a company that wants you to have oral hygiene problem-free life with all of their wonderful products for us to browse through. Let me show you what they have to offer below.

Manual Toothbrushes


Image result for amazon buy button
If you happen to prefer the old-fashioned manual toothbrush, like I do, Oral B has a nice selection of eleven manual toothbrushes. I will give an overview of some of them. The first is, ALL-IN-ONE TOOTHBRUSH. Here are some of its features: perfectly angled criss-cross bristles at 16 degrees that remove up to 99% of plaque. Plus, it is gentle on enamel and gums.

Next is the PULSAR TOOTHBRUSH. This one has battery power soft bristles that vibrate and penetrate deep between teeth. Then it sweeps away plaque and food from the tooth surface and stimulates your gums. It too, is gentle on your teeth. Here is one you can brush to – it is called COMPACT CLEAN TOOTHBRUSH. It’s features are a comfort grip handle which is ergonomically developed, a precision control head that easily cleans all the parts of your mouth, and multi-flex cleaning tips to tenderly remove plaque.

The CLINICAL PRO-FLEX TOOTHBRUSH is another manual toothbrush with features like flexing sides that adjust to your teeth contours to remove more plaque – up to 93%. This toothbrush removes 34% of plaque at the gum line, reduces gingivitis for better gum health and works gently on enamel and gums. Finally, there is the 3D WHITE LUXE PRO-FLEX TOOTHBRUSH (is it like a 3D movie?) It’s features are a dual-flexing head design, blended with a unique Stain Eraser. These features work together to erase up to 90% of surface teeth stains and reveal a more shining white smile. Again, it is easy on the gums, but tough on stains.

Electric Toothbrushes


Image result for amazon buy button
Now if manual toothbrushes are to old fashion for ya, Oral B has four excellent electric toothbrushes to give your teeth an electric charge, so to speak. One is Oral B Pro 3000. It has an in-handle brushing timer which pulses every 30 seconds to let you know when to change to different areas of your mouth. It also has a visible pressure sensor which lights up to indicate when you are brushing too tough (the wife might find this feature great since she like to beat up her teeth and gums!)

How about this one Oral B Pro 6000. What does this one have to offer? Well, I’ll tell you. The brush head surrounds each tooth with bristles angled at 16 degrees, and the 3D cleaning action oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to break up plaque. This sounds interesting, don’t you think? It also has a built-in timer to help you brush for the dentist-recommended 2 minutes (this may also help the wife when she brushes her teeth as if she is on a mission or something!)

Next is the Oral B Pro 7000. Here are some of its features: one is six brushing modes; Daily Clean, Deep Clean, Whitening, Massage, Sensitive and Tongue Cleaning (that is cool I wonder if it talks to you too?). You may want to check this one out! Its advanced pressure-sensor technology alerts you if you’re brushing too hard and automatically decelerates the pulsation and oscillation speeds of the brush head.

Finally, the cream of the crop of electric toothbrushes is the ORAL-B GENIUS 9600. Let’s see what it has. First, its gum protection technology app improves the way you brush your teeth. It contains 3 Oral B replacement refills: 1 3D white, 1 3D gum care and 1 cross action, pro gum care refill. It carefully cleans the gum line without irritation, has 6 cleaning modes to brush based on your specific oral care goals, has position detection so you brush every area of your mouth for the right amount of time, and a newly designed charger, AND it is global voltage-enabled to allow great travel convenience (WOW what an interesting electric toothbrush) .

Replacement Brush Heads


Image result for amazon buy button
We’ve got to have replacement brush heads because sooner or later the brushes wear out from all that thorough brushing we do. Here are the replacement brush heads that fit those electric toothbrushes I mentioned above. They are: PRO GUMCARE

, CROSSACTION, PRECISION CLEAN, FLOSSACTION, 3D WHITE, SENSITIVE CLEAN, ORTHO CARE, DEEP SWEEP, and DUAL CLEAN. Oral B’s website gives a brief description of each unique function that each replacement brush head does for your convenience.

Kids Toothbrushes


Image result for amazon buy button
Now we need to start junior out with good oral hygiene habits the moment we parents get a chance or it might be a very long battle. Oral B has the children’s toothbrushes broken down by stages or years of age. They offer both manual and electric toothbrushes, depending on the age group. Stage 1 (2-24 months) is for tender gums. The only selection for this group is a manual toothbrush.

Stage 2 (2-4 years old) have manual and electric toothbrushes to choose from. Next is stage 3 (5-7 years old.) This stage also has manual and electric toothbrush with a floss added on too. Now this last children’s stage is called PRO HEALTH JR. (8-12 years old) with manual and electric toothbrushes plus floss. This is for big kids that want to feel more independent while still having fun brushing their teeth.

Battery Toothbrushes


Image result for amazon buy button
Battery toothbrushes are another option for people that do not like the other types of toothbrushes. Here is what they have to choose from: Clinical Battery Toothbrush, Complete Battery Toothbrush, 3D White Battery Toothbrush and Pro-Health Battery Powered Toothbrush.

Floss


Image result for amazon buy button
To finish the job of cleaning your teeth, you need to floss and Oral B has the flosser for you. It is called Glide. It comes in the following forms: string, floss pick, satin tape and super floss. Each of these will take tartar, plaque and gingivitis away.

Windup

Oral B is a great company that wants to keep your mouth and teeth healthy and happy all the days of your life. All the oral hygiene products they have will be sure to make your trip to the dentist for your check up just “a walk in the park” knowing your teeth and mouth are in best shape. So go and buy one or more of their products today. I think you will like the results!

 

Benefits of Good Oral Hygiene – Best way to keep you smiling

How many times, when you were a child, did your mother tell you to brush your teeth after meals, before you go to bed etc. I know my mother told me numerous times and some times it drove me crazy! How about you? Since then, of course, I came to learn, that, like usual, mother was right. So now I make an effort to keep my teeth clean so I can enjoy the best benefits of good oral hygiene and not see my teeth fall out. So now I will explain why oral health is so important and how to keep your mouth and teeth healthy.

Brush Your Teeth Twice A Day


Image result for amazon buy button
When you start brushing your teeth, take your time, about two to three minutes should do a great job. Next, do not forget to clean your tongue with your toothbrush.

What Causes Tooth Decay

The reason to brush your teeth at least twice a day is that there are bacteria that live in your mouth and when sugar is added from foods like bread, crackers, soda pop and anything else with sugar, it causes acids to form from the bacteria. These acids start to break down the enamel on your teeth. Dental plaque is then created from the bacteria which produces substances that irritate the gums and eventually can destroy your teeth.

What Equipment you need

You need a soft-bristled toothbrush that fits your mouth comfortably. Or better yet, a battery-operated or electric toothbrush. These will help reduce plaque and gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. The battery/electric brushes do a more thorough job than manual toothbrushes. For best results, it is also important that the toothpaste you use contain fluoride.

The Best Way to Hold Your Toothbrush

Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle. Then move the brush back and forth in small strokes. Next, brush the outer teeth, and then the inner and outer surface, plus the chewing surfaces. After that, use the tip of the brush to clean the inside surface of the front teeth. Brush with a gentle up-and-down stroke. Finally, make sure you brush your tongue to remove bacteria from it also as well as to refresh your breath.

Making Sure Everything is Clean After Use

First make sure to rinse your toothbrush with water every time you finish brushing your teeth. Then store your toothbrush in an upright position so it can air-dry. Attempt to keep your toothbrush from other toothbrushes in the same area to prevent cross-contamination. Do not cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, it can encourage the growth of mold, bacteria and yeast.

When it is Time to Replace Your Toothbrush

Get a new toothbrush or a replacement head for your battery-operated or electric brush four times a year, or maybe sooner if the bristles flay or become irregular. (My wife has a tendency to beat up her toothbrush, so she needs to replace her a little more often than most people.)

Flossing


Image result for amazon buy button
You don’t want to forget flossing, because it’s hard to reach the bacteria in the tight spaces between your teeth and under the gum line with a toothbrush. So that is why daily flossing is really important for everyone.

How to floss: to start, break off about 18 inches of dental floss. Then put some floss around your middle finger on one hand and around middle finger on the other hand. Then grip the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers. Be gentle and guide the floss between your teeth using a rubbing to and fro motion.

Be careful not to snap the floss into your gums, as you may hurt them. Next, when the floss reaches your gum line, make a c-shaped curve against your tooth. Concentrate on one tooth at a time and slide the floss into the space between your gum and tooth. Then floss gently, rubbing the side of each tooth in an up and down motion. As you floss, unwind fresh floss as you advance to the rest of your teeth.

If you find it difficult to handle floss, here are some other options that you can use. These include: a dental pick, pre-threaded flosser, tiny brushes that reach between teeth, a water flosser, or a wooden or silicone wedge plaque remover. Also, it does not matter whether you floss or brush first as long as you do a good job.

Other Things You Can do for Good Oral Health

How about using mouthwash containing fluoride to aid in oral health? Do not use toothpicks or other objects that may injure your gums and let in bacteria. If you are a smoker, here’s another reason to try to quit; because tobacco boosts your risk of many more diseases, like tooth loss and gum disease.

When to Go to Your Dentist


Image result for amazon buy button
If your like me, the first thought that comes to your mind when to go to the dentist is “Will I have a cavity?” But being faithful about regular visits to the dentist (every six months is recommended,) is a good practice to have in order to avoid oral health issues. Having dental cleanings and exams that include x-rays is a smart thing to do.

But in the meantime, contact your dentist if you notice any signs or symptoms that could suggest oral health problems, such as:

gums that bleed when you floss or brush your teeth, if gums are red and tender, gums that pull away from your teeth, constant bad breath, teeth sensitivity to cold or hot, loose teeth, or painful chewing.

To Conclude

The benefits of the best oral hygiene are nothing to take lightly, if you plan on keeping your teeth as long as possible. So listen to your mother’s (or at least, my mother’s) advice or you could end up with a mouthful of problems. Unless, of course, you prefer eating baby food or soft food for the rest of your life!

Nature Made Review – Best way to Keeping You Healthy

I, like you, am looking for ways to stay healthy today, tomorrow and into the future. I was just looking for something to give me that extra edge. That’s when I came across Nature Made. They have a mother-load of the best products to help us stay healthy, so let me share what they have to offer.

Specialty


Image result for amazon buy button
This type of supplement specializes in certain areas of your body. I will name a few of these special supplements, where they help you in your body and how many products they carry. Sleep Aids is one category. Nature Made carries eight products which come in: tablets, liquid softgels, gummies and dissolving tablets, so you can get a good night’s sleep. Another specialty supplement is TripleFlex. These consist of two products. One is called TripleFlex Triple Strength. The other is TripleFlex Triple Strength with Vitamin D3. They help maintain joint cartilage, as well as helping to support joint comfort, mobility and flexibility.

Then there is “Hair, Skin & Nails” with fifteen products. These products merge key nutrients to help support healthy (you guessed it!) hair, skin and nails. One example is Biotin, which helps supports hair, nails and skin particularly for those who are biotin deficient. Vitamin C is another product. It helps support collagen synthesis, which has to do with keeping our skin cells healthy. Next is Probiotics – they are live yeasts and bacteria that are good for us. They help aid our digestive system. There are five forms to choose from: two in capsules, two in gummie form and one in tablets (for me, I like the gummies) .

Fish Oil & Omegas


Image result for amazon buy button
This section interests me because I strive to keep my heart healthy, along with my brain and my eyes too. I will break this down some more to individual products. The first is Fish Oil, which we know is good for our heart. Then there is Krill Oil, which helps support a healthy heart along with helping to reduce inflammation from arthritis and joint pain. Finally, we have Flaxseed Oil, which also seems to help decrease inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis and other swelling diseases. I just mentioned a few of the benefits of fish oil and omega to let you know how great they are for us. Oh, and Nature Made Fish Oil & Omegas have no “fishy” after-taste!

Vitamins


Image result for amazon buy button
We do not get enough vitamins in our diet, so Nature Made has a nice selection of vitamins to make up for what we tend to lack. Here is what they have and the benefit that each vitamin provides for us. Vitamin A helps with our eyes and helps us to have a healthy immune system. Next is vitamin K, which helps in bone mineralization for strong bones when taken with calcium. Then there is vitamin E. This one promotes eye health, supports immune function, prevents inflammation and lowers the chance of cancer.

Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and is needed for teeth, muscle, bone and our immune system. Normally our skin is synthesized by the sun, but some areas of the world do not get enough daylight for this to happen.

A very well-known vitamin is Vitamin C which comes from citrus. The benefits from Vitamin C are the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. One more benefit from vitamin C is that it helps in neutralizing free radicals in the body.

The B vitamin is beneficial in your energy levels, cell metabolism and brain function so we maintain well-being and good health. Lastly there is B-Complex it aids in the healthy growth and function of organs like the heart and brain.

Multivitamins


Image result for amazon buy button
Here is a list of what Nature Made has: Multivitamins for Women (eight products to choose from.) Multivitamins for Men (three products.) For general Multivitamins, there are twenty-three products for various ages and needs. Multi+ Omega-3 has just one product. Finally, for Prenatal & Postnatal needs, there are four products for those expectant mothers to choose from.

Supplements


Image result for amazon buy button
Everybody needs a supplement now and then for those everyday aches and pains or some days we just need a pick-me up! Nature Made has a nice selection to pick from. I will list what they have and give a brief description of each item. The first is Acidophilus. This supplement helps support gastrointestinal health and provides useful bacteria so you have a healthy digestive system.

Next is Alpha Lipoic Acid, which helps neutralize free radicals in the body. Then there is Astaxanthin. It helps reinforce healthy skin and eye function. Another is Melatonin, which is a hormone in the body that helps to regulate sleep cycles so we can it a good sleep. If you don’t have enough melatonin, you may feel restless and wide awake when you want to be sleeping. That is enough on the descriptions. I will list the rest of the supplements: Biotin, Cod Liver Oil, CoQ10, Folic Acid, Glucodsmin/Chondroitin, Lutein and Lysine. Each of these supplements work in unique ways in our bodies to keep us healthy.

Minerals


Image result for amazon buy button
Minerals are another type of nutrient our bodies need in our diet every day to keep us healthy. Nature Made, once again, has a good selection for us and once again I will give you a brief overview of them. Calcium is a big one. It helps in bone and teeth health. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. It helps with muscle contraction, regulation of our heartbeat, and blood clotting. Next is Iron, which we need for our hemoglobin: the protein substance which enables red blood cells to carry oxygen all throughout our body. Nature Made also offers magnesium, potassium and zinc.

Herbs


Image result for amazon buy button
Now if you are a strong believer in herbs to keep you healthy, as I am, Nature Made has some great herbs for us! They are Turmeric Curcumin, Super Saw Palmetto, St. John’s Wort, Milk Thistle, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic, Echinacea and Cranberry. You may want to check them out.

End

Looking to stay healthy is something we should do daily so we can live a long and happy life today, tomorrow and in the future. So the next time you need to stock up on some supplements, go for Nature Made. With their best selection to choose from, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Gerber Baby Food Review – The Best Food For Growing Bodies

When my daughter was a new born baby, the wife and I did not know much about baby food and nutrition because this was our first child. We asked other parents and family and friends about what to feed our baby, and of course, we got a rainbow of opinions on what is best to feed her and how much and on and on it went. Then I decided to try Gerber Baby Food, and what a selection there is on what to feed junior! So without further ado, I will tell you what I learned and see if this is the baby food for you.

Formula


Image result for amazon buy button
Formulas, for me, was a tough one because I was so ignorant on the subject and did not know where to start, but Gerber helped me out with their formula products. They have nine products to choose from. They all help aid brain & eye development and they are easy for babies to digest. Also, they have a category on Tummy Troubles & Colic with seven products available to choose from.

Baby Cereal


Image result for amazon buy button
Now this one to me seemed a little easier to figure out than the formula was. Gerber has this area broken down into three categories. The first is Single-Grain Starter Cereal with nine great varieties from oatmeal to rice. Next, is the Sitter Cereal with six products from whole wheat to oatmeal peach apple. Finally, there is the Crawler & Toddler Cereal with eight products from banana & cream to banana apple strawberry. That should make baby real happy, huh?

Baby Food


Image result for amazon buy button
I remember when my daughter was a baby there did not seem to be much to pick from or maybe I was not looking in the right places. At least today, Gerber has a great line up of food for junior. Let’s see what they have. Lil’ Mixers – there are eight of these little meals from flavors like Apple Avocado with Quinoa Crisp, Apple Strawberry Banana with Puffed Grain and many more. Wow – with Plastic Tubs there are eighty-nine varieties! Here are a few of them: carrot, pea, peach, chicken noodle dinner, apple cherry and many more.

Pouches – this is a great one for toddlers to master self-feeding and there is less mess too. They come in forty-nine flavors like Pear Squash, Fruit & Yogurt Peaches & Cream, Banana Mango and many more yummy flavors. And then there are the traditional Glass Jars – the ones I used to use which come in eleven flavors. I will rattle off a few, like Ham and Gravy, Apple, Sweet Potato, Apple Carrot & Cinnamon and more.

Snacks


Image result for amazon buy button
There are three categories in the snacks section. Dairy is one of them with thirteen flavors like Strawberry, Red Berries, Mix Berry and more. Next are the Grains & Bakery with forty-one flavors available. Let your child’s mouth water for this one: Banana Cookies or Sweet Potato Puff. The list goes on and on. Finally, there are Melts. Yum! Melts come in eight tasty flavors like Truly Tropical Blend or Banana Strawberry or Very Berry Blend (make me wish I was a baby boy again for this snack section.)

Meals & Sides


Image result for amazon buy button
Two categories are offered for Meals & Sides. One is Meal Options with twenty-two flavors or products to choose from. Another is Mac & Cheese with Chicken & Vegetables. If that’s not your baby’s fancy, how about this flavor – Turkey & Vegetable Ravioli. Again, the list goes on. Lots of choices for your child to try. There are five Sides to choose from. This one I think could have been in the snacks section. Meat Sticks, Turkey Sticks and a few more to pick from.

Beverages


Image result for amazon buy button
Now we have to have something to wash down all those meals right? Gerber has some drinks that will do the trick so here they are: one is 100 % Fruit Juices like Apple, White Grape, and Mixed Fruit. Eight in all to choose from. Water is next. Gerber water undergoes an extensive, multi step process to ensure consistent purity and quality. The last one is Water and Fruit Juice Blends – four products or flavors to pick from. Here is one called Strawberry Kiwi Flavor. Another is Mango Peach Carrot and the other two are called Banana Mango Squash and Cherry Sweet Potato Apple. (I will drink to that. How about you?)

Freshful Start


Image result for amazon buy button
There are four categories in the Freshful Start section. I will start with Homestyle Purees, with four flavors: Apple, Parsnip & Beet with Cardamom, Pear & Parsnip with Vanilla and more. Next is Ready to Blend Food Kits, which also has four selections to choose from like Pea, Mango & Corn or maybe this one: Sweet Potato & Carrot. How about Beet, Parsnip & Yellow Carrot? And finally, Parsnip, Yellow Carrot & Orange Carrot.

Veggie Entree Bowls is the next category. Two of the four products available here are Tomatoe Bell Pepper & Zucchini with Pasta & Lentil in a Garlic Citrus Seasoning and Bell Pepper Tomato & White Bean with Brown Rice and Quinoa in a Sofrito Seasoning. (hopefully, this will not give junior heart burn.) To conclude the Fresh Start section are Veggie Sides. Three varieties are available here: Riced Cauliflower & Mixed Veggies with Quinoa, Noodled Beets with Quinoa, and Noodled Butternut Squash with Brown Rice. Children today eat and drink like Kings and Queens compared to when I was a boy!

Organic


Image result for amazon buy button
Start junior on the right foot with organic food. Gerber has a nice selection to choose from. There are five categories of them. Starting with Organic Cereal, which comes in five different products one flavor is oatmeal. Then there is Organic Baby Food, which comes in forty-two tasty products, for example Pear Spinach or Banana Mango. Next is Organic Beverages. There are four flavors like Cherry Sweet Potato Apple.

Gerber even has Organic Formula. There are three of these products. You cannot get much better than that. Finally, there are Organic Snacks – fourteen of them.

This model has a powerful motor and offers a quiet ride, a heavy-duty frame that will last a long time, and is easy to store in the home. It also has many more nice features. Another model is the Sole F80. It is made of high grade steel for a long-lasting life. It allows you to run hard while reducing wear and tear on your knees.

Exercise for Seniors – Best for Body and Mind

Todays exercises for seniors are a lot different from exercises for seniors in the past. They now have improved nutrition, exercise and equipment for exercise they use. In this article I will explain the many ways seniors can stay healthy and live a happy fulfilling life. I will break down the best categories in the way they can do it.

Walking


Image result for amazon buy button
Here are some benefits for seniors with walking. One, it is just as good as running and uses up the same number of calories. IT’s been shown that when exercising, walking and running were uniformly effective at managing participants’ cardiovascular health. Two, walking is much easier to stick with for most seniors will continue walking for the rest of their life unless disease or illness prevents them. (my mother is one of them and still walks today at 88 years old but a little slower though.) Three, walking enhances cardiovascular health by lowering the risks of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cardiac arrest. Four, walking helps keep the weight off by reducing cravings for sugary foods, even in stressful situations. Which leads to obesity in seniors (and in people who are younger too.)

Five, walking increases your immune system. People who walk regularly get sick less severely and for smaller periods than people who don’t exercise. Six, walking decreases the risk of elderly people developing a physical disability by 41%, helping participants maintain their independence and stay in their homes. Seven, walking averts and lessen pain from arthritis. It lubricates knee and hip joints and strengthens the surrounding muscles, reducing the strain placed on the joint itself. Eight, walking will add years to your life. By walking 25 minutes a day, seniors added up to seven years to their lifespans (that makes me want to walk more already.) This is just one example of how walking is great for you and I am sure there are many more. But start small at first and work your way up, and you might want to ask your doctor first before you start.

Swimming


Image result for amazon buy button
Swimming is another way seniors can stay fit in both mind and body. Swimming can be relaxing and it helps melt away stress, put you in a good mood and it’s a great way to meet other people too. Another benefit is that improves muscle tone and strength and every time you move in the water, you’re putting every muscle group to work. How about this boost – flexibility swimming itself can also help heighten your flexibility in your legs, hips, neck and arms. It can also help boost your posture and lessen back pain.

Help improve heart health by making your heart more fit and boosting your cardiovascular health and resistance. Swimming may also improve your circulation, lower your blood pressure and lower your risk of heart and lung disease. IT’s easy on the joints, as you’re not weight bearing on them, for those who suffer from joint pain and discomfort. It’s a full-body workout that keeps the pressure off your hips, knees and spine. It may reduce the risk of osteoporosis it can improve bone mineral density. This is great news for women and some men too.

Cycling


Image result for amazon buy button
There are four great reasons for seniors to so cycling. One: cycling is great for your immune system and heart. It lowers your chance for heart disease and it also lowers your risk to a host of other health issues too. Two: it helps keep weight under control by boosting your metabolism, which means you’ll burn calories even when you’re at rest and it assists with burning fat and gradually building muscle, especially thighs, rear end, and hips. Three: it builds stamina and strength (I should know because I ride bikes a lot) and cycling makes your whole body work, not just your legs. Four: it is a low impact exercise because it is not hard on the body like jogging that puts pressure on joints and other parts of the body.

Yoga


Image result for amazon buy button
Yoga is another form of exercise that keeps seniors feeling like they are teenagers again. There are six areas that yoga can help seniors with which I will share with you. One is stability and balance. By reinforcing your muscles and improving your balance, yoga prevents the likelihood of falls, which can be a common problem for seniors and the elderly. Yoga also motivates mindfulness – how we focus on our thoughts, emotions, environment, community, and the world around us. Also, yoga helps reduce anxiety by reducing your sympathetic nervous system’s fight or flight reaction, which can cause inflammation of all kinds and wreak havoc on your mind and body.

If you’re suffering from high blood pressure, yoga can help here to reduces oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is one of the underlying causes of high blood pressure, especially for older adults. Yoga can help improve joint health and flexibility if your joints tend to be achy or stiff. Finally, yoga can improve your respiration. It helps you breathe better by the breathing techniques it involves.

Pilates


Image result for amazon buy button
For those of you that do not know what Pilates is (like me) it is a low impact flexibility and muscular and endurance movement that emphasizes proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. I will list some of the exercises it does and how it helps seniors or anybody. One benefit is that it increases flexibility. You work toward a safe way to extend in length and stretch of the muscles and range of motion within the joints. Yoga also improves strength without bulk. It focuses on building toned muscles that work ideally within the context of the body as a whole, and the fitness needs of a person as they move through life. One of the movements is called “Pilate Improve Posture” which focuses on movement through mat and equipment exercises and trains the body to express itself with harmony and strength. There are many more forms of exercises with Pilates. This is just a sampling of them for you.

Aerobic


Image result for amazon buy button
One last area that is great for seniors or any age group is aerobic exercise. It helps lower blood pressure, burn off calories, improve heart health, maintain joint movement and increase your energy levels. By the way, start off with a little at first – say like five minutes a day – then gradually increase from there to build up your endurance level.

It is never to late

Exercise for seniors today is a fun and a best way for them to stay healthy in mind and body. So if you know a senior who is in pretty good shape and wants to maintain it or even improve it a bit encourage them to keep moving! And if you know someone who is not in such good shape, encourage them to start moving!
