Benefits of staying active

It’s difficult to underestimate the advantages of involvement as we age. No doubt many would argue just for the sort of physical activity that keeps us able to balance and move about without fear of falling or finding everyday activities a physical strain.

Even more important, many think, is staying intellectually engaged in the world and the community. With the plethora of depressing national and international news these days, many feel the urge to just opt out and concentrate on this golf game or that bridge set. But far better to read newspapers and magazines, go online and read opinion pieces on The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, or whatever sites you find that both blend with and oppose your own views.

Write in and share some ideas you have about the advantages of staying active during these years when we can pretty much do whatever it is that we decide to do.
