Timeless advice. Keep spreading the word.

Let's not forget that regular exercise can prevent or lessen the effects of over 50% of chronic illness in those over the age of 65.

Also improves self-esteem, confidence, decreases depression... the list goes on and on.

If you cannot do the exercises listed here, chair exercise is an option for almost everyone.

Stay strong,

Timely for me article Report
I like this article. It makes sense Report
Thanks for the article, I will exercise more with the hope of lowering my HBP, cause I'm not consistant with it, Thanks for the tips, plus I need too tone up after losing 46 pounds. Again thanks Report
I appreciate that this article basically is talking about ‘exercise for people who don’t like to exercise’ which is sooo me! And that’s what I’ve been trying to focus on…worry less about doing exercise and focus more on being ACTIVE. I now take the stairs alot, at work I walk the long way to the cofee machine and restroom. I now that’s it’s making a difference for me on the waistline. And as I get more active, scheduling ‘exercise’ (like zumba classes) is just now starting to become more a part of my routine. Thanks for helping validate that I'm on the right "active" path! Report
First you need to use spell check on the preview page - achieve - spelled incorrectly then correctly. Second, all the statistics are with the only change being exercise? No diet changes? I don't think so. Report
Thanks so much for these helpful tips...

I will try to use hand weights while watching TV.... (but let me keep the remote) haha Report
I actually love to workout! I like how my body and mind feel afterwards. I feel strong and sexy and empowered. Every time I get done with a workout, I know I'm getting more fit and healthy. To me, sweat is sexy!!! Report
Aside from group activities (difficult to find/do them 5 times a week), I simply don't like exercise. However, this is something I want to change; hopefully, doing something I enjoy rather than something I hate. Yeah, I need an attitude adjustment. Report
I appreciated the article. A good reminder to stay focused and keep working towards the goal. I enjoy reading others comments too. Some people have good ideas and it helps to remind me I am not the only one out there trying to stay healthy. Report
can't appreciate ocd activities Report
Love the idea of Keeping a pair of comfortable walking shoes in your car. Definite going to take that advice. No excuses. Report
I miss you Jen your articles are very healthy. my main goal is to remain heathy. I tried to exercise 5-7 days a week for 20- 30 mins a day for the 3 days I work and 1 hour minimum for my days off . I guess it make up for keeping my cholesterol and blood pressure within normal range. On my day of work, not only I take the steps but also my job involve a lot of ups and down the hallway, turning and repositing matters. I guess that count also for something. I t ' s good to know that I am doing the right thing. I used to feel guilty if I miss 1 day or do too little exercise. Thank you much. Report
Here's another ides: At work, I go to a restroom on another floor, taking the stairs each way. Report
I can do everything you suggested except for one.... Please don't make me give up my remote!! I'll make it up by walking extra --- but have a heart --- I'm a compulsive channel changer. Report
