Wellness Tips Wednesday: Aging Joints
As you begin to age, your joints are beginning to go through a stressful period. Joints are very reliant on your core strength, living a healthy lifestyle and keeping up consistently with an exercise regiment.
There are some additional steps that you could take to ensure that those joints age gracefully.
Fish consists of omega-3, which has been scientifically proven to help fight inflammation of the joints. There is a wide selection of fish to choose from, but they range from tuna, salmon, mackerel, and herring. Try incorporating these into your diet to help alleviate pain and stiffness associated with aging joints.
Before beginning your exercises try to get a warm up routine in before beginning. Diving right into exercise is like a jolt to your joints since they’re not used to the movements. Try to loosen them up by doing a few stretched and moderate exercises to wake them up from their slumber.
Moderate Work Out
When working out, try to take it easy. Follow the signs that your body is giving you and don’t press too hard. Getting into a fitness routine may be a bit difficult but don’t over exert your body. Pushing too hard during exercise may do more damage than good, so begin with a light 30 minutes and track the way that your body responds.
