Exercising is great for you overall health, but did you know it can also help your hearing? Exercising helps with your blood flow which helps keep your hearing healthy and sharp. As you age, you may be concerned about what you can do to stay physically active. Well ‘ClevelandClinic.org’ has a great guide to help you get started:
- First, make sure you get the go ahead from your doctor. Getting a physical and making sure you know your limits is a great way to exercise safely.
- Monitor your progress. Use timers, pedometers or other tools to see how you are doing.
- Make sure you start slow. One of the easiest ways to give up on an exercise routine is to overdo it on the first day.
- With the help of a medical professional or caregiver, choose the best exercises for you. What you do and how often you do it will depend on a lot of factors.
- Check in and assess yourself regularly.
- Stay hydrated and eat right.
Don’t let age keep you from maintaining your physical health. Do what you can to stay active!
