Everyone should try their best to stay active. Seniors, in particular, can benefit from physical activity. Not only can seniors benefit physically, from exercise, but they can also benefit mentally. Visiting Angels Barrington recommends some activities that seniors can try out. 

Before a senior starts to exercise, they should make sure to talk with their doctor about their plans. A doctor can then give their patient the approval to go ahead with the exercise or an explanation as to why the exercise can be dangerous. One activity that a senior can discuss with their doctor could be yoga. Yoga is great because the poses can be modified; plus, it was design to be accessible. To get a good idea of the basics, a senior should try to attend in-person classes first. Once a senior gains a better understanding of yoga, they can continue with in-person classes or transition to online lessons/videos.
