According to a new survey, Baby Boomers are living longer but less healthy lives than their parents. JustWalkers.com pharmacist Bryan Mercer discusses the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle and what his site is doing to help.
Fulton, MD (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
According to a survey by JAMA Internal Medicine, although Baby Boomers are living longer than the previous generation they are less healthy. The survey found that Boomers more likely to have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity. The cause of the problem—poor diet and lack of exercise.
“As you age, exercising gets more challenging. But it also gets much more important,” said JustWalkers.com pharmacist Bryan Mercer. “We’re doing what we can to help the aging maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.”
JustWalkers.com sells a variety of mobility devices from canes to rollators to help those who can no longer walk unassisted continue to live healthy, active lives. Over the past few months, healthy living advice has become a much bigger part of their blog. Their team of writers covers tips ranging from “How to Safely Use Your Mobility Aid” to “Low Impact Exercises for the Elderly.” They also write about the benefits healthy living can have, including giving you more energy, keeping you social, and helping your mind stay young.
The good news is it’s never too late to start exercising. According to Mercer, “Even thirty minutes of exercise a day will make a huge difference in how you feel. If you’re being slowed down by your walker, consider using a rollator. They don’t provide quite as much stability, but they let you move around much quicker and help you maintain a more active life.”
