Improving Home Health Care for Aging Seniors –
World Health Day Challenge
All year round, we’re working to improve older people’s home health care and the challenges of aging. April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day.
From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
With World Health Day coming April 7, 2019, perhaps we challenge ourselves and our loved ones to make eating healthy and exercising a priority?
The simple trick to getting in better shape and feeling confident about your fitness level is to make exercise a priority even when you’ve got a dozen other things to do.
Hopkinton Home Care knows that nothing is more important than family. Let’s do it together!
Yes, you can schedule weekly workouts into your day planner or phone’s calendar—and you should, if it’s a matter of reserving those times for exercise—but if you’re prone to skipping exercise already, you might need a stronger push in the right direction.
Try to set a schedule for exercise with these simple steps.
Start the day off right: Your best bet is to exercise whenever your busy day allows it, but if you have scheduling wiggle room, plan on working out in the first half of the day. Getting exercise done early means you don’t have to worry about casting it aside later in the day if something throws you off course.
A key to success: The more successful you feel about sticking to your workouts, the more you’ll want to keep up with that rewarding behavior.
Buddy up: When you’ve got one or more friends cheering you on, you’ll want to eat better and exercise ore.
A key to success: While any supportive friend can make a good workout buddy, one who’s already motivated to exercise can help you jump-start the same habits and a similar mindset.
Priority by payment: Exercise is easier to skip when you’ve got nothing riding on it. That’s why laying down cash makes a lot of sense, fiscally and physically.
A key to success: Once you prepay for an ongoing class, you’ll want to get your money’s worth by showing up.
Look for windows of opportunity: There might be windows of opportunity for working out during times that you thought were out of bounds.
A key to success: Can you visit a gym at the community center you belong to?
