Exercise your mind, exercise your body at your senior center – Osage County Online | Osage County News

Exercise your mind, exercise your body at your senior center

As we age, our bodies and our minds lose strength, mobility, tone and sharpness. The old saying is really true – if you don’t use it you lose it. Muscles can get significant atrophy if we don’t exercise regularly. Our minds are the same way. If we don’t use our brain, it, too, becomes dull and confused.

We all need to adapt to the physical limits that age keeps putting on our bodies. We all need to exercise both our bodies and our minds to keep inertia from taking control. If we keep ourselves fit and sharp, we will live longer with a much better quality of life. If we push our bodies and minds to the limit on a regular basis, it will dramatically slow down the limits imposed by age. We owe it to ourselves and our families to keep ourselves fit and take care of ourselves. It’s OK to adapt, but it’s not OK to give up and let gravity and dullness get the best of you.

Come to the Osage County Senior Center this week to exercise your mind and body. Visit the center at 604 Market St., Osage City, or call 785-528-4906 for more information.
