Newport / Casnewydd South-East Wales

Easy Movement

Convenor: Clive Hard

Meetings: Every Wednesday during Term time 12.15 - 13.30

Regular gentle exercise can help to prevent many of the aches and pains we get as we grow older. It can also be fun and help you to get more out of life.

Exercise:
Helps you to sleep better
Can help to relieve depression
Can increase the elasticity of your skin, and so help you to look younger
STILL NOT CONVINCED?

Well - exercise can also help to:
Prevent heart disease and high blood pressure
Keep your weight down
Prevent your muscles from weakening
Keep your joints flexible
Best of all, it can improve your general health and increase your resistance to illness and infection. As we grow older changes occur in our bodies, joints become stiffer and perhaps arthritic or rheumatic. We can relive this by doing exercises to keep them mobile and to strengthen muscles.

Circulation may become sluggish - regular exercise will tone it up and keep you warm in winter
Your balance may worsen; achieving a better posture will help to counteract this
Your self-confidence may start to go; learning to sit and stand tall can help with this.
And, last but not least, exercise can be great fun, adding to both your physical and mental alertness and relaxation. It can help to put those worries into their right perspective and it can make you a lot of new friends.

Our group also learns about anatomy and the workings of the body and how targeted exercises can help our aches and pains.
