In his 20 plus years in the fitness industry, George Georgiou from http://www.m7secret.com has helped Baby Boomers and those approaching Middle Age turn their health around, and add years to their lives. For the most part, he found that they were confused to the point of stagnation. " They were virtually paralysed due to information overload" noted Georgiou. He also added " once they realised that it's not rocket science, and that it was a matter of small, sustainable changes, there enthusiasm was renewed, and they were off and running".
Tip 1- Make an Appointment With Your GP.
In my experience, Baby Boomers and those approaching Middle Age usually only visit their GP when a health issue arises. A far better idea is to employ an annual visit program to discuss your health status, and take appropriate measures to initiate a plan that will keep you in good health for years to come.
Tip 2 : Take Up a Low Impact Hobby or Sport.
A great example of this is golf. Of course if you went all out, it can be expensive hobby if you are wanting the best in equipment and apparel. But golf requires you to walk. It also requires you to bend and reach, and touch my toes and twist your waist. Three times a week is ideal for a baby boomer bodies.
Tip 3 : Get Back Into (or take up) Swimming
Swimming tones the midsection, tightens arms and strengthens legs. It gets your heart rate up. It works your lungs due to having to hold your breath and release it.
Tip 4: Mattress Yoga
When you wake, before you get up why not try a few simple moves. Things like leg lifts, wrist and ankle circles. Then slowly rise up out of bed and perform shoulder rolls, hips rolls, arm and finger stretches. Doing this will boosts your energy level, and help prevent arthritis pain too.
Tip 5: One of The Best Ways To Trim Up Is To Cut The Bread.
Bread is one of the main causes of the baby boomer "midsection spread" due to the excess carbohydrates. And while you are at it, try to control other carbohydrates like cereal, potato's and other similar foods.
Tip 6: Clean House One Day a Week.
Cleaning the house is one of the most subtle ways that Baby Boomers can keep their body healthy, and is a terrific calorie burner
Tip 7: De-Stress in the Garden
Gardening is another great stress reliever, and a great "mind escape". Naturally gardening requires you to do some digging, pulling, carrying, lifting. This is all for a good cause though. You will be looking after your health, and maintaining the value of your property too.
Tip 8: Perform Some Resistance Exercise Once or Twice a Week.
This is a must for Baby Boomer health. Grab your self a light pair of dumbells, and perform some arm curls and shoulder presses. You can even substitute the dumbells with a couple of cans of tinned food!
Tip 9: Walk.
Walking will help keep your breathing under control and blood pressure down. It raises the heart rate, burns fat and tones your muscles. It's also a great social thing to do with friends. Combine walking and window shopping.
Tip 10: Cut The Portions of Food.
Using smaller plates also tricks the mind as it takes smaller amounts of food to fill the plate. Make sure to chew the food thoroughly, rather than inhale it!! As silly as this sounds, the longer you chew, the less you will actually eat as you will become fuller quicker. Also, look to graze throughout the day, rather than gorge breakfast and dinner only.
