Choose To Move

Welcome to our latest podcast episode,  on The Peter Legge Podcast, where we dive into a conversation with representatives from the Active Aging Society and Seniors Services Society of BC. Today, we explore the “Choose to Move” program, a transformative initiative that encourages seniors to embrace an active lifestyle and reap its countless benefits.  Understanding Seniors’ Need to Move Before we delve into the details of the “Choose to Move” program, let’s take a moment to grasp the significance of seniors’ physical activity and the pressing need for initiatives like this. 

1. Aging Population and Health Implications With a steadily increasing aging population, it is crucial to address the health challenges faced by seniors. Statistics reveal that a significant percentage of seniors lead sedentary lives, contributing to various health issues such as obesity, heart disease, and joint problems. 

2. Sedentary Behavior Among Seniors Recent studies have shown that over 60% of seniors above the age of 65 spend more than 9 hours a day sitting. This sedentary behavior can lead to a decline in physical function and a reduced quality of life.

3. Benefits of Physical Activity for Seniors Promoting physical activity among seniors has proven to be a game-changer. Engaging in regular exercise and movement not only improves physical health but also enhances mental well-being, cognitive function, and overall life satisfaction.

Don’t miss this conversation that sheds light on the importance of empowering seniors to stay active and vibrant through initiatives like “Choose to Move.” Join us for an uplifting and informative episode that celebrates the spirit of active aging and the positive impact it can have on individuals and society as a whole.
