Ellicott City Lap Pool and Portable Spa Dealer Shares 3 Healthy Aging Tips for Seniors. Offers Free Hot Tub Test Soaks to Local Residents.
Doug Cashmere of Costello’s Ace Hardware & Hearth said, “Staying healthy is important for people of all ages. For seniors, and people approaching their golden years, it is even more important to think about ways to live healthier and increase physical and mental fitness.” Here are three easy ways to get the most out of summer with the family at home.
Create a Place to Relieve Stress and Pain with a Hot Tub – Anyone with a few feet of outdoor space, or a hard indoor surface can add a hot tub to their living area. A portable spa is perfect for people with small porches, or indoor areas, and they still offer the luxurious atmosphere, soothing heat and comforting massage jets.
The National Sleep Foundation states that soaking in warm water 30 minutes before bedtime helps people fall asleep faster, and sleep more soundly. The temperature regulation on a hot tub helps make it easy and keeps the water at the perfect setting for the entire soaking time.
Start Eating Right – As people age, thy may have a harder time maintaining weight and muscle strength. A well-balanced diet high in fiber and containing plenty of protein helps seniors maintain muscle mass. Keep track of calorie intake in a daily journal to help get rid of extra pounds, that also places a great strain on the body, and increases the chances of developing Type II diabetes.
Get Moving a Little Bit Each Day – Exercise is a great way to increase balance, muscle strength and has even been proven to improve moods. When people exercise, their brain releases a burst of endorphins that make them feel good.
Although many programs are too strenuous for older people, there are a lot of easy ways to get moving, even for seniors who are limited in their mobility. Check out chair aerobics online or water aerobics programs at local health clubs or community swimming pools, and move just a little bit each day.
To encourage people to check out the benefits of owning their own hot tub or swim spa, Costello’s Ace Hardware & Hearth and Ace Home Leisure will be providing free test soaks all month long. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call the company ahead of time to reserve their spot.
