The long winter months have taken their toll on our bodies. With cold and rainy weather keeping us indoors, our bodies have become sedentary and our physiques a bit flabby. What are some of the safest ways to incorporate more movement and get moving again? The American College of Cardiology tells us that “physical activity is one of the key lifestyle risk factors that warrants attention. Lack of regular exercise and excess sedentary behavior are clearly associated with cardiovascular risk and mortality in both men and women.” Even modest incremental increases in physical activity can benefit our lives in multiple ways. But how do you get started? Here are some simple tips to save you from the couch potato lifestyle.
The Couch Potato Syndrome is common for all of us as winter ends. Equally important as adding exercise to our daily routine, is making sure our physician has given us the green light to exercise. Check with your health-care provider before beginning an exercise program for the first time or if you have not exercised in a long time, or if you have any chronic health issues. It is better to be safe with a doctor’s approval before moving our bodies in new ways.
There are many ways to incorporate movement every day at CRISTA Senior Living. Offering a vibrant activities program along with multiple opportunities to remain active, we also connect & celebrate generations through grace, compassion & inspiration.

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.
