Introducing Go4Life, the new exercise and physical activity campaign from the National Institute on Aging
National Institute on Aging-funded studies show that exercise and physical activity are associated with many health benefits and can be especially beneficial for caregivers. They can help maintain physical strength and fitness, help manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, help reduce feelings of depression, and help improve mood and overall well-being.
Go4Life aims to motivate people 50 and older to incorporate exercise and physical activity into their daily lives. In addition to our popular, free print materials on exercise and physical activity, Go4Life offers a variety of online evidence-based resources for older people, family members, health professionals, and organizations.
We invite you to fully explore the interactive Go4Life website-www.nia.nih.gov/Go4Life-which includes:
- facts about the health benefits of exercise for older adults
- sample exercises with video demonstrations
- My Go4Life, an interactive tool for setting personal exercise goals and tracking progress
- motivational tips
- personal success stories
- free resources for organizations and health professionals
- and much more!
