Good range of exercising options
As you start to get on in years
it is important to try and
maintain your own interests,
social life and fitness level to
a certain degree.
When it comes to exercise it can sometimes
be difficult to find something suitable but
there are a good range of options
One of the more simpler choices for this time of
the year is to phone a friend to go walking with.
And with the fabulous frosty mornings, resulting in
picture perfect days, there is plenty of opportunity
to do so.
If you are a little gym shy, it might be a good idea
to invest in a piece of cardiovascular equipment for
your own home.
Put it in front of the television, tune into your
favourite programme and before you know it,
you'll be so absorbed in what you are watching,
you won't even realise you have been strolling
along for half an hour or more.
Fitness DVDs are another great way of exercising,
whether it be pilates, yoga or aerobics.
If you have the self-discipline to follow them they
provide a good work out and are structured from
beginners to advanced, ensuring they are suitably
tailored to your particular needs.
Low impact exercise is particularly useful and
swimming and cycling are two that fall into this
Swimming is great for those with painful arthritic
joints and coupled with a little aqua-jogging is a
fabulous way to tone-up.
And for those wishing to keep their minds active
and and their days full, why not join a club, such as
lawn bowls, croquet or perhaps golf.
Other possibilities for people keener on indoor
pursuits are bridge and indoor bowls.
Hand crafts like knitting, crochet, woodwork and
needlework are also a great way to keep busy,
particularly during the cooler months.
Enjoy the grandchildren
Not everybody chooses to have
children, and some of you who do will
understand just how hard it seems to
be to persuade them to give you a
grandchild or two nowadays!
No amount of coaxing, helpful advice or
great granny's remedies seem to do the
trick, as professional and personal lifestyles
increasingly take precedence over the
equally important business of bringing forth
the next generation of little Kiwis.
However, as those of you that are lucky
enough to have seen the next two
generations of your family into the world
will know, a whole host of pleasures awaits.
Doubly pleasurable, these moments spent
occupying your grandchild for a few hours
each week, since you needn't really concern
yourself with any of those unpleasant tasks
related to actually shaping the wee'un into a
creditable and non-delinquent member of
society. As if by magic, week by week, little
Jack or Jill crosses your threshold with an
apparent abundance of newly acquired
skills, which you need only marvel at with
the appropriate range of laudatory noises
and pats on the head.
Any mischief while they're on your home
patch can be simply diverted with the
judicious application of a scoop or two of
technicolour ice cream, or yet another
And you can be sure that your young (and
temporary) charge is canny enough not to
bite the hand that feeds it so generously.
That sharp and pointy distinction is reserved
for mum and dad! So be sure to enjoy the
time you spend with your grandchildren
guiltlessly: after all it's your job to indulge
their every whim for expensive toys and
games, and to permit them to splash in
muddy puddles and scuff their new
sneakers irreparably. Only then should you
hand them back to their jaded, weary
parents, with joy in your heart and a twinkle
in your eye.
