Not since my last visit to the Hall of Mirrors, have I been so confused! In the same week that gyms are able to open and that there will be a battle against obesity, we hear the news that everyone over the age of 50 may need to isolate!!
Let’s hope common sense prevails and those in this age bracket are encouraged to do more, especially in light of this new report from the University of East Anglia which suggests those in their middle-age need to keep up their physical activity levels if they are to enjoy a fit and healthy retirement. The study reveals that over-55s in particular should be doing more to keep fit as they approach retirement age—because of the physical, mental and social benefits of being active.
Lead researcher Dr. Charlotte Salter, from UEA's Norwich Medical School, said: "In England, participation in physical activity tends to decrease around the age of 55. "Frailty and pre-frailty—the decline in health, resilience and mobility often associated with ageing—are conditions previously expected to be found in people at retirement age and over. But now these conditions affect a third of British adults aged 50-65.
Whilst many have saved and invested in pensions, the long-term effect of not having enough time or energy because of work, health problems and a lack of motivation are leaving many approaching retirements in poor shape.
