Staying active is a key element in getting older. Not only regular movement but also frequent social activities are known to avoid (mental) health problems that are associated with aging. Active aging includes participating in social activities and becoming more active in doing so, while receiving protection, security and care.
Fear of falling
When you become older, many of the biological processes that stimulate muscle (re)generation become less effective. Research shows that your maximum heart rate and oxygen levels decline, affecting the ability to exercise and to build up muscle strength. Joints become stiffer and muscle elasticity decreases, making it harder to maintain regular movement.
