How taking a deep breath is vital for mature age
BREATHING correctly with your diaphragm is fundamental to helping your immune system work efficiently.
Your diaphragm is located below your ribs. You will know if you are using your diaphragm correctly if you put your hand just below your ribs and can feel it going up and down.
Although breathing this way is known as deep breathing, it does not infer that it should be rushed or big breaths taken.
Stretching, (extending arms, body and legs past your normal operating range), should not be hurried either and should be done before and after any daily routine and that includes the household chores, gardening, work.
It's not exercise and needs to done slowly. Yoga is a good discipline to learn correctly.
Exercise is a fundamental part of movement and because strong muscles are the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth, your routines need to be intensive and that means using weights.
Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of mature people regularly use weights.
You should exercise often but each session should not be for long.
As we mature, we need to eat much less and expand the types of natural foods we choose.
