Keep Moving

Five tips for reducing the risks of osteoporosis – especially important in the elderly:

1) Regular weight-bearing exercise such as walking, dancing, Tai Chi and going up and downstairs – whatever is appropriate for you.

2) Pay attention to your vitamin D and calcium levels (exposure to sunlight from spring to autumn is a good source of vitamin D, which is essential for calcium absorption.)

3) Keeping moving regularly.

4) Avoid smoking.

5) Avoid drinking too much alcohol.

I love the photograph – but please DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!
