Stress is an inescapable part of our lives and when it goes unchecked long enough, it can cause a host of health issues and may even lead to a greater susceptibility to colds and infections.
If you are looking for a way to reduce stress, it’s time to consider tai chi. An ancient Chinese tradition, tai chi involves a series of slow, focused movements accompanied by deep breathing. The slow rhythms make it a good low-impact exercise for anyone, but especially for older adults dealing with balance and joint problems. To sign up for a free instructional video, click here.
