Exercise is Vital For Everyone!

Regular exercise is vital for all of us. That goes from our young kids and grandkids on up to boomers and even elderly seniors. And one of the easier ways to exercise is walking. Walking fast, walking slow – both are quite useful. And here in Roseville CA, we have so many lovely walk options to enjoy, making those required times of exercise to be much more pleasurable. What sorts of ways? I’m glad you asked 🙂

Walking outside on sidewalks or walking trails

The delightful and proactive city of Roseville CA has purposefully worked to have walking trails and bikeways throughout the city. The paths are sometimes hardscaped, other times natural dirt, and all that I’ve been on (quite a few) are lovely.

Ours is a bike-friendly and walking/jogging friendly city and my family and friends all appreciate that very much. The city provides an excellent map of the various trails along with bike ways, parks and more and you can CLICK HERE to find the link for it along with other great recreational resources for Roseville at my Pinterest board.

Walking Inside while enjoying some window shopping

Did you know that many malls across the country allow people to come in early before the stores are open. They are allowed to walk all around the mall in order to get healthy exercise in a safe and warm environment. I’m very proud and appreciative to say that the Westfield Galleria at Roseville CA is one of those malls. That was such a sweet blessing for us a few years ago when my senior dad’s Parkinsons Disease progressed to the point where he could no longer golf with his Sun City Roseville buddies. But he, my mom, and I made new friends as we walked around the mall most mornings, saying hi to familiar faces, and enjoying seeing the various holiday decor the stores used throughout the year. That commitment to daily exercise kept my dad going til just the last two months of his life and I hope I have at least half his determination to stay active always!

Treadmills are a treat

We’ve had treadmills off and on over the years, depending on the size of our homes. Right now, ours is tucked away in the garage, but since we’re walking outside all the time, that’s OK. In past years, we’ve been able to have it in the living room and it was so handy during a prolonged rainy season. Personally, with the drought issues we’re dealing with in Roseville, I’m really HOPING for a prolonged rainy season – but with no flooding! If that happens, I might be tempted to try and bring it into the house.

Walking is excellent exercise for senior citizens and a treadmill is a terrific way to keep it up even when you cannot leave the house

Walmart and other big stores

For years, my senior mom and I would head off to shop at the big Walmart in cold weather – partly to shop, largely to give my mom a chance to walk without getting too cold. They make so many of these stores so large, it’s a fun way to get your exercise. And if you want to be sure you don’t buy anything – leave the cards and money at home. (Nope, we never did 🙂 ).

Any Which Way – Walking is Grand!

However you get your walking in, you’ll be glad you did. It’s great exercise for your body, your mind and even your emotions. And I have to say, I really appreciate all the great options we have here in Roseville CA. A sweet joy, indeed!

P.S. WOW! Surrounded by golf courses the way I am, how could I forget another great way to enjoy walking – playing golf at one of the lovely golf courses here in Roseville CA. 🙂
