Exercise helps to stabilise blood sugar levels, reduce blood pressure and improve mental alertness (which staves off and mitigates the effects of diabetes, heart conditions and dementia, some of the most common yet debilitating health issues). It's also cheaper than going out to dinner, buying an outfit or having a beauty treatment (all of which can contribute to feeling fabulous but without the health benefits!).
The good news doesn't even stop here - if we exercise with a friendly group of people, we also enjoy the moral support and camaraderie to be had from getting to know each other. It's a well-known and scientifically corroborated fact that having friends with whom we interact face-to-face on a regular basis (and not just remotely via email, telephone or social media) inherently helps us feel better, gives a sense of belonging to, and keeps us at the heart of, our local community.
As we get older, however, we may find ourselves living alone with family members living far away and we may not always have the financial means or confidence to get out and socialise as much as we used to. This is why Zest for Life exercise classes purposely incorporate activities designed to foster fun and friendship and are followed by an opportunity to chat over a cup of tea or coffee and help turn newly acquainted attendees into firm friends.
