It’s January and for many that means a fresh start and re-focusing
on healthy habits in the New Year. Those habits often start with changes
to diet and exercise, and sometimes solely focus on weight loss! But exercise
is much more than just a way to lose weight.
On top of weight loss, regular exercise is shown to improve heart health,
blood pressure, cholesterol, sleep, and reduce stress levels. But just
as our bodies change as we age, so does our approach to exercise. What
does exercise look like at 25? At 45? At 75? To learn more about healthy
living and the importance of exercise at all stages of life, join Charles
Vidrine, MD, for his lecture on exercise.
New Year, New You: Exercise at Every Age is a free seminar being held
on Friday, January 25 at 12 noon in the Lake Charles Memorial Hospital
Shearman Conference Center on Oak Park Blvd. Light lunch provided and
