Mistakes Women Make in Middle Age - 5 of 11

Skipping Exercise

Tempted to stop working out as you get older? (Or use it as another excuse not to start?) Sorry, that won’t cut it.

You’ll have to exercise despite the aches and pains of middle age—the bum knee, tricky back, or it-just-makes-me-feel-like-hell feeling.

Exercising can actually relieve pain, and stave off health problems in coming years, such as creeping weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, or dementia.

If you can manage a marathon, great. If not, now is the time to check out the gym pool, start taking yoga, or fall in love with power walking.
