We’re always telling people to get mobile, says Lynn Eaton, and many of you will be preparing for this year’s Workout at Work Day (6 June).
In fact, as this magazine arrives, many of you will be preparing for this year’s Workout at Work Day (6 June).
The day aims to make workers more aware of the need for exercise and movement in their jobs. We’ll feature some of the fantastic events in our next issue.
Meanwhile, we’re also promoting the importance of keeping people active as they enter their later lives, from their 50s onwards, as part of the CSP’s Physiotherapy Works campaign.
If you make it to 65, as a man in England you can expect to live, on average, to 83, while a woman will survive to 86. (Your expectancy is slightly lower if you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland).
Improving your agility, strength and flexibility in your 50s and 60s helps to reduce any risk of falling in later years and will enhance your life in general.
While having flexible joints is generally a boon, for some it can be linked to a host of problems. Read our feature on joint hypermobility syndrome on page 24 and find out why.
