Improving Your Health in Slow Motion (Mar. 2017)

TaiCHi

Tai Chi is often described as meditation in motion, but according to Harvard Medical School, it should be called “medication in motion”. Harvard’s Tai Chi and Mind-Body Research program believes that the exercises are a useful part in the treatment of many conditions commonly associated with age and have been found to improve patients’ functioning and quality of life.

While the slow motion exercise will not leave you breathless, it has been demonstrated to improve muscle strength, flexibility, balance and even aerobic conditioning. Additionally, you can participate without any equipment and can find groups to join in most communities, including ours. And let’s not forget that the need for memorization of the choreographed movements will also get your grey cells working.

So if you haven’t tried it already, why not try it as part of your exercise routine?
