The theme for Active Aging Week 2019 is “Redefining Active” because active aging is about so much more than just exercise. It’s about broader engagement—physically, socially, cognitively, spiritually, professionally and civically. Active aging is about engaging with family, friends and/or community, learning and trying new things, volunteering, mentoring, pursuing further professional development, traveling,, maintaining an active spiritual/religious life, and leading a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition, exercise, mindfulness and other forms of stress-management.
Simply put, active aging is about staying positively engaged in all aspects of life—which ultimately benefits both the individual and broader society.
