Recently it was International Alzheimer's Day, so we’ve put together a short article to discuss how daily exercise can reduce your risk of the disease.

One of the biggest concerns many of us have about getting older is living out the last of our days with a disease, and Alzheimer’s is no exception.

Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behaviour. Many of us have witnessed our loved ones go through this disease and live in fear of developing it ourselves.

The Alzheimer’s Association has said that regular cardiovascular exercise can help to reduce the risk of you getting the disease. They found that up to a third of Alzheimer’s cases are preventable through lifestyle changes, including physical exercise.

In a post from The Help Guide, experts have found that the risk of Alzheimer’s is not limited to old age, but can start in the brain long before symptoms are detected, often in middle age. With this discovery, now you know that the earlier you start to make a change, the better.

Cardiovascular and strength training and types of exercise help you to maintain brain health by; pumping your brain, training your mind with consistent tasks, increasing memory through exercise and much more. Again, according to The Help Guide, for those of you over 65, adding 2-3 strength sessions to your weekly routine may cut your risk of Alzheimer’s in half.

Implementing something like a  corporate wellness programme into your workplace, it’s a great way to influence yourself and your staff to stay healthy and beat potential future diseases. 

When people are empowered to make a healthy change at work, their mindset changes not just towards their health, but towards how they see you as a company. A company that invests in its employees currently and future well-being is a company that invests in itself.

A corporate wellness solution like June365 engages and inspires people through its’ immersive challenges, trainers, exercise programmes and its intelligent wellbeing engine. It is the perfect way to help our older workforce work towards their wellness wherever suits them best. 

So let’s help as many people as we can to start beating this disease, and invest in your employees' futures.
