3/16 (Sat.) The exercise in aging society (Host: Yenny)

文章 thomas »

Section I:
Taiwan will become a super-aging society in the near future. Have you ever considered what kind of exercise is good for the elderly?
Here are five discussion questions for your discussion on the topic of embracing leisure sports in the age of active aging:
1. What are the physical and mental health benefits of engaging in leisure sports for yourself or your family?

Consider aspects like cardiovascular health, muscle strength, flexibility, and overall well-being.

2. How can we encourage more seniors to participate in recreational activities?

Discuss strategies to overcome barriers such as lack of motivation, time constraints, or physical limitations.

3. What types of leisure sports are particularly suitable for seniors, considering both your future and the general older adult population?

Explore options like walking, swimming, tai chi, golf, or even dancing.

4. How can communities create inclusive spaces for seniors to enjoy recreational activities?
Share ideas on designing accessible parks, fitness centers, and social gatherings.

5. What role does social interaction play in promoting active aging through leisure sports? Discuss the importance of companionship, group activities, and community support.

1. What kind of water exercise have you tried? What was your experience like?

2. If we visit a swimming pool, will everyone only know how to swim? Will non-swimmers also be engaged in water activities? And will you bring your kids to play with you?

3. Have you ever experienced drowning or had a fear of water? What kind of aqua exercise is acceptable to you?

4. Do people who can swim still need aqua fitness? How do you differentiate between swimming and water fitness?
