Winter is here, and young people rush home from work on the way, always see the uncles and aunts who insist on dancing the square dance downstairs in the unit at the gate of the community.An Yuan, who ca n’t wait to shrink her face into her clothes, laments the advancement in science and technology. Now square dances are all popular with headphones and they do n’t bother the people at all. On the other side, they are worried. Are these uncles and aunts really cold?Also resistant to freezing.A Yuan’s mother is also one of the square dance enthusiasts, and her mother loves it, but A Yuan often stops it.A few years ago, A Yuan thought that the square dance activity was not only disturbing, but also unappreciative. He said that it was physical exercise, and A Yuan said: “I don’t believe in those few swings, I can still exercise.”A study published in the European Heart Journal suggests that square dancing may really be good for exercise.Dancing can protect the heart, to a quiet square dance?The study analyzed more than 1.1 million seniors over the age of 60 and found that more exercise can prevent heart disease and stroke.Researchers said that as people age, people who are not physically active will have a 27% risk of cardiovascular disease, and if they exercise regularly, they can reduce the risk of disease by 11%.For the elderly, aerobics such as brisk walking, dancing, gardening, or running or fast cycling for at least 30 minutes a day can benefit.Therefore, in the case of doing a good job of keeping warm without disturbing the people, maybe dancing square dance is also good!Winter sports for the elderly, it should be noted that these most popular sports for the elderly, in addition to dancing square dance, is morning exercise.However, winter morning exercises hide many dangers.Winter is a period of high incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In the winter morning, the temperature is low. At this time, our blood vessels are constricted, which leads to increased blood pressure. If some strenuous exercise is performed, blood pressure is unstable and accidents occur.After morning exercise, many people choose to take a hot bath because of sweating.In fact, you should not take a hot bath immediately after getting up in the morning and after exercising.A hot bath will relax the capillaries on the surface of the body, affect the normal supply of blood to the heart, brain and blood vessels, and cause accidents. It is recommended to slow down first.For the elderly, it is not suitable for fasting.Most elderly people suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes. In the early morning, it is a period of high incidence of hypoglycemia. If fasting exercise is performed, it is easy to cause hypoglycemia and hypotension.
