Valerie Trafton, activity director at Bivins Pointe, shares tips for staying active:

A really great activity for seniors is to help them reminisce.  That might include scrapbooking or looking through old pictures and reminiscing about things they’ve done in the past with their family and friends.

Playing trivia games is another great way to reminisce. It is so fun to remember some of that timeless trivia like things that happened in the sixties and other decades.

 Another important thing to do is get outside and soak up some vitamin D. You really will benefit from just ten minutes of fresh air.

 Keeping your brain active is also important, so get some crosswords, some word searches.  Brain teasers are really helpful because they push you to stay with it until you’ve solved it. Get a newspaper and check out the new crossword and new Sudoku every day.

 These tips are simple but they will really help you stay active and healthy.
