Rebuilding After Bereavement
Circle of Support
I go to the gym everyday. It gives me a purpose to get up & get going in the morning. Working out keeps me motivated. My husband died a year ago, it is what has kept me going. You make friends at the gym. Exercise has never hurt anyone, you can always work at your own pace. Good for your body, mind & soul. I enjoy cardio, machines & classes.
Sometimes all you can do is put one foot in front of the other. Come back to Silver Sneakers and try it. It just might help.
Dee Ann's Story
I love my SilverSneakers class not only the exercise but the interaction with others. I started after the death of my husband. We had been married almost 50 years and this class really has helped kept (sic) me from falling into depression. I love SilverSneakers and it has me going to our rec. center and being part of an active group.
