  1. You are so right. Muscle tone is important, especially when we get older. I should know. I am 56 years old now. And I must admit, due to lack of exercises, I have poor muscle tone.

    I work part time teaching jobs. And I work hard on 3 websites. I do try to find time to exercise. But not enough.

    I am trying to do better. I recently bought a pair of sports shoes with the intent to do brisk walks. This is good right?

    Also, I am thinking of practicing yoga. Is that good for muscle tone too?

    • Yes, any kind of activity that causes the muscles to work helps not only the muscles but the whole body. As we age we tend to slack off on exercise and movement. To combat that we have to get it in our minds on a daily bases to do more activities and things to keep our body active as we did when young. That lets our body think that we still are able to be strong and healthy. So we need to get out and do it and be healthy. Thank you for commenting if there is anything I can help you with let me know.
