Happy Wellness Wednesday! Today, Episcopal Retirement Services Wellness Director Chloe Hough reviews a new exercise to strengthen your grip and forearms. One of the most important indicators of healthy aging is muscle strength. When you think about it, your hands are used almost constantly throughout the day. Simple things such as opening the fridge door, turning the tap on, and pouring yourself a drink all require grip strength. Grip strength also correlates with a reduced risk of several diseases, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, heart attack, and stroke. Use these exercises to keep your grip strong—and stay independent longer.
