Diana Moran tells us to Sod Sitting, Get Moving! Diana's latest book with Professor Sir Muir Gray is the must-have guide to keeping fit and healthy in your sixties, seventies and beyond. Diana says “If you are 60 plus you’re at a good time of life, some would say in the prime of life. I’ve spent many of my 78 years evangelising about the benefit of exercise. Whatever your age or your income, whether you have one or more long-term conditions, and five or ten prescriptions, becoming more active and taking more exercise will:

• Help you feel better
• Reduce your risk of many common health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, depression and, best news of all, dementia
• Make the treatment for any condition or disease more effective, and can sometimes lead to the need for pills disappearing completely
• Improve both your mood and your brain function– how you think and feel

Diana will provide tips and exercises for older adults. She will share the exercises, stretches and strengthening movements will help keep you fit, strong and supple for the years ahead.
