Another Reason to Counsel Patients to Exercise

by Academy of Clinical Excellence on August 9, 2011

A friend sent me this article from the Montreal Gazette about a 93-year-old man who has exercised vigorously throughout his whole life. When counseling our patients to exercise ( ), we often emphasize the benefits on weight and cardiovascular health, however this article describes how important exercise has been in reducing stress and maintaining the mental health of this particular individual.



Disclosure: Sol Levine is my grandfather.
