GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Seniors nationwide are finding ways to stay active, live longer and improve their quality of life.

This week is "Active Aging Week" -- an annual campaign that focuses on the positivity of growing older, regardless of age, health conditions or physical challenges. The week-long event runs from Sept. 25 to Oct. 1.

Trillium Woods trainer and fitness center manager Alyssa Isaackson appeared on KARE's 11 a.m. show to talk about the importance of staying fit for aging adults. Isaackson offered a variety of tips to help seniors stay active and healthy -- in both body and mind -- as they grow older.

They include:
• Modify favorite exercises, hobbies or activities
• Eat healthy
• Alternative ways to stay active, including brain exercises and stress relievers

Active Aging Week is sponsored by the International Council on Active Aging. Trillium Woods in Plymouth is a new senior life plan community, which helps adults to stay active through their later years. For more information, call (763)-312-8734.
