Instead, join your grandkids and kick those balls around a bit, break into a small jog every now and then, and pass over that saunter for a brisk walk. You can stay active indoors too! How about trying out some new age mantras with power yoga or tai-chi? There are some cool computer games to give your brain a good workout - improve memory, sharpen visual skills and increase reaction time.
