If we want to be healthy, exercise is no doubt essential. What kind of exercise is suitable for people above the age of 35? Wellness expert Master Bai Yin believes that Qigong is very suitable for middle-aged people to maintain fitness. For those with declining physical conditions, and having a busy life style, with just 3 minutes of Qigong practice in the morning and evening, it can help to strengthen our cardiopulmonary function, and relax our mind.
Master Bai Yin pointed out that at the age of 25 the growth and development of our body begin to slow down. After the age of 35, one usually starts to experience a decline in physical health. When you are young, you probably can endure one or two nights without sleep and will not have any problems. But now if you do not sleep well for a night, you will most likely feel unsettled the next day. Vision, memory ability and fertility also start to decline. Early greying of hair, weight gain, wrinkles, presbyopia all start to occur for many.

Middle age is one of the most important stage in life, fulfilling responsibilities and obligations for families or for many, it is a crucial time for building one’s career, hence, one hardly finds enough time to exercise. Qi Gong is recommended as it offers many health benefits and at the same time relaxes our mind. Without straining our muscles, Qi Gong helps to improve blood circulation and expels impurities and dampness from our body.
Master Bai Yin explained that Qigong has 4 main advantages:
1. It takes only 10 minutes a day to practice without leaving your home and can be practiced anywhere. Not restricted to time, location or weather conditions, and need not invest in expensive equipment.
2. As the physical condition of the middle-age may decline, aggressive sports are not suitable. Therefore, Qi Gong practices such as Harmony Qi promoted by Qigong For Life, with gentle slow and easy movements are highly recommended. It is relaxing, no meditation required, no over-stretching, and within short period of time one can immediately improve stamina, feel fresh and full of energy.
3. When one reaches middle age, minor health issues may start to arise, such as poor sleep quality, constipation, body becomes out-of-shape, high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc. Even though these may not be serious yet to require medication or treatment, it is enough to cause some worry. Therefore, Qi Gong is most effective as many people who practiced this method found that their sleep quality improved, more energized during day time, good stamina, less body stiffness, just within one or two weeks after practicing,
4. Practicing daily encourages perspiration hence an effective way to detox and improve our metabolism. According to Master Bai Yin, “Our body needs to detox daily”. The right choice of method is therefore very important to allow this process to happen and sustain good health.

It is simple and easy to learn. It is not restricted by time and location, fast and effective and is loved by many in this sector.
