If there’s one subject that younger folks, as well as many older people, try to avoid like the plague, it’s aging. While we all know that we can’t stay young forever, that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend that we can. Aging is one of those things that sneaks up on everyone. One day you’re doing physical things without much thought, and the next, you’re wondering what happened to your youthful vitality. Like it or not, the numbers add up, and our bodies start becoming a bit weaker as we age. Of course, there are exceptions for those who adopt an extremely healthy lifestyle like late fitness guru Jack LaLanne, who was famous for doing incredible physical feats that most a quarter of his age couldn’t do.
However, you don’t have to be a gym junkie to maintain vigor in your later years; it only takes finding a fun physical activity that can keep you active. Many folks look at older celebrities who seem nearly ageless such as Jennifer Lopez, George Clooney, and Johnny Depp, and think they need to be rich and famous to remain youthful. However, that’s far from the case. And the 82-year-old Grandma in this video, which has since gone viral, proves that when she breaks out into a super-energetic dance routine of that’s dropped jaws across the internet. The video starts off with her walking into a kitchen with a long cane.
The woman pokes at a bottle of vitamins with her cane before sitting down and pretending to chug down the entire bottle. The next thing you know, she’s feeling pretty good and gets up without her walking stick. I think you know where this is going.
The next thing you know, this 82-year-old Grandma is doing a dance made famous in the 1920s known as the Charleston.
And we must say, she not just dancing “good for her age,” she really killing it!
We would dare say that she could give any professionally trained 20-something a run for their money with her moves and fluid motions.
Dancing is a wonderful way to stay fit and active, plus it doesn’t feel like exercise. Many elderly care facilities have adopted dancing in their daily activities to help sharpen the minds, bodies, and spirits of their residents.
