Getting Up After The Fall

There was a great article in the Star-Telegram written by Marty Sabota concerning falls in people of a certain age.  You can read the article at this link:  http://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/community/fort-worth/article36208161.html.

Fals 1In the article there are several tips to cut the risk of falls.  As we mature, we need to do more balancing exercising.  Recently talk show host Wendy Williams talked about a fall she took while wearing athletic footwear–not her trademark heels.  She even laughed at herself.  As Wendy stated, she did fall, but she was able to get up easily, and she was not sore the next morning–she exercises.  You have to keep moving.

Just try sitting on the floor and getting up without assistance, if you find that you can’t or it’s hard, then you need to get to work on getting in shape. Believe it or not yoga can assist in working on balance.  There are many forms of yoga to fit your age and your ability. Don’t think you will ever fall, maybe not, but will you be able to help someone up if they fall?

Remember “thisisyourbestyear“.  Most of us will fall, but how many of us will be able to get up?
