Balance – this isn’t “work-life” balance, but physical balance.
Remember doing fun balance play as a child such as walking along a curb, a crack in the sidewalk, or even better – a log or board? When is the last time you had fun with a Balance activity?
A Question of Balance:
- When was the last time you tripped over something? Stubbed your toe on something? Miss-judged a step? — Did you catch yourself?
- When was the last time you really stretched to reach for something, extending over your “comfortable” center-of-balance?
- Do you have cats, dogs, children, or any other small and fast-moving objects in your home?
Balance can start to decrease in middle-age, and older adults with reduced balance ability are at greater risk of falling.
More than 1/3 of adults over the age of 65 fall each year in the US.
