As women in our 60s, we don’t like to think of ourselves as “seniors.” Even if we fit the age range, we are breaking the mould.
Many of us are still working. We have 20-30 years ahead of us. Why would we want to start worrying about issues that only impact “old people?”
Unfortunately, when it comes to accidents, it doesn’t matter how old you are in your head – it matters how stable you are in your body.
Many people are nervous about starting an exercise routine to improve their balance. Some feel that they might fall and hurt themselves. Others are embarrassed by how bad their balance has become.
In reality, it is much better to work on your balance in a structured environment than it is to wait for something unexpected to happen. Gentle yoga, and cjair yoga are great options.
Balance is a Huge Confidence Builder
Women of our generation are challenging aging stereotypes and living life in our own way. At the same time, sometimes our desires have a tendency to become disconnected from our physical reality.
It seems strange to say, but the way that we walk has a big impact on our psychology. When you are able to stand up straight, you feel more confident. When you have good balance, you are more willing to do the things that make you truly happy.
The next time that you go out for a walk, pay attention to your footsteps. Are you walking with confidence? Do you feel steady?
Society teaches us that big results require big changes. When it comes to getting the most from life after 60, society is wrong. Sometimes the biggest changes come from the smallest steps. Working on improving our balance is an excellent example of this.
“It never gets easier,
you just get stronger.”
Better Balance Means Fewer Falls
