If you have read my last blog and could relate to what my fellow tennis player said about his legs getting longer, then you may also appreciate what another friend said to me…why do I now have to hold onto something when putting my socks or tights on?
This is a lady in her early 50s but already was finding that her balance isn’t as good as it was. this is because, unless we practise using our balance mechanisms then they do become sluggish and reactions slower. This lady is now practising balancing on one foot every time she brushes her teeth and after about three weeks has found that she can now balance when putting on her socks. Now that is a great outcome and so easily achieved.
I saw this joke that really sums up this and my last blog…
One ‘older’ lady says to her friend, ‘I went to an aerobics class the other day. I stretched, bounced about, fell over a few times, it was agony…by the time I got my leotard on the class was over’
