Episode 141: Leveraging Your Body for Wellness
If you are in your 60s, 50s, or maybe even 40s, you likely notice aches and pains as you go about your day. Sometimes, when I’m sore, I assume it’s a normal part of aging and that I must deal with discomfort. Other times, I stop and ask myself, “Is this pain just because I’m aging? Or is this something I can prevent based on my choices? In this LIFE’s Inside Track episode, join Ken and Yetta with special guest Virginia Dawson from Sustainable Wellness Now. As a Level 3 Essentrics Instructor, Virginia will guide us in the role your balance, posture, and footing play in a healthy mind-body connection. Join us in understanding how we can get even more enjoyment from our homes, families, and daily lives by leveraging some new habits!
How to Improve Your Balance
Have you ever fallen UP the stairs? You know, you’re rushing up the steps, and then the next second, you’re smack on your belly? Or have you ever lost your balance on ice and landed on your rump?
