I know we have all been in situations where one minute we are upright and the next minute we are on the ground! A fall can happen so quickly and can affect our lives forever. There is an art to falling which I was reminded of when I read the AARP magazine recently. The article, written by Michael Zimmerman, gives four simple steps to falling as follows:
- Stay Bent
- Protect your head
- Land on the meat
- Keep falling
Check out his article in the AARP The Magazine/Real Possibilities (www.aarp.org)! Always be mindful of your surroundings and carry your cell phone in case you need to make an emergency call.
