Did you know you can easily TEST how likely you are to have a long “Health-span”, based on your current trajectory? Well, you can!
Let me show you two reliable tests that you can do yourself to determine your potential “Longevity” - how long you will be healthy, independent, and less likely to fall and injure yourself!
Drum roll please!
1. WALKING UPSTAIRS
Walk up 4 flights in less than 1 minute.
WHAT IT TELLS YOU:
If you can manage 4 flights in 1 minute it means you have pretty good functional capacity in your joints and muscles and a healthy heart.
The faster you can do 4 flights the lower your risk of dying even from things like cancer, heart disease, or anything else!
Do stairs everyday if possible and take them whenever you have the choice!
Instead of hating stairs, and moving to a house that doesn’t have them, thank the stairs every time you climb them because they are helping you stay strong and healthy!
2. GETTING OFF THE FLOOR WITHOUT USING YOUR HANDS:
Sit on the floor.
Without using your hands, or leaning on anything, make your way to standing.
WHAT IT TELLS YOU:
If you can do this skill it means that not only are you Strong enough to get yourself up, but you also have the Range of Motion at your joints to allow you to get up and down with relative ease.
The faster you can get up, and the better control you have, the lower your chance of breaking a hip or falling. Falls are often fatal to seniors.
In countries where the people sleep and toilet on the ground, they get up and down from the ground or from a full squat position numerous times a day. The elderly rarely die from breaking their hips in those countries.
Practice the skill of getting up and down from the ground without using your hands every day! Do it in your yoga practice and teach it to your students!
Not only can it save your life but this skill translates to being able to enjoy Movement in general which maintains your physical and mental health throughout your whole lifespan. ... See MoreSee Less
