The ability to walk is too often taken for granted.

 
But think about how reduced walking ability would affect your life. Think about the loss of mobility, independence and ability to interact with others. It would seriously degrade your quality of life.

Reality! Walking ability declines with age. Not just old age. For most people, the neuromuscular and skeletal decline starts in the late 20’s. While hardly noticed, it progressively slows and declines until the 50’s or 60’s. At this point declines can accelerate and walking can become effortful.

Rosy side of getting older

Rosy side of getting older

An earlier version of this appeared on Linked Pulse
 
Getting older isn’t what it used to be! Boomers have had 15 or more years added to their lifespan since they were born – the first generation where this has happened.

Sure, there have always been some individuals who lived to a ripe old age. But now 10,000 people a day are turning 65 in America. Many of them do not see themselves as they saw 65 year-olds when they were younger adults. They don’t think of themselves as old. Old applies to their parents, many who are still alive. Boomers are not old but ripe for action!
