#6 Up/Down from the floor – The ability to get up from the floor without any assist from a hand or knee has been tied to longer living. You have probably seen people pop up and down from the floor as if they haven’t a care in the world while others are heaving and pushing. Different environments require different ways of getting up and down. “Practice with assists, such as a chair to lean on. Once you are good at that, challenge yourself to find another way. Children don’t learn to get up in one day, and you don’t have to, either,” encourages Feldenkrais teacher, MaryBeth Smith.
