Falls are a major problem as we age.  AgeUK [2018] report that:

Improving balance through mindful movement can address this.  As Blackaby (2018) comments: “As we age it is noticeable that in the population at large balance seems to get worse and many people sustain injuries through falls.  In the very elderly this can be the start of a slippery slope: someone falls, injures themselves and, in the intervening weeks during the recovery loses strength and mobility, rather quickly finding themselves feeling considerably worse off than before the fall.  Balance really does improve with practice, so it is worth persevering.”
