For many seniors, planning for retirement and beyond can be difficult, to say the least. It's hard to think about where you might be in five or 10 years and what your needs might be, but it's important to do so in order to prepare as much as possible. Whether you need to think about making changes to your home, your lifestyle, or your health, assessing your needs now will prevent any nasty surprises down the road.
While many seniors want to live at home for as long as possible, health issues or injuries can prevent that or make it much more difficult. Take a look at what your current needs are and whether they are being met by your home. Will there be safety issues if your health declines? What sort of changes can you make to your house to ensure that you and your partner are comfortable both now and in the future? There are also financial issues to consider, especially if you think you might need to downsize your home or pay for long-term care.
As we age, it is inevitable that we will be unable to perform certain tasks, at least not as quickly and easily as we used to. Your joints might crack and groan when you get out of bed in the morning and you just can't move around as easily. Aging is to blame, but this is not to say that you can't get back a little of that flexibility and feel good doing it. Yoga isn't just for the young – it's for the young at heart, too.
