I was reading an article and found it a bit interesting, so I thought I would share with you. Do you notice the older we get we tend to wobble more, and aren't as stable on our feet? Well, did you know that we lose up to three pounds of muscles - and 10% of our strength - every decade after the age of 30!
They say if you spend 30 minutes twice a week of doing simple exercises like squats and bicep curls it can boost your strength and balance by 52% in just four weeks. That cuts your risk of falls and injuries by 67%.
Strong legs make you less likely to stumble, and strong arms help you right yourself before you collapse.
Just something to keep in mind, all!

Hint 1: Soup away aches
Are you congested and achy? Spoon up Grandma's delicious chicken soup!
Chicken is rich in immunity-boosting zinc, and all the veggies deliver hundreds of anti-inflammatory nutrients.
Research shows this ever-so-popular comfort food cuts symptoms by 55%. Even better...have it before bed - women who do drift off 30 minutes sooner and sleep 25% more deeply.
Listen to music, audiobooks or podcasts in the shower, at the beach... anywhere!
Hint 2: Repurpose Trays and Bowls
Reusing some old dishes as organizers can help you finally tame that junk drawer.
Place a non-slip mat underneath to keep them from shifting when you open and close the drawer.
'Go Green' Hint: Unplug appliances when not in use
Small appliances such as TVs, cable boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game system use energy even when they’re turned off.
Consider unplugging items that won’t be used regularly, or get a power strip with switches to save even more energy.
