Do you have a favourite chair at your house ? Ideally, it is great to have a chair of one’s own.
I knew, at the entrance to old age ( which officially begins at age 60), that I needed a healthy aging chair.
It is good to shop carefully for a healthy aging chair. I sat in many before I chose my chair. It is leather, (sorry PETA), and ergonomically designed, for maximum comfort.
Ideally, a healthy aging chair should have two features, one for rocking, and one for reclining.
You know those stereotypes about old people sitting in rockers?
It turns out that there are many health benefits of rocking , including stress reduction. Much information is available on the internet on ” Health Benefits of Rocking Chairs”.
A second feature of a healthy aging chair is a reclining feature.
Sitting in a reclining position is comfortable for many people, since, if the chair is correctly fitted to the individual, it can be comfortable to the back.
The chair was a major investment, but, now that I am half way between Old Age and Extreme Old Age ( which officially begins at age 80), I know that it has been a vital component of a healthy aging process. ( The picture of me on my blog profile was a “selfie” I took several months ago. ) I rarely photograph myself, but an occasional photo can be a record of how the aging process is proceeding.
Let us thank God for his many blessings, including comfortable chairs, and the blessing of reaching Old Age.
