Heartbroken Seniors Advised To Stay Active As A Way To Combat Post Valentine's Day Blues
Seniors on Valentines Day Seek to Stay Active
Gravity Mobility Aids, the makers of canes and walking sticks for men namely called Handy Walking Cane, understand the plight of the widow, and how discouraging a romantic holiday can be to someone who has lost their best friend and soul mate. Now that Valentine's Day is over but the ill feelings might still be firmly in mind, it is time for seniors to focus on being active. Distraction can be productive, and if keeping active helps a person better manage loneliness, grief, and isolation, it is strongly recommended.
Doctors recommend that patients grieving take the time to appreciate platonic friendships, and to spend time with other friends and family members. In addition, seniors are advised to do something for others, whether that's volunteering or spending more time with family and sharing stories. Even something simple like spending time with a pet can be a life-affirming experience.
One of the most enjoyable activities to take part in is taking in the fresh outside air, whether that's gardening, planting flowers, or taking a walk in the park. Many seniors want to do this but are afraid to venture out in the open because of a fear of falling or because they don't want to use a traditional canes and walking sticks .
The Handy Walking Stick from Gravity Mobility Aids is a nice compromise, as it allows users to walk with ease and comfort, even if they require a cane. The design of the walking stick favors a wider palm grip, which is better for balancing and for minimizing hand strain. The cane is also collapsible and size-adjustable. The bottom of the cane has an elastic rubber sole along with prongs that each have their own stabilizing rubber lines underneath. These features help users to keep balanced, even if the stick makes heavy contact with the floor.
The Handy Walking Cane's freestanding ability make it an ideal walking companion, as the design eliminates the need to lean the stick on a larger base, and minimizes the risk of the cane falling over. The stick is created to simply stand in place, waiting for someone to pick it up at any moment. Dropping the cane is unlikely, and users are even encouraged to use both hands while the cane patiently "waits" for further travel.
While losing a loved one is emotionally distressing, the gift of life is still a powerful motivator and a healthy activity. Treating one's self to short-term and long-term goals, and reaching out to the community, are two ways to recover from post Valentine's Day blues and start enjoying life all over again.
