My neighbor broke her foot last week and has been on crutches. At first I didn’t think much of it, but I have been to her house to help her with simple chores like taking out the trash and bringing groceries in from the car.
I noticed how inconvenienced her life has been since the injury and how difficult it is for her to do do simple things that I take for granted every day.
This immediately got me thinking about bone health. I thought about how important it is to have a healthy strong foundation that lasts your whole life. Sometimes I feel invincible and think, “oh that would never happen to me” but I’m sure my neighbor felt the same way when she was younger.
