you’re twice as likely to die within 10 years! https://www.studyfinds.org/cant-stand-one-leg-early-death/
I can get up off the floor without using my hands or arms in any way. Takes about three seconds. Minimal core strength and technique is all it takes.

You could die tomorrow whether you can balance or not.
Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among adults age 65 and older, and the age-adjusted fall death rate is increasing.1,2 The age-adjusted fall death rate is 64 deaths per 100,000 older adults.1
Fall death rates among adults age 65 and older increased about 30% from 2009 to 2018. The increase was observed in 30 states and the District of Columbia. The fastest growing rate was among adults aged 85 and older (about 4% per year).1
The rising number of deaths from falls among older adults can be addressed by screening for fall risk and intervening to address risk factors such as use of medicines that may increase fall risk, or poor strength and balance.
Govern your actions accordingly.
“Everyone behaves badly--given the chance.”
― Ernest Hemingway
