I think most of us on this site have problems getting back up off the floor, and if like me you are prone to falling over then we end up on the floor more often than we want to!!
I want to share with you all my technique for getting up again. I did find this method on a web site but as i can no longer find it I shall do my best to explain:
Roll over so that you are on your hands and knees
Place your hands flat very firmly on the floor
Bring one knee up, so you are on the front of that foot
Put your weight on your hands and push your bum up into the air, and allow your other leg to come up
Now you have one leg bent and one leg nearly straight
As your bum goes higher into the air, move your other leg forward towards your hands
Now you have your weight on the front of your feet and your hands
Tip gently back so that your feet are flat on the floor, at the same time walk your hands backwards towards you. Your hands will no longer be flat on the floor but they must keep you steady
Now you will be standing bent over with your hands gently on the floor
Bring your hands up slowly and straighten yourself up
I hope that i've explained this well enough and that you can follow it. Please do try it and do let me know if anyone has any problems or questions.
This is not an elegant movement, but it means you can get up without depending on someone else or another object
