I am passionate about:
co-cultivating the soil on which the beautiful, bold and brilliant grow.
A little known fact about me is:
I compulsively journal and take notes!
Somerville, MA, United States
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"
Learner, writer, connecting the dots and remembering that all the dots are drawn on something.
Quotes I try to live by: ________________________________________________________________________________________
“We act not to bring about an outcome but about ourselves.”
“Choose where you pay attention, and never do it alone.”

I love this! It made me think of how people do resistance training (wearing extra weights etc..) so that they could simulate themselves in harder circumstances and become flexible once they get back to normal. Another example is runners do sledge dragging exercises. What if the elderly also do a bit of progressive resistance training? Much of how we respond to the world depends on our habituation, so training at every level is useful.
This post is about empathy - putting ourselves in the elderly's experiences. Is there a way that we can easily simulate the elderly get our experiences more easily? How about practice walking on a springy surface so they may feel lighter?
HI Bettina, This also reminds me of WWII Veteran Develops an App to Connect with Others where they use Whatsapp to communicate in group - an existing solution. I wonder if a physical robot (or AI) can also integrate this work of communicating with families, neighbors and friends - will be an idea to explore in the Ideation phase.
