Slippery Floors and Yoga Mats

We, like most people here have tile floors. Fortunately, ours are textured so aren't deadly slippery like many.

We are extremely careful when it rains, or anytime that liquid gets on the floors. It finally happened with wet feet coming in from the pool. DOWN, and hard.

It's amazing how a quickly applied ice pack can undo impact damage to soft tissue. We were lucky.

So, what to do? Both Soriana and Bodega sell inexpensive yoga mats in a wide variety of colors. Some even have a light pattern that is quite nice. We cut one in half and it has done the job. A bit of cushion, no slipperiness, and maid friendly and we have the other half for when the first one gets dirty.

Try it and be safe!

Hope you're okay and nothing fractured. Falling when over 50 y/o can too often be a life-changing experience. I love our ancient slick floors, too, for their coolness except when stepping out of the shower without a floor mat or when floors are wet after mopping. We always wear flip flops around the house except in the bedrooms. And we try to always hold onto railings going up and down our stairs that can also sometimes get wet from watering or rain blowing in through the door to our azotea (or a dog that had an accident).
