Balance Exercise for Seniors: There are so many little ways you can challenge your balance. For example, stand on one foot when your chopping your vegies, hanging out the clothes, putting petrol in your car - just be imaginative - challeng it constantly.
Here you will find further examples . If you feel that you have extremely poor balance, begin with the first two examples and perhaps you can have a table nearby to grasp if you feel too unsteady. Challenge yourself as you improve
Balance happens in the brain through a bio-feedback system. For example if you're having a go at the first exercise below, you'll feel all sorts of muscle activity happening in your feet.
Your brain is sending muscle contraction signals to all these small muscles to get working. You're not consciously doing it yourself...
TIP !! ALWAYS do these exercises BAREFOOTED.
