Balance!

If you want to stay fit and healthy bring balance into your life and into your exercise routine.

There are so many ways to do this and modifications available, to building up to standing on one leg with your eyes closed. I think the best way to start is to place one foot in front of the other (toes touching heels) and eyes open. You can have a hand on the wall to help and just rock your weight onto the front foot and then the back foot and let your feet do what they were created to do.


Then build from there. Swap feet. Eyes closed. Walking (pigeon steps) with eyes open. Walking with eyes closed. You are using your feet and ankles primarily with a big dose of proprioception.


It is good for us to do this. For our brain, our bodies, our life. It is a very mindful exercise too. As you are carrying out the balancing exercise take note of what you are saying to yourself as you do it. Is there negative mental chatter? Do you really need to be saying that to yourself? We all find balancing difficult, so give yourself a break and see it as a game. Wishing you a balanced day.
