If you’re wondering how to get better balance, you’ve come to the right place.
Testing our balance in different ways helps stimulate our balance reflexes and our brain as well.
This video is designed to change up our exercises so that we can ward off the boredom of our regular balance practice and test our skills from a different angle.
How To Get Better Balance Using Household Items
In this video we’re using yoga blocks or a mixing bowl to simulate stepping over things or around them.
It mimics raising our leg to climb the stairs or to put on a pair of pants–everyday activities we might take for granted until such time as we find ourselves feeling a little unsteady.
And, who hasn’t caught their toe on something or hit their foot on an object and found themselves tripping forward and then breathing a sigh of relief that they didn’t end up on the floor?
We can rely on our balance reflexes to kick in and catch us through muscle memory even better if we practice our balance.
Falls are one of the leading causes of injury for senior adults and can pose a serious threat to our mobility.
It only takes a few minutes a few times a week to keep yourself in check.
Like anything, the more you do it the more benefits you will see.
So add it into your workouts to insure your future quality of life and guarantee of independence.
