Better Balance In 5 Easy Steps

“On The Go” Balance Exercises That Fit Into Your Day

Would you be surprised to know that one-third of adults 65+ suffer a fall each year?

How’s your balance?…

Though the onset isn’t that obvious, our balance starts declining after we reach 50. A recent study by researchers at UCLA Health found that:

  • Adults in their 30s and 40s could stand on one foot for a minute or more.
  • Adults in their 50s decreased to 45 seconds
  • Adults in their 70s decreased to 28 seconds

Balancing our busy schedules is challenging enough, so rather than adding another “to do” on the list, I put together some foundational “balance builders” that you can easily incorporate into your daily lifestyle routine — like when you’re standing in line at the grocery store, cooking, or even watching television.

I know you’re with me when it comes to adding some stability in our lives, so let’s upgrade our balance with a new approach that supports us for the long term. These five low impact exercises engage our core and multiple muscle groups to improve our balance and coordination. They’re specifically intended for women like you and me who want to navigate our days with confidence and ease.

Arriving here is a choice, so thanks in advance for checking out how the next 15 minutes may help improve your life for years to come. Learn the basics and then practice them at various times throughout the day to keep it fun.

I always get a kick from the looks I get while practicing tandem stance in line at the post office. Be inventive, be you, and have fun adding balance into your day with five easy steps.
