So last month, I wrote about Balance vs. Equality. If you want to read it or review it, click here.
This month and next month, I want to actually give you a few movements that you may practice and play with on your own to improve your balance. I even made videos ! Why is balance so important? Well I’m not getting any younger and neither are you ! We physically balance every day of our lives. Walking is balancing as you move/ambulate from one foot to the other. If you slow down nearly every action you do, you are balancing at some point during it, even if it’s only for a second.
So I thought it would be fun to share a 1 MINUTE video I made demonstrating a few ways to stand up and sit down without using your hands. I probably had even more fun with my friend Barry as he taught me how to “spice” up the video ! 🙂 See if you can come up with your own ways! There are no right or wrong answers. I’d enjoy seeing anything you create!
3 Benefits from any of these movements:
- More strength
- More mobility
- More stability
- BONUS…. less fear of falling down. (Why? Because your body and brain now know it’s possible to get up)
- BONUS BONUS….LIVE LONGER! One study showed being able to do this may indeed increase your life span !
Here’s the video:
