Having trouble keeping your balance?

Posted by @johnbishop, Dec 13, 2018

I am at the age where I am always watching where I step so as not to lose my balance. Falling can be dangerous for some of us in the older generation. This is especially true when you have other health problems. It's important to work on being able to keep your balance. Today I received a Mayo Clinic on Controlling your Arthritis which I thought had some excellent and easy to do exercises to help gain better balance.

Slide show: Balance exercises
Adding a few simple exercises to your daily routine may help you prevent falls and improve your balance. See how to do them.

What are your biggest balance challenges? What kind of exercises help you?

@johnbishop thanks for this link. Where I live I started a chair exercise group incorporating some Yoga stances .I think we need to put more emphasis on exercises for our health.

@lioness that we do! I don't do as much as I should but that's because I don't set aside the time. I have routine in the morning that I do 10 to 15 minutes on my elliptical then to leg range of motion and stretching exercises. I need to take the same approach and set aside some time for the evenings. I just need to get through the holidays first ☺

@johnbishop That's great . You cant exercise 7 days a week all day it isn't good for the muscles anyway . I do everyday about 15 minutes especially stretching .
