Better Balance For Life : Banish The Fear Of Falling With Simple Activities Added To Your Everyday RoutineBook - 2018
This 10-week program incorporates simple exercises for balance and posture into regular daily activities. Scheduling disciplined workout sessions is not required! Four simple skills are introduced each week, built into everyday habits like brushing your teeth, rinsing the dishes, putting on socks, or going up stairs. Each challenge gradually increases in difficulty to build strength and confidence. For example, you'll begin by brushing your teeth while standing on one leg, steadying yourself with your fourth finger. By the end of the program, you'll be brushing your teeth, standing on one leg, with your eyes closed! When you can stand on one leg and button your shirt, you are ready to find your center of gravity and trust your ability to walk on uneven pavement. You can stand up without holding on!
