Your equilibrium begins to decline as early as your mid-30s. If yours is less than optimal, doing the balance exercises below will help you almost immediately.
- Stand on one leg while talking on the phone. Start with your eyes open, then see how long you can last with them closed.
- Stand on an unstable surface - a rolled up mat or towel- and do squats or arm curls while holding light dumbbells.
- Strength train your legs twice a week; stringer muscles will keep you from falling.
- After you have been doing these exercises for six months, retest your balance to see how much improvement you've made.
