Balance

BALANCE. Stand on one foot. Balance. Breathe. Then stand on the other. Balance. Breathe. Any variation. Just find your balance and breathe. Why? Β So many reasons. For those of us who still consider ourselves young-ISH, today’s reason is about aging well, keeping all of our parts intact and not falling…by practicing our balance now, today. More on this in the Washington Post today, http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/work-on-your-balance-now-to-avoid-falls-when-youre-older/2013/06/24/5c49349c-d813-11e2-a9f2-42ee3912ae0e_story.html

If balance is hard for you, keep practicing, hold onto a wall at first and get used to shifting weight from one foot, and then the other. Also, use a spot, keeping your eyes focused on a point on the floor about 4-5 feet in front of you.

If balance is easy for you, keep practicing, challenging yourself by lifting gaze upward or away to one side. Or even closing your eyes.

 

Do #yoga. Today. Everyday.
