  Gardening is one of the best ways to enjoy the great outdoors in a relaxing and satisfying way and performing senior balance exercises ahead of time will help you to stay steady and keep you from toppling over. Please see more information at All around us these days the beautiful world around us in greening up. Thankfully, we have made it to that time of the year when  Winter turns to Spring and the trees and plants start to bud. As a result, now is time to practice specific equilibrium routines to stay safe while working in the garden.  Gardening is a fantastic activity that enhances physical, emotional and mental well being. Gardening can be very satisfying as you watch beautiful flowers bloom and grow and trees blossom under your tender care. Gardening, however, involves many various movements and positions, which necessitate having good balance. Gardening activities can include weeding, raking, clipping bushes, picking up bags of clippings, planting bushes or seeds, mowing and moving dirt or rocks just to name a few activities. To participate in the joys of  gardening, an individual must maintain their steadiness while
– bending over to the ground
-reaching up or down
-lifting bags of mulch or fertilizer
-dragging hoses
-pulling weeds, pulling weeds, pulling weeds
-pushing a lawn mower
-stepping on or over rocks, railroad ties, pavers and various other items
    Consequently, in order to prevent falling during these challenging activities, it is essential to practice certain senior balance exercises to develop adequate stability before heading out to the garden.
