By doing exercises early in the morning, you can increase your heart rate, maximize the flexibility at your joints, stretch and strengthen your leg muscles, speed up your nerve muscle connections and prime your stability skills to help enhance your balance and reduce any risk for falling. Furthermore, early morning exercises can help to clear your brain from the fog of sleep and start your cognitive processes working better. By doing fitness activities early in the morning, you can warm up your muscles to help them produce force at their optimal productivity. Starting your day with gentle stretches also helps to work the kinks out of your muscles as well as work the stiffness and soreness out of your joints. To be specific in regards to stability routines, by practicing senior balance exercises at the beginning of your day you stimulate your body-brain connection in the balance centers and activate the balance reactions at your feet and ankles. Consequently, initiating your daily routines with balance training makes you are less likely to trip or fall and suffer an injury.

Start Your Day With Senior Balance Exercises

  By rehearsing specific senior balance exercises as you start your day, you will ready your brain and body for steadiness with all movement activities. Thankfully, it is easy to combine equilibrium routines with some of the morning activities that you do every day. As an example, while you are brushing your teeth you can stand on one foot and hold that position for 20 to 30 seconds, followed by Standing on the other foot for 20 to 30 seconds for three repetitions. Furthermore, while you wait for your coffee to brew in the kitchen you can practice tandem walking activities. Tandem walking involves walking along a line in a heel to toe manner where are you touch the heel of the front foot with the toes of your rear foot. With tandem walking, you will help to strengthen and speed up the balance reactions at your feet and ankles. These balance reactions are strategic to help respond to any changes in the angle of your foot placement such as walking from hardwood floors  on to thick carpet or walking up and down stairs. The balance reactions at your feet and ankles help you to adapt to different surfaces under your feet. Another example of practicing steadiness exercises early in the morning can include standing near the counter and reaching up into the cupboard without holding on to the counter. You can learn how to accurately perform these and other senior balance exercises by following along with a demonstration of a knowledgeable physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
