   Staying active and independent is an important goal of many older individuals and practicing senior balance exercises  can help maintain  the utmost quality of life. Please see Regular exercise and physical activity are important to the physical and mental health of almost everyone, including older adults. Being physically active can help you continue to do the things you enjoy and stay independent as you age. Regular physical activity over long periods of time can produce long-term health benefits. That’s why health experts say that older adults should be active every day to maintain their health. In addition, regular exercise and physical activity can reduce the risk of developing some diseases and disabilities that develop as people grow older. In some cases, exercise is an effective treatment for many chronic conditions. For example, studies show that people with arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes benefit from regular exercise. Exercise also helps people with high blood pressure, balance problems, or difficulty walking. In specific, practicing certain senior balance exercises can help improve steadiness and enable you to stay active in other ways. Additionally, one of the great things about physical activity is that there are so many ways to be active. For example, you can be active in short spurts throughout the day, or you can set aside specific times of the day on specific days of the week to exercise. Furthermore, incorporating equilibrium routines for short spurts a few times a day will help you to stay mindful of your balance as well as helping to enhance your steadiness.

Practice Senior Balance Exercises Daily

     In order to stay active and independent as you age, be sure to rehearse senior balance exercises on a daily basis. Even practicing equilibrium routines for one to two minutes a few times a day will help you build stability with movement activities. Additionally, you can easily incorporate steadiness exercises in your daily activities. For example, while you are brushing your teeth, you can practice centering your body weight in the middle of your feet to establish strong connections between the sensory input in your feet and the balance center in your brain. Furthermore, you can rehearse standing on one foot in the kitchen while you are waiting for your coffee to brew. You can learn these specific stability techniques and appropriate senior balance exercises by following along with the senior balance exercises presented by a knowledgeable Physical Therapist in the Exercise For Balance DVD.
