Stand on One Foot

It’s that slippery time of year, when each time we leave the house we risk slipping on the ice and having a fall.   We may not have as much snow or the subzero temps like last year, however it’s still icy out there!

One thing you can do everyday to help your balance is simply stand on one foot.   You can stand on one foot at a time while brushing your teeth each morning to make it a part of your routine.  Consistently working on your balance is going to help you tremendously as you navigate the slick sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways.

Working on balance at home – big and small balances.

A great one to start with is Vrksasana or Tree Pose.  Standing on one leg and placing the opposite foot along the inner ankle, calf, or thigh of the standing leg.
