One way to improve your balance is to practice in a safe place. Stand on your right foot, lift your left foot off the ground, and count to 5 for a set of 10 times. Then, switch sides and stand on your left foot. Repeat three times. Now do it with your eyes closed for just 10 seconds.
When I read this new balance practice, I realize how easy is sounds, I know it is challenging for me. When you practice improving your balance, it gets better. If it doesn't, talk with your doctor right away.
Balance is so important in life and in developing your career. Each day I practice improving my balance. Every week, I take an inventory of the balance in my life. Michael Gott developed this very powerful simple, self inventory to take each week and experience no negative self judgement while doing it. Unlike the balance exercise standing on one foot, you have to be self reflective and get real with yourself. It has helped me tremendously. If you want to learn more about where you are in balance in your life, consider taking a moment to practice doing something for the first time.
