Did you know that having good balance is important for many everyday activities, such as going up and down the stairs? Maintaining good balance also helps you walk safely and avoid tripping and falling over objects in your way.

The stand on one foot exercise is a simple balance exercise that you can do almost anytime, anywhere, and as often as you like. You can do it while waiting for the bus or standing in line at the grocery store. As you progress in your exercise routine, you can add challenges to help your balance even more.
