6 Simple Ways to Build Your Balance

Balance is a component of all movement.

I’ve read once that sprinting, for example, requires us to lose and regain our balance on one leg in less than 1/10th of a second. Now, I am not a sprinter, but like many of us, I am well aware of the downside of losing my balance. Today, that might mean a minor injury or a bit of embarrassment, but as we get older, the loss of balance and a resulting injury could seriously impact our ability to live on our own, complete activities of daily living with ease or bring a loss of confidence when moving through the world.
