4 Ways to get better balance:

1) Stand on one leg while talking on the phone. Start with your eyes open, then see how long you can last with them closed.

2) Stand on an unstable surface- a rolled up exercise mat or towel, or a balance board- and do squats or arm curl while holding three-pound dumbells.

3) Strength -train your legs twice a week; stronger muscles will keep you from falling.

4) After you have been doing these exercises for 6 months, retest your balance to see how much improvement you've made.
