Stand barefoot on a hard flat surface with one foot in front of the other, heel to toe, hands crossed on your chest. ( Make sure you are near something you can grab on to, in case you feel tippy.) Close your eyes and start counting slowly. When and if you lose your balance, write down the number you reached. repeat three times and take an average.
If you made it to 48 without teetering, you are in a healthy balance zone. Anything less means that you could benefit from some balance training.
