For seniors, balance can be a struggle. Balance issues often lead to difficulty walking, decreased mobility, and falls. Incorporating balance exercises into their daily routine will help seniors maintain an independent lifestyle.
Easy ways to incorporate balance exercises into a daily routine:
1. First thing in the morning
Many seniors have better cognitive function early in the day. Use this time of day to incorporate exercise into their regular routine.
2. Before walks
3. Tai Chi or Qi Gong
If you and your loved one attend any sort of group fitness class or exercise from home, why not try Tai Chi or Qi Gong? These practices offer a gentle way to improve balance and are highly recommended for seniors.
