've bumped into a few people recently who mentioned that they know their balance isn't very good and they seem to have a hard time finding time to work on it.
How do you know if your balance is sub-par? Read this article. It has all the detail you need.
But, if you want to improve your balance, here's a really simple way to do it.
Buy an electronic tooth brush that has a built in timer. Most of these tools now come with a 2 minute timer (that's how long you're supposed to brush your teeth).
Stand on one leg while you brush your teeth in the morning; the other leg while you brush your teeth in the evening.
Two minutes is a long time but just do your best. Your brain will figure it out.
Remember, good balance keeps your brain younger.

Do you have a copy of my new book, "The Little Book of Sparks"? Here's what one reader had to say about it. "This
was great reading. "The Little Book of Sparks" inspired me to live a
healthier lifestyle. Each chapter in the book motivates me to do
something daily to keep my mind and body healthy and active. This is a
book that's entertaining, and filled with simple suggestions that when
applied to our daily routines make a positive difference in our health
and happiness- David."
