More email questions coming. Here’s one that I get quite often from women who are afraid of falling?

Q: What exercises one should do to improve sense of balance?

Balance_Web_6755A: Serious balance issues require medical attention. However some loss of balance is quite common as we age. Signals from vision, bones, and joints, the vestibular system in the inner ear, and the nervouse system, are sent to the brain which interprets them into an awareness of the position of their body. This is our proprioceptive sense and one of its functions is balance.

Trouble is, the systems collecting the information controlling balance begin to deteriorate with age, particularly if we’ve been inactive. And this process accelerates after 50.

But exercises involving proprioception and balance can help slow down our aging clock. Here’s one you can do at home.

Stand with your feet together. Slowly pick up one leg, bending the knee, and place the side of your foot against your opposite calf or knee. Holding on to a chair or wall, find your balance. When you feel ready, let go and slowly bring your arms up in front of your chest. Hold for about 10 seconds (or as long as you can). When it get’s too easy, try doing it with your eyes closed.

SWIM-WEBI’ve found so much solace from the heat  in swimming this summer. Fast or slow,  it’s a wonderful workout for body, mind and spirit. I’ve built up to 100 laps a day, over the last few weeks, enjoying every minute. If you have the opportunity to take a swim, try it out.


Meanwhile, if you need a little push to exercise, here is a new research study you might want to check out.


A newly published study funded by The National Institutes of Health shows a 20% reduction in stroke risk for both women and men over 45 who exercised versus those did not. Men got the best results 4 times or more a week. While women reaped a similiar benefit exercising just 1-4 times a week.

Here’s a link to an NIH article on the study “NIH-funded study suggests that moving more may lower stroke risk.”
