1/29/13 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 30. January 2013 09:05

Balance is one of those things you don't appreciate ( like 20/20 vision) until you loose it.  Improving your balance helps you avoid falls, keep your body aligned and helps with the issues discussed in yesterdays blog about posture.

Pilates works actively in this issue.  The focus is on awakening your feet’s touch receptors, which send messages to your brain every time you stand.  You can train these receptors through the study of Pilates (mat and reformer work).  You can also buy two 3”-5” balls and roll your bare feet over them while sitting at your desk, or at home while on the phone.  Also try to balance on the top of the ball while engaging your core. 

Every little bit helps!
