Fall prevention exercises each day such as toe raises, marching, high knees, kick in the butt, leg extensions and squats!

I know that by doing these same few exercises each day I am preventing myself from falling!

Brush Your Teeth Instead of Eating

When I have a craving that comes at a time when I shouldn't eat, I brush my teeth. I think it's just a fact that no one wants to turn around and eat after brushing teeth, and it's great for your teeth. You can still brush your teeth if you're at work or out somewhere. And it doesn't have to be very involved, just a quick brush does the trick. emoticon

marching in place

While doing dishes or laundry, I constantly am marching in place. I throw a couple of lunges and jumping jacks in there as well. It's not much but can add up over a weeks time.

Dealing with stress

When I need to deal with stress whether is it from work, anger, whatever, I turn to music. Playing my keyboard always works for me.

Eat Mindfully

Eat consciously and calmly, focusing on the flavours and textures of the food. With an attitude of gratitude and appreciation slowly savour every mouthful emoticon

Deep breathing

When you feel stressed and it's making you think of food, do some deep breathing. Fill up your lungs with air the same manner in which a vase would be filled with water. Visualize the air filling up from the bottom, and when you exhale, empty starting at the top. This essentially forces you to be mindful. Good meditation.

Extra Steps

I spend a lot of time sitting at a desk for work, all day every day, but I will get up about every 30 to 45 minutes and take a stroll around the office. It breaks up the monotony of the day.

TV and Walking

OK, I admit it. I watch way too much TV. Do you? I have found some nice walking videos on the Internet...simple, but moving. So while I watch TV I also walk a mile or two with Leslie Sansone. If you like Jane Fonda, you can walk with her instead. Keep moving.
