Moving every day can help you maintain balance and strength, stay independent, do your daily tasks, and remain well. Here are some movements that you can do at home on most or all days of the week. You don’t need any equipment. You may want to ask your health care provider about activities that are safe for you.
- Use smooth movements
- Take your time
- Breathe regularly
- Keep your knees slightly bent; don’t lock them
- Wear supportive footwear
- Use a chair, counter, walker, or wall for support
- Repeat each movement 3-5 times
- Add more every few days until you can do 15.
