  1. Put one foot on the bottom step of a stair or a foot stool and stand while maintaining balance.
  2. To add a challenge in the above exercise raise arms overhead and back down 10 times while maintaining balance.
  3. In the same postion as the first exercise alternate tapping foot on the step or foot stool between 10 to 20 times.

For all of the above exercises always make sure there is a chair behind you or a railing or counter to hold on to.
