The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke states that “Without sleep you can’t form or maintain the pathways in your brain that let you learn and create new memories, and it’s harder to concentrate and respond quickly.”
Can I improve my balance with exercise? This is a question asked by people in many circumstances. I was once asked this question by a woman who was recovering from a stroke. She was young, had experienced multiple strokes, and didn’t have good balance. She wanted to improve her physical fitness, but she was worried about her ability to do so. Whether you too are a stroke victim, have osteoporosis, are an older adult, have MS, are pregnant, or just feel unsteady on your feet, know that exercise can help improve your balance!
