Brush Your Teeth, Improve Your Balance!
Everything I read about tooth brushing says the recommended time to thoroughly clean your whole mouth is to do it for two minutes.
Everything I read about senior citizens improving their balance is to practice by standing on one leg!
So, why not get an old fashioned minute timer and stand on one foot for a minute while you brush the teeth on one side of your mouth and then switch to the other foot for the second minute while you brush the other side.
Clean Teeth! Improved balance!
