Lilia V It took me several months of consistent practice and now I can do it every time. My balance has improved so much, it's unbelievable. Aiming for 2mins on each leg now...:o)
Improve your balance by standing on one leg with eyes closed - beginner
A simple way to improve your balance is to stand in the corner of the room (no, you haven't been naughty), close your eyes, cross your arms across your chest, then lift one leg.
To complete this challenge you have to do this on both your right leg and your left leg for 60 seconds each without falling over/putting that raised leg down. This HAS to be done concurrently/or very close to it. In other words, if you manage 1 minute on one leg one day, and another 1 minute on another leg another day, that is not good enough to complete the challenge. However, if you manage 1 minute on one leg then it takes three or four goes before you manage it on the other leg, but in the same session, then you can claim completion.
It's not as easy as it sounds & it's harder if you're not wearing any shoes.

Tamara A Left leg done, it was a fight to the finish...it actually hurt! Happy I incorporate core work all the time! : ))
Emiline M I'm going to have to try this again tomorrow. Didn't quite make it but came close a few times. I find that bending my knee slightly helps.
Andy D Done. Much more difficult on the right than the left leg. Best advice I can give is to try to relax; if you tense up, you'll quite start to drift sideways. And concentrate on your breathing, it makes a difference.
Alan S Managed to do it with my right leg, and got to within 10s twice with my left. Bah. Maybe next time...
Laura S Was surprised to find this much easier on my left leg than the right. First try on the left, took 2 tries for the right.
Tiffany E Almost there! So close, but so far away... lol My balance actually has improved. Haven't finished the challenge yet, but maybe by this coming weekend.
Tiffany E Today went a lot better. Still a few breaks, but went longer before the first break and kept eyes closed entire time. Doesn't seem as hopeless as before. Can't wait to complete this challenge. :)
Tiffany E This is hard... Broke a couple times on my right leg... Had to open my eyes a few times on my left leg. Won't press "Complete" until I can do it with eyes closed and no breaks for the entire time. *Sigh*
