Improve your balance by standing on one leg with eyes clo...

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 2 mins 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 2 minutes on one leg one day, and another 2 minutes on another leg another day, that is not good enough to complete the challenge. However, if you manage 2 minutes 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.

“Took me too long... But worth the sweat! In 2 tries on the right leg, I was able to make 2 minutes and 20 seconds on the last try. And in 1 try on the left leg, I was able to make 2 minutes and 13 seconds. It's a wonder though how I'm right-handed and it took me longer to achieve the goal on the right leg. ;)”
