WHAT TO DO
Have you ever tried to walk backwards? It is difficult, but great to improve your balance, core strength and coordination, says celebrity personal trainer Nadya Fairweather (u-shapape.co.uk).
Give yourself enough space to fit in about 10-12 steps. Step back into a lunge with your right foot, press the front (left) foot and without it getting into the middle, you go straight into a dropout. Now print with your front foot (right) and go back to the dropout. Keep alternating from left to right until you have leaked out and traveled backwards at least ten times. Try for 8-10 rounds.

WHAT TO EAT
Your diet can also help with coordination and balance, says nutritionist Shona Wilkinson (shona.wilkinson.com).
Blueberries contain an ingredient called resveratrol. This has been shown to help improve motor coordination and balance. Like blueberries, resveratrol can be found in red grapes. . . and red wine!
Organic meat contains a lot of vitamin B12, which helps our central nervous system, which helps to control your balance. If you have problems with your balance, look at your vitamin B12 intake.
Almonds are great for helping our nuclear stability, which in turn helps our balance because they are a good source of magnesium, which is also great for anxiety.
