Try using a wobble board instead to improve your balance.

A wobble board is an exercise device used to improve balance, functional strength and mental focus. Wobble boards have a flat surface supported over a less stable cylinder or ball. Balancing on the flat surface challenges your muscles and proprioception as your body and mind adapt to moving on the unstable support below. Wobble boards are available in different sizes and shapes and can be modified for different ability levels. Other balance devices such as balance balls, cushions and rocker boards provide similar benefits that include: Improving proprioception and balance, improving functional strength, improving mental focus and preventing injuries.

Control your breathing and feel better with deep breathing exercises.

If you’ve ever had an asthma attack or respiratory illness, you know what it feels like to breathe shallowly because you can’t breathe more deeply. But even people who don’t have these conditions may breath shallowly without realizing it. Shallow breathing contributes to tension, fatigue, high blood pressure, increased heart rate and poor digestion. Through deep breathing exercises, you can override your body’s physiological responses to stress and illness and improve your energy and sense of well-being.

How I Cured My Anxiety

Charlie Hoehn has nailed it in this post. His solution to anxiety? Play! Life is about playing. Sure we need to make a living, but too often we allow fear and anxiety to push us to work harder and faster. If we are dealing with an illness or injury, we let fear hold us down. No matter who you are, or what you are dealing with in your life, learn to let go and play. “A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” – François-René de Chateaubriand

Exercise can help reduce all three aspects of stress.
