Happy Wellness Wednesday! Today, Episcopal Retirement Services Wellness Director Chloe Hough shows us a lateral toe tap exercise.

Lateral toe taps help maintain and improve strength in the hip muscles. This also is one of many exercises and activities seniors can do to boost their balance.

You will need a stair step or a small box, such as one that holds shoes or cereal. Don't worry: The box doesn't need to be sturdy because you'll just be tapping your foot on it, not putting any weight onto it. Give it a try, and see what you think! Click here to see more exercise demonstrations.
