My favorite way to improve balance is to stand on a foam pad with one leg and balance 5 minutes per day, per leg. You can keep your sneakers on and just stand with your arms out and eyes open. Position yourself in a safe spot and touch the ground with the opposite foot to maintain balance as needed. After about 2 minutes, you’ll feel the outside of your hips begin to fatigue, as this drill improves reaction times between the foot and hip.
