Marching-in-place exercise
  1. Stand with a chair in front of you and a wall behind you. If you begin to fall, you may use them for support. Standing in a corner will also work.
  2. Stand with your feet slightly apart (as you normally stand) and your arms at your side.
  3. March in place, lifting your knees high toward the ceiling.
  4. Do this 20 times.

Do this exercise twice a day. Try to progress to doing this 30 times and then with your eyes closed.
