“The only real way to tell when we are balanced and we are not is by means of the weight distribution in the feet.
When standing, the weight should be on all 3 points of the foot, and this brings a certain amount of balance.
The first point is the heel, the second is the ball of the foot and the third is situated on the outside of the foot at the beginning of the little toe.
** if you are habitually standing on only two, or even one of these 3 points, you will be less balanced, and consequently you will need to tense many more muscles to keep you upright.”
