Makes a lot of sense. Learn deep breathing and balance should keep us upright – at least as long as we stay sober.
There has been some evidence in past research that shows tai chi can help reduce falls.
A 2012 study from the Oregon Research Institute found that tai chi was the best exercise in treating balance issues in adults with Parkinson's disease.
And a 2012 review of 159 trials found that the martial art was the most successful exercise in reducing the risk of falling.
Additionally, a 2014 review also found that tai chi reduced the fear of falling in adults living in retirement communities.
