If you’re having trouble balancing on this exhibit, imagine you are on a surfboard. We need to think about two things: having a strong support base and keeping our centre of gravity low. Your support base is the area between your feet. The wider this base, the easier it is to balance. This is why we feel much more stable on two legs than if you’re standing on one. If you keep your centre of gravity nice and low over your support base, you’ll find it much easier to stay balanced.
