Circle your arms slowly to stretch the upper body.
Sit down and extend your knee straight out. Then, pump your ankle up and down to stretch leg muscles.

Stand at the kitchen counter and do small knee bends.
Do sit-to-stand exercises. Simply sit down then stand up.
From a standing position, go up on your toes, then down again.
March on the spot.
Do side leg raises while standing at the kitchen counter.

Balance on one leg (Do this near something you can grab onto if necessary).

Tap step. Move your right foot forward, to the side, to a position behind you, and back to the starting position. Do the same with the left foot.

Keep walking! Apartment hallways and indoor shopping malls are excellent places for walking.

When exercising, elderly people should feel a moderate sense of effort, but nothing more, Start with a few repetitions of each exercise, and build up gradually.
