Balance is primarily a function of the inner ear...but other factors contribute of course, such as vision...and being able to see a 'horizine line'.
Which is why when one's eye are closed, it is more difficult to feel balanced/centered.
One exercise that is recommended for adults is to stand on one foot with closed eyes. It is remarkably difficult. (as we age, we lose our ability to balance as we previously could) Starting out with 10 secs.on each foot...increasing the time as you are able is the goal.
Proper breathing is also key to good balance. I use to be dizzy a lot with my anxiety...and chronic hyperventilation was the issue. Be sure to practice your breathing excises!
