Where do your feet go when you walk?  Do you take each step far out to the side, or in a tight line, one in front of the other?  Both of these walking styles make keeping your balance more difficult.  The more energy you spend trying to keep your balance, the less walking you can do.  Practice walking with your feet right under your body in a neutral pattern, and you’ll see your energy grow in leaps and bounds.
