Easy ways to add Exercise to your daily routine:


Sunday, April 14, 2013

Easy ways to add Exercise to your daily routine:

* Going shopping? Park the car under a light at the outer edges of the Mall parking!
* Ride the bus! Then get on or off the bus several blocks away from your destination.
* If you work in an office building then take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
* During Coffee Breaks take fitness breaks! Walk, stretch or do some office exercises.
* On nice days get outside! Do some leaf raking, prune the shrubs or some other chore.
* Don't use the TV's remote. Get up when you want to change the channel.
* Exercise while watching TV. For example, use hand weights, a stationary bike or treadmill, stretch, or perform body-weight exercises such as crunches, push ups and squats.
* Keep a pair of comfortable walking or running shoes in your car and office. You'll be ready for activity wherever you go!
* Walk while doing errands.

Exercise Extra: Regular exercise lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol, and prevents Type II diabetes.

    Very true. 'Incidental exercise' (i.e. just exercise you do in your normal every day activities, rather than going to the gym or 'planned' exercise) is so important. Thanks for the blog

    Always think of new ways to move. I do squats when I'm on the phone at work. Or toe raises when brushign my teeth.

    Do your own housecleaning. It's quite the workout, which is why most people avoid it.
