How To “Sneak In” That Exercise
Exercise is essential to weight loss, health, happiness, strong bones, heart health and preventing disease, so it's time to find one that you enjoy. Don't wait any longer - get started TODAY!
It's time to find the time to exercise. It may already feel like your day is too full with so many different things, but your body can't afford to skip exercise. I suggest making a list of all of the things that fill your day, and then numbering them from highest to lowest by priority. Surely something can be cut or at least reduced so you can try and squeeze in some activity. Exercise doesn't have to mean breaking a 60 minute sweat at the gym each day. Start out with just 20 minutes a day 3 times per week, and increase from there. It can be during your lunch hour at work or early in the morning before anyone else in your household wakes up. Anything you start with is better than the absence of it, so just get your body moving!
Start by identifying what you like to do because exercise should be something you look forward to - it can be 20-30 minutes of your own time to think, listen to music, organize your thoughts. Do you like to walk, swim, dance, jog, do yoga, bike, watch videos, roller blade, ice skate, or play any sports? It can also be incorporated into things you probably already do, such as clean the house, walk up stairs, lift groceries, or walk around the mall. These are all different ways you can integrate exercise into your daily routine. Just be sure that you put good energy into these chores and do them long enough to get a cardiovascular workout, which is a minimum of 20 minutes.
