Many people are overwhelmed by the idea of adding regular exercise to their daily routine. Fortunately, it is not as difficult as you think to add exercise into your daily life here are a few suggestions that will make it easier for you to exercise and reap the long-term benefits.
• When you’re running your daily errands, park your car as far as you can from the store that you’re going to-adding more steps to your day.
• If you live in a bike friendly town and enjoy biking, set a no driving area and ride your bike whenever running errands within that no driving area. Not only will you reap the benefits of getting fit, you will also save money on gas. Obviously, if you decide to ride and run your errands do it on a day when you’re not in a hurry.
• Exercise at home with streaming classes. There are online services that allow people to exercise from the comfort of their home. Again, consult a doctor before beginning a new fitness routine!
• If you don’t have the option for online streaming you can also rent videos from your local library and work out earlier or later in your day.
• Do a 10-minute high intensity interval training routine first thing in the morning or at night.
