Most of us would enjoy being fitter but very few of us have the time and energy that it would take to put in the exercise necessary to do so. Fortunately, there are many different ways that you can fit in some effortless exercise that will help you to be able to get fit, and lose some weight too if that is what you are attempting to do. Here are four different ways that you can do this. Just adding these four simple things into your present life without you ever realizing what you are achieving.
Parking your car
Instead of parking your car as close as possible to work or to the store, you should park some distance further away than the usual parking lot. This means that to get to work or to the store you will have to walk instead. Those few minutes that you are going to spend walking to the store or to the office and back to your car again are going to add up to a lot of exercise over time.
Clean Your House
Housecleaning is one of the best exercises that you can do for several different reasons. First of all, it is physical activity that we need to do and cannot be put off for too long. Secondly, if you live in a clean house that will make you feel more comfortable and less stressed. This reduced stress will go a long way to help you with those fitness goals we are trying to achieve.
Enjoy Your Children
Your children sure are bundles of energy and you can use your interactions with them as a great source of exercise for you. Take them to the park on a regular basis and be active with them in as many ways as possible. Through these activities not only will you enjoy some exercise but your family bond will be strengthened as a result of that increased togetherness.
Don’t Use the Phone
At work, instead of picking up the phone and calling somebody that is on the other side of the office, get up from your desk and walk over there to talk to them. It may seem small but this little bit of activity will add up over the weeks to a considerable amount of physical activity.
