Sneaky Movement

I often hear people say they do not have time for exercise. Quality of life improves when we exercise so I can suggest a few ways to fit more activity into our busy schedules.

Take the stairs, skip the elevator.

Park farther away from your destination; force yourself to walk.

Ride your bike to work or to do errands; you don’t always have to drive!

Play with your children; don’t simply watch them play, join in.

Use a convertible standing desk at work (or home); standing uses more muscles than sitting.

Clean the house; housework is productive and can be great exercise.

Take frequent walking breaks; set your watch or phone to alert you every 30-60 minutes to take a short walk or do a few squats.

There you have it. No excuses, get moving!
