Tips To Spare Time For Exercise

Walk while talking on the phone:

Instead of emailing or texting your client or friend, make a phone call. Walk while you talk and take long strides. You can come to the corridor or your balcony while making a call. This will also help you give your body a break sitting all day long.

Climb stairs instead of taking the elevator:

You must have heard it several times, climb up to your office, home, or work area instead of using the elevator. Similarly, climb down. Stairs are an excellent way to exercise your legs and joints.

Join the gym or yoga class

See if you can fit in 45 minutes of Aerobics, Pilates, or any other fitness class in your busy schedule. You never know you might have a fitness class going on in your office. All you need to do is to get your exercise clothes.

Clean your house yourself

A very productive and effective way to exercise is to clean your own house. Schedule 20 to 30 minutes of cleaning every day in the morning. Scrub the bathrooms, clean the cupboards, mow the lawn, vacuum the floor, mop the floor, etc. House chores can be endless and if you plan well, your house cleaning can help you save money on costly houses helps, lose some pounds, and enjoy a clean house.

Make it a point to sleep on time and wake up early

No matter how busy you are, an early to bed and early to rise schedule is of prime importance. This will not only give you a better and productive day ahead but will also give your metabolism a boost and help you plan things more effectively. You might even have time to plan 30 minutes of exercise every day if you get up early.

Walk a kilometre home while returning from office:

Get off a stop earlier than the one close to your home or office and walk up the rest of the distance. There, you just made time for a walk every day!

A workout should be fun and not a task that you have to do every day. It can be in the form of anything that you love to do. Dancing, swimming, playing with kids on the field, running, jogging, running errands, stretching at home, or such others. All you need to do is to keep a track of distance walked every day on an app on your phone and you will be surprised to see how easily you can exercise while still working.
