6 Ways To Incorporate More Activity Into Your Day

by Paisley Hansen | 21-01-2022 07:02 recommendations 0

Most people spend a large amount of their day sitting down. Whether it's commuting to work, stationed at a desk, eating or settling in for the evening, people aren't as active as they should be. A sedentary lifestyle increases your risk of diabetes, obesity and all sorts of maladies, so it makes sense to get moving. If you insist you have no time for exercise there's still ways to sneak in fitness. Here are six ways to incorporate more activity into your everyday routine.

1. Start Walking

Walking is one of the best ways to stay active and you can start right now. Walking is a terrific exercise for any age and fitness level. Even if you don't have a lot of free time, there are many ways to add walking to your day. For example, stop fighting for good parking spots and park further away. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you have an important call to make, do it outside. You'll get fit while you talk and have more privacy.

2. Stand More at Work

If you have a desk job, do you worry about sitting all day? Instead of waiting for your break to get up, invest in a standing desk. You'll be able to move around while you type or take calls and you won't be hunched up in a chair. For a little extra pep for a day spent on your feet, add a nutritional supplement such as Thrive. What is Thrive, you may ask? It's a convenient program that adds vitamins and energy to your day. 

3. Have Fun Cleaning

Cleaning is one of those activities you can't get out of, so why not transform it into an exercise opportunity? Throw on some headphones and catch up on the latest tunes. Having something upbeat to listen to takes the boredom out of vacuuming, mopping and dusting. Dancing while you do the dishes makes that chore a lot more fun and gives you something to look forward to. Not only will your house look fantastic, but you'll feel pretty good yourself.

4. Find an Online Workout

If you want to get active right this second, go online and look for a workout. The exercise world is right at your fingertips and you can find everything from a walking workout to yoga and weightlifting with just the press of a button. There's no driving to the gym, no membership fee, just the workout of your choice in the privacy of your own home. Many more people than you'd expect work out at home with online videos or DVDs. Workouts can be as short as ten minutes or as long as an hour or more.

5. Take Up Gardening

Gardening is a wonderful hobby practiced by millions of people, but did you know it's great exercise, too? When you're engaged in gardening, you're walking, stretching, reaching and lifting for sometimes hours at a time. It's a wonderful workout for your arms, legs, glutes and your torso. As a bonus, you're outside in the fresh air and sunshine which is good for your mental health and as a source of vitamin D.

6. Go Act Like a Kid

One of the best role models for daily activity is children! No matter what time of day it is, kids are on the go non-stop. Why not take a lesson from them and channel your inner child? If you've already got kids, get down on the floor and play with them! Show little ones how to build an old-fashioned blanket fort. If they're older, take them biking or skating. Think of something you loved doing as a kid and then go do it. Your kids will wonder what's gotten into you and you have a blast. 

If you need to add more movement to your life, start right now. By walking whenever possible, doing quick internet workouts and spicing up your cleaning routine, you'll give yourself the gift of a healthier lifestyle.
