We will admit it, exercising vigorously every single day can be a very taxing task and very few people are able to work out religiously every day. For those of us who really despise the entire routine of waking up early and increasing the level of physical activity we do in a day, we can be easily intimidated by people who already have everything carefully planned such as a proper gym wear and a proper gym routine. It takes a lot of effort to be organized and determined to exercise every single day.
Of course, we can’t deny the many benefits of working out and exercising every day; to begin with it helps you stay in shape and be fit. Whether your motive is to lose weight or it is to simply lead a healthy lifestyle then exercising regularly is your key. Staying active will also help you stay positive and generally in a happy mood; every time you exercise a group of happy chemicals such as endorphins and serotonin are released into your body that make you feel happier. When you exercise you also get to clear your head off any anxieties or stress that you might be experiencing. Experts and doctors actually recommend regular exercise to their patients because when you feel anxiety or depression then a chemical called cortisol is released in your body that settles in your stomach and starts to store fat. When you exercise you counter this effect because not only will you feel more content but all that movement will allow you to lose that built up fat in your abdomen!
As far as physical health is concerned, exercising will allow you a better and more efficient circulation of blood throughout your body which will automatically rejuvenate your muscles, help you feel much fresher and also defog your mind and help you think better. Continuous exercise also helps with improving your back and posture so when your posture will improve then your organs will also start to come back to their true positions which will improve your digestive system and your nervous system.
If you want healthy skin and if you want to feel fresher then we suggest seriously considering incorporating exercise in your everyday lives; it will help you immensely. But the issue remains the same; how can you add physical activity in your life especially if you’re super busy? Well, we might have some suggestions!
Walk to Work
One of the best pieces of advice that we seriously abide by is walking to work; and the reasons are quite simple, you will need to go to work every day and if you ditch your car that means you will be exercising every day whether you can find the time for it or not. Secondly walking will mean saving so much money and time you will otherwise spend on parking and diesel!
If your workplace is ridiculously far away then we suggest taking up the habit of cycling to work every day! That could work too right? Again you will be saving money on parking and on diesel, not to forget the fresh air and sunlight you will be absorbing!
Work out with your Baby
We know a lot of mothers who struggle to work out because they are so incredibly busy with their kids! Well, there are many ways in which you can work out with your kids to make it fun and also effective! Babies can be used as weights instead of dumbbells and barbells to help you do bicep curls and lunges! So, to all the parents out there, grab your kids and do lunges as you move from one room to another!
Carry your Groceries
Try to make your life as health effective as possible; you can make considerable changes by doing just the bare minimal! If you are in the habit of carrying your groceries in a trolley then skip that and go for a basket instead! Even if it means you will have to carry two baskets, then choose that option. Keep your back straight, regulate your breathing and feel the weight of the baskets as you fill them up one by one! Trust us this will be a huge improvement for you and a great way of working on those biceps!
Take the Stairs
Machines like elevators and escalators have made our lives considerably easy but they also have made it unnecessarily convenient as well. We suggest ditching the elevators and escalators and just taking the stairs whenever you can, it will help you build your stamina, will be an excellent way of doing cardio and you will get to work on your leg muscles!
Start Doing Chores
Doing chores is another excellent way of losing unwanted weight and getting a good workout done but with a few modifications no doubt! For example, when you are wiping the floor or vacuuming then we would suggest opting for a broom instead and instead of standing and bending down to clean the floor, we suggest sitting in a frog position so you are closer to the ground and then cleaning. This way not only will you protect yourself against back pain, get a killer leg workout done but also this way you will be able to clean more efficiently!
If you follow these tips then soon you will become one of those well-organized people who have an entire collection of workout clothes with jogger pants and exercise hoodies who don’t need to make special time to work out! They incorporate it in their everyday lives!
