Everyone knows that exercising is really good for you. It improves your vitality, boosts your health, and leaves you feeling really re-energized and de-stressed. Everyone also knows though that finding time to exercise is one of the biggest challenges we face, as we try to juggle everything we need to do in a day.
It really is difficult to find time to go to the gym. Who actually has an extra 2 hours a day to exercise when you don’t even have time to get through your daily tasks? Sometimes exercise can seem like a real schlep, mostly because it just doesn’t fit into your schedule comfortably.
Most health experts advise you to exercise at least 30 minutes a day to stay fit and healthy. Okay, so 30 minutes isn’t so much, but that still doesn’t make it easier to find 30 minutes! The good news is that research has shown us that if you only exercise for 10 minutes 3 times a day it is just as effective as 30 minutes consecutively! Did you know that? Think about a cash tin — if you keep putting coins in, by the end of the day, it all sums up. That is the same as exercising throughout the day.
Now that you know you don’t need to find 30 minutes consecutively, but rather 10 minute intervals, what do you do, and how can you incorporate this into your current lifestyle easily? This is where you need to start getting creative. Quit those weight loss plans, pills, and diets and try a different, much easier approach to feeling energized and more productive.
Are you ready to change the way you think about exercise and unleash your imagination and creativity? The point is, you don’t need to be in a gym with all the best equipment to build your muscles and tighten your tummy – it is the movement that counts, not the machinery!
Here are some really simple but powerful exercises you can do – FROM ANYWHERE!
So you have arrived home and the last thing on your mind is going to the gym, but you are still desperate to get a little exercise in. Do these exercises to tone and strengthen your whole body from the comfort of your home.
Remember – don’t use the lift! Never pass up the opportunity to exercise with a flight of stairs, whether at home, in the office, or even in the subway.
Sound simple? Of course it is! Getting better results doesn’t need to be so complicated — sometimes it is the smallest changes and effects that yield the biggest results. Stay motivated, keep your imagination open, and remember, if anything has a weight, it can be lifted!
Challenge yourself every day to creatively fit in 30 minutes of exercise with minimal effort on your part. If you want to have more energy and boost your productivity, you must fit in some form of exercise daily. Not having time to go to the gym is no longer an excuse!
