WAYS TO KEEP ACTIVE BY
INCLUDING EXERCISE IN
YOUR DAILY ROUTINE
Despite this, exercise can be hard to maintain if the activities you are doing are not enjoyable. For example, I am not fond of running, but I occasionally go on a run and enjoy the aftermath of feeling that I’ve tried something challenging. If the only activity I chose to do was runing, I wouldn’t be very active at all!
With this in mind, here’s a few suggestions on ways to keep active by including light,moderate or high intensity exercises into your daily routine:
Other tasks requiring lifting normal household items and boxes require physical strength and thus you can be exercising and helping your joints and muscles to maintain fluidity. I recommend that you try to make the most of tasks which require strength and stability.
If you are aiming to burn fat, gain muscle or generally tone up your body, this really is an effective means of doing so.
Exercise shared really can be exercise halved, because you’re both supporting one another to keep motivated to finish the workout. It’s also a great way to build your friendships and reward each other.
If you don’t make it to the gym four times this week, perhaps you can reassess whether you need four visits. Instead, organise one or two workouts at home per week, for example.
