7 fitness tips for busy people
Increase your incidental activity
This is the amount of activity you do in your normal course of your day, the activity not generally classed as exercise. You could walk to work, take the stairs instead of the lift, or play with the kids for 15 minutes per day.
Start a lunchtime walking group
Talk your workmates into heading outside as a lunchtime walking group. Regular walking aids cardio vascular health, bone density, better sleep, weight loss, stress and mood management. Fresh air and activity is a good way to leave the hustle and bustle behind.
Ride a bike to work
Pop on your stylish plastic helmet and ride a bike instead of driving if you have the option. Good for you, good for the environment!
Sit on an Exercise Ball
Instead of having a traditional chair, you can use an exercise ball. Find one which is big enough to reach your desk and you will be forced to engage your core in order to sit up. Over the course of the day, this improves your fitness level as well as your posture.
Walk fast during the day
If you walk, walk fast for fitness improvement. Whenever you have to walk somewhere during your day, it’s a good idea to pick up the pace. Look for times when you walk as times you can sprint to the meeting or the appointment you have.
Exercise with your kids
Spend activity time with the family as you all get healthy together. Chasing a ball and running around is great fun. And follow it up with a fresh fruit smoothie made with Eat Me whey protein, yum!
Spend the time with your best friend
Take your dog for a walk. Dogs are always keen to get going, and it will help to keep them healthy as well!
