How You Can Slip Exercise into Your Everyday Routines

Many people say that they simply don't have the time to exercise. While this may be perfectly true in a fast paced world, there are certain things you can do to incorporate exercise into your daily life without allotting much time for it.

When it comes to exercise, it all starts with a good attitude and a little bit of action each day. It's a common misconception to believe that you need to engage in strict dieting or lengthy and vigorous exercise routines in order to stay in shape. It simply isn't true!
 
Try some of these tips in order to slip exercise into your daily routine:
 
1.    Take the Stairs. No matter where you are, there are many times when you can opt to take the stairs instead of an elevator. Whether you're attending an important business meeting, or just going to the mall, take the stairs.
 
2.    Go for a Walk. Walking is a great way to get extra exercise and most of the time it doesn't feel like exercise at all. If you were planning to meet with a friend, ask them if they'd like to go for a walk while you talk. Alternatively, you can go for walk when you just need to sort some of your thoughts. Besides, getting some extra blood to the brain will actually help you think clearer.
 
3.    Play with Your Children. If you have children, it's likely that you have at least a part of your day dedicated to their care. Decide that you're going to engage in active games like outdoor sports. You can even do this with pets too. It'll be a fun and relaxing source of exercise!
 
4.    Jog in Place. Jogging in place might seem like a boring activity, but when you combine it with something else that you're doing, it can be quite invigorating. There are bound to be short bursts of time that you can use to relieve tension and get the blood pumping.
 
5.    Ride Your Bike. If you're traveling a short distance, it's a good idea to take your bike, instead of the car or bus. While it may add some time to your overall travel time, it's a great way to stay in shape if you can spare a few extra minutes.
 
6.    Active Dates. Whether you'd like to schedule a date with a partner, friend, or family member, you can definitely choose an activity with exercise. Instead of going to a movie, go dancing. You could even try something like rock climbing or attending the batting cages. Get creative and have a blast!
 
7.    Lift Weights. You can multitask while lifting weights as well. Lift while you're brainstorming, watching TV, or talking on the phone. You may also want to keep the weights at your desk as a reminder to use them.
 
8.    Park Far Away. You don't need the stress of fighting for the closest parking spot. Instead, travel a little further and walk! There's little stress involved with this decision and it'll probably save you some time, too.
 
9.    Try Outdoor Chores. If you don't already participate in outdoor chores, you could be helping your house and yourself by engaging in them. You might even be saving your family some money if you've previously hired the neighbor's kids. Mow your lawn, do some weeding, or take up gardening - it's a simple way to stay fit!
 
Keep Moving
 
It doesn't take long to realize that, with the proper attitude, you can still remain active while you're busy with other things. Sometimes you may end up taking a little extra time to do routine tasks, but your body will thank you for it.
 
Just take these simple, small actions each day and you'll soon reap the rewards!

The first physical change that Kaizen Challenge has made to me is starting my day off the same way – with reading and silence. This has given me the clarity of mind, each day, to see what issues are troubling me and what I need to do to sort out those issues. I find I am now able to look at the “bigger picture” each day Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-10-16 Find more money every month! Most information that comes our way is advertising, direct or indirect. This is true in the schoolroom and the lecture hall. It’s true in the doctor’s rooms and over coffee with your financial consultant. But it’s ruinously expensive in the long run. Even if your consultant picks up the bill for the coffee! Relying on information that comes to us, keeps us in debt It keeps us in poor health. It keeps us tied to... Read more...

This however is clearly shattered with numerous small examples of the visualization to realization process which confirms the process in hard “personal” evidence.

Wealth Insight 2009-11-20 I Divide Internet Entrepreneurs Into Three Groups. 1. The average entrepreneur This entrepreneur does not have a good chance of success because of three things – A scarcity mindset (the belief that there is not enough to go around). This is the opposite of an abundance mentality. Dependence on the ‘experts’. Webmasters, gurus, financial consultants.

Wealth Insight 2009-07-10 Why is it so hard to keep it simple? In my experience, everything worth knowing in life is simple. Why then do our teachers and the media make it so complicated? I think there are several reasons: desire to keep valuable knowledge to yourself an agenda to mislead others so that you can profit In my opinion, these stem from fear of scarcity (the myth that there is not enough to go around). But perhaps the greatest reason of them all is ignorance Which comes... Read more...
