We all know that regular physical exercise is crucial to our health. But it can be a
challenge to fit a regular exercise program into your daily schedule. These tips should
enable you to make time for regular exercise that fits in with your lifestyle.
Regular Exercise for Busy Moms
Finding the time and energy for regular exercise when you have small children can be
challenging. Try out these ideas:
If possible, walk your child to school. Even if you live quite a distance from school,
you could consider parking a short distance from the school and walking your child
from there. That way your child also gets used to regular physical exercise, so you
grow fit and healthy together.
Children love to play with other children. So find out if there is a crèche at a nearby
gym, and leave your child to have fun while you work out.
Your regular physical exercise program doesn’t have to involve long sessions in the
gym. A visit to the swimming pool or the local park will give you both plenty of
exercise, plus you’ll have fun.
Regular Physical Exercise for Office Workers
If you’re sitting at a desk all day, regular physical exercise is essential if you want to
avoid piling on the pounds. But long working hours and commutes can make it difficult
to fit in a regular exercise program.
If you’re short on time when you finish work, take a walk at lunchtime. Also, if you
don’t live too far away, consider walking or cycling to work.
And think carefully about how you spend your leisure time. When you’ve finished
work, you may be so tired that you can’t bring yourself to even think about getting
regular physical exercise. But chances are, once you begin a fitness program, you will
realize that regular exercise makes you feel a lot more alert and energetic than an
evening slumped in front of the TV.
Exercise for Home Workers
If you work from home, chances are you won’t want to waste your time making regular
trips to the gym to get some exercise. But you can easily fit exercise into your daily
program without venturing far from home.
Take a break from work and have a short walk. Or if it’s too cold and walking doesn’t
appeal, consider a home fitness DVD. If you don’t feel like doing anything too
strenuous in the middle of your working day, a yoga DVD may be a great choice for
you. And 20 minutes spent exercising should be easy to fit into your working day. Plus
you have the convenience of a shower to use once you’re done.
Whatever your lifestyle, fitting regular physical exercise into your schedule is essential
to your health and well-being.
