The most important thing about any diet or weight loss exercise routine is, your ability to stick with it over an extended period of time. If you like the activities that you are doing, or the food that you are eating, you’re more likely to be able to stick with it. This is great for your health, physique, and overall well-being. Experts recommend that you stay active for an hour a day in order to stay healthy. The great news is you don’t need to do it all at once – just find a way to keep moving all day.
Exercise tip #1: Spend some time thinking about what you like to do.
What do you like to do? What do you consider “play”, and how can you incorporate movement into it? Do you like to be alone or with friends? These are three questions that might help you pin-point where you might want to go.
Exercise tip #2: Pick a fun way to exercise based upon what you like.
Do you like music or dancing? Join a dance class – anything that keeps you moving for 30 to 60 minutes a day is awesome. Even as silly as it may feel, dance around the house or with your partner. Be silly, fun time does everyone some good.
Do you like cleaning? Doing the dishes (rather than using the dishwasher), folding and putting laundry away, sweeping and/or dusting can make a dent if it becomes part of your everyday routine.
Do you like shopping? Park your car farther away from the store or mall. 15 min of light walking (in comfortable shoes of course) can burn nearly 50 calories.
Do you like being outside? Play with your kids and/or pets - 15minutes a day would be good for all of you. A walk would also be a beneficial alternative. Mow your lawn or do yard work.Believe it or not, 10 minutes of mowing (push) burns over 50 calories. There are numbers of other outdoor hobbies, such as gardening/weeding, which can achieve the same results.
Exercise tip #3: Put more movement in your everyday routine.
Take the stairs, even walking down stairs burns calories. You can burn 50 calories if you can find a way to use the stairs for 10 minutes.
Get out of your desk chair. Take the scenic route to the copier, restroom, your assistant’s desk or coffee machine. Don’t stay idle at your desk all day
Exercise tip #4: Make a promise to yourself.
Try something for at least 3 times before giving up. Experts agree that it takes this long before you really know if you like it or not. If you’re first choice isn’t for you, try again. The key is not to give up.
