You know how it goes: “You should walk at least 30 to 45 minutes, three times a week”. Let’s be honest… The first thing is to put aside any complaints. Let’s walk around the issue, or better yet, the block!
The list of things to do during your day can seem endless. You swear you can’t spare a minute to exercise. But what about this list: heart disease, osteoporosis, strokes, obesity, diabetes, and arthritis. These are all conditions that can be caused by physical inactivity.
While you tie the shoelaces on your sneakers, think of all the benefits you will get. This walk time you are about to embark upon will help strengthen your bones, lower your blood pressure, and make your heart and lungs more efficient. Excess calories and stress will also fall by the wayside.
But what if the gym or parks aren’t really your thing?
Choose how you want to move
If you do not have the time or willingness for tennis or structured walks, it’s not a problem. There are many ways to keep moving.
Turn up the volume!
It doesn’t matter if you like reggaeton, rock, or ballads; put the music you like and dance passionately. Do a few songs a day. Your body and mind will thank you.
Turn the car off!
Always keep your umbrella handy because, from now on, you’re going to park as far away as possible. It doesn’t matter if you go to the mall, the office or the supermarket: the purpose is to move as much as possible.
Make up reasons and add steps. Twenty additional minutes of walking a day can make 7 pounds of body fat disappear per year.
Shake the dust!
Housecleaning is a demanding job. Cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms, the living room and kitchen is exhausting, but you can see it as vigorous exercise. This will give you greater benefits without affecting your important agenda. Do you have a yard? Enjoy the extra cardio…
