am overweight I am too busy to exercise. What do I do?
However busy one may be, there's always time to
make little contributions to health, here and there.
These are the methods one can resort to:
|Park your vehicle at the farthest parking
lot. This way, you will have to walk a little longer for
your vehicle in the morning as well as in the evening, whether
you want it or not.
|If you travel by bus, get off one stop
earlier, and walk to your workplace. This will not only
help you keep in shape, you shall also explore new areas in
your locality which you previously saw through the bus window.
It helps to know about the area in which you work and live.
|Make morning (or evening) walk part of
your daily routine. You can bind a daily activity with it
(e.g. taking your dog to walk, going to the magazine store to
buy the newspaper yourself etc.)
|Use stairs instead of lift whenever
possible. It's not only fun, it's good for your heart, your
leg muscles and veins, your lungs, and also helps in expending
those extra calories. Getting up the stairs is tougher (and
burns more calories) than getting down the stairs.
|For short distances, walk instead of drive.
Walking is fun! You meet new people while you're walking in
the street. For medium distances, using a bicycle can be fun
|Spare a few moments playing with your kids.
Spending time with your family will help in strengthening the
bonds that tie you from them. They are the people you work for
all day! Nothing can better it when you spend some time with
them, playing and enjoying! Not only it will help in winning
their trust and love, it will also boost everybody's health.
|Do your household chores yourself.
If you have a servant, consider doing your chores yourself.
That'll spend some extra calories, and give you the pleasure
of doing-it-yourself! Afterall, when your neighbor praises your
lovely garden, you can only swell with pride to say "I
did it myself!"
|Be active at weekends. An unplanned
weekend can wreak havoc with your slimming plans! Instead of
idling away watching TV at weekends, consider joining a health
club, tennis academy, football game etc.
These little activities will add up to a bigger
health bonus, daily!
