Fitting Exercise into a Busy Schedule
Fitting Exercise into a Busy Schedule – Part 1
Everyone has a busy schedule these days which can make finding time to exercise a challenge. The goal would be to find time to work on flexibility, cardiovascular, and strength during the course of a week. Letâ€™s focus first on finding time to fit in cardiovascular exercise.
Aerobic exercise includes walking, jogging, and any other continuous exercise. It does not always need to be structured such as walking on a treadmill or riding the exercise bike. Walking to and from the bus stop or parking far away from the office all can be included as ways of fitting in exercise. It can be beneficial to build in exercise while running errands or completing other tasks this method saves time and it is more likely to happen.
Other ways to fit fitness in may include shorter bouts of exercise rather than trying to find time to take a block of one hour. Research has found that exercising for 10 minutes a day has many of the same health benefits as exercising for 30 minutes a day three days a week.
If you hate exercise or the gym there are other ways to get exercise that donâ€™t involve gym equipment. Household chores, gardening, washing the car, mowing the lawn, and painting are all other ways to be active. Be creative and choose activities you enjoy most. Just remember to keep moving.
