Too busy to exercise? If you are time poor and can’t manage 30 minutes of exercise x 5 times per week, then you need to think creatively. We all have the same number of hours in a day.
Did you know there are 168 hours in a week, 10,080 minutes and all you need to do is 150 minutes per week.
Broken down it doesn’t seem that hard does it?
Below I’ve listed some obvious and easy ways to incorporate exercise into your busy life.
Here are 5 ways you can exercise creatively when time poor
1. Break Up Your 30 minutes
Try breaking up your exercise into smaller amounts. For example 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon. Or why not try 10 minutes in the morning, a walk at lunchtime for 10 minutes and 1o minutes in the afternoon.
2. Take the Stairs
Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator when you can.
3. Select Your Parking Spot
Try parking further away from the entrance to the shopping centre. You will get some walking in which will add to your 10,000 steps which are recommended daily.
4. Leave the office at lunchtime
Try to get out for a walk at lunchtime. Even if it is only 10 – 15 minutes you will be exercising and also refreshing your mind which will help your afternoon work performance.
5. Do Housework
Put on some music and get stuck into some housework. This counts as exercise, you will be moving and also have a beautifully clean home as well.
You can see that if you think outside the box you can become creative with your exercise when pushed for time.
