Any fitness-guru or expert will tell you the key to staying healthy is to exercise. For some people that have not “exercised” in a long time, speaking years, this can be a scary and overwhelming thought. I’m here to tell you that all you have to do is get up off the couch (or chair), go outside and go for a walk!! Heck, even just getting up out of your sit every 2 hours will improve your Physical abilities! Everyone has to start somewhere.
Of course , if you do have goals of losing weight, you will need to pick up your pace while walking and then turn it into a jog and then run in the long haul.
Going for a walk can be a fun activity, If you are married grab your spouse and make it romantic. Instead of sitting on the couch stuffing your faces with high-calorie snacks, go for a brisk walk around your neighborhood. Have kids? take the kids for a stroll with you. Are you flying solo? Call up a friend and go for a walk in the park or in either of your neighborhoods.
“Not having time” is one of the biggest excuses in the book. Everyone has a least 30 minutes to do something active. You can even split it up if you are really pressed for time. Instead of driving to that fast-food restaurant on your lunch break, walk there. You might even discover a new hidden gem along the way that is a better find than the original place you were going to go to. If you live close enough to work, try biking on a nice sunny day instead driving to work. It will be better for your health than getting angry in traffic.
These are just some ways to keep moving throughout the day. Remember to just move!
