When you choose an active lifestyle, you don’t need a crazy goal like running a marathon or climbing a mountain. Being active is about convenient and simple changes, like walking to the other side of the office instead of sending an email, or getting off the bus a stop or two early. So the next time you feel overwhelmed by your fitness goals, remember these three easy tips to fit more activity into your day.
Fit it in – During your lunch break, take 10 or 15 minutes and walk around the block. Fresh air will clear your mind and get your blood circulating.
Be creative – You don’t need gym equipment when you’ve got stairs. Next time you see an elevator, use it as motivation to a few flights of steps instead. Another idea? Park your car a little farther away from work.
Make it routine – Force yourself to get active at the same time. A daily walk is a great habit to get into. After just a few weeks, your body will start to remind you without a second thought. Routine is one of your best weapons towards fighting for a better you.
Remember, getting fit should feel good, and can even be fun. Pop some headphones in an listen to your favorite tunes while out on a walk, it’s a great way to relax.
