Regular exercise is vital for your overall health.
Refraining from doing so can lead to a bank of physical health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure.
Additionally, lacking of exercise can cause depression too which makes exercising vital also to your mental health.
But, you don’t have to be a gym hero to get enough physical activity to improve your health.
There are a lot of ways to make regular activity part of your life.
Now, if you really hate exercise or simply don’t have time to do it, try these few movements to get your body back to a healthy state.
Walking counts as an exercise.
Something as simple as walking can actually help build muscle and cardiovascular endurance, reduce fat, and strengthen your bones.
Regular walking also increases your heart rate, which ensures better blood circulation and a decrease in future risk of stroke or heart disease.
Walking can be done anywhere at any time of the day.
Instead of forcing yourself to do something you don’t enjoy, find ways to exercise that fit your personality.
If you’re a social person, do something that engages you socially – take a group dance class.
Or maybe just dance for 30-minutes with your family.
Dancing is a whole-body workout that’s actually fun.
It’s good for your heart, it makes you stronger, and it can help with balance and coordination.
A 30-minute dance burns between 130 and 250 calories, about the same as jogging.
Swimming is a great workout because you need to move your whole body against the resistance of the water.
It burns calories and can help a person to lose weight, as well as tone muscles and improve overall health and fitness.
Play your favorite sport or simply play backyard games like tag, hopscotch, and capture the flag, jumping rope and hide and seek with your family and friends.
You don’t just burn calories, you get to bond with your loved ones too.
Yoga doesn’t even feel like exercise at all.
It’s more like stretching and mental focusing.
Yoga poses stretch your muscles and increase your range of motion.
It burns calories and tone muscles and sometimes accompanied by breathing exercises and often ending with meditation, making it a total mind-body workout.
Daily chores like cleaning your house, mowing the lawn, cleaning the car, shopping for food and other things are all examples of moderate exercise which helps improve health and fitness.
Any type of movement leads to additional calories burned, so absolutely, housework is considered exercise.
There are plenty of ways you can exercise without necessarily working out, so do yourself a favor by strengthening your body, mind, and soul.
