How to fit exercise into your day without knowing it

Often due to busy schedules, many people face the issue of not having enough time to exercise during the day. They wake up in the morning in a hurry to get to work, spend most of the day sitting down at their desks and then come home too tired to go to the gym or do a home workout. However, exercise is a vital part of reducing risk of cardiovascular disease, promoting positive mental health and strengthening your core muscles and bones.

Here are 5 easy ways to implement exercise into your daily routine:

  • Alter your commute – Instead of taking a train or bus to work, you could attempt to wake up slightly earlier and walk or cycle to work. If your office is too far to walk or cycle the whole route, get off a stop or two earlier! It may appear inconvenient at first but if you stick with it, you will see the benefits. Fresh air will also help prepare you for the day ahead!
  • Take the stairs – Instead of taking the lift, take the stairs. This may seem like a minor change but every little counts and it is better than doing no physical activity at all.
  • Work out at home – After work, you may be too tired to do a long session at the gym but what is stopping you from doing one from the convenience of your own home? There are plenty of 10 minute home workout videos online which require the use of little to no equipment. You could even do these with a partner to keep up the motivation.
  • Prioritise exercise on the weekends – If the weekdays are too busy to schedule exercise into your daily routine, use the weekends instead. You can schedule to play sports with friends, go for a run, go to the gym or go for a long walk around your local area.
