We all have busy lives with work and family life to balance. In these busy daily routines we forget about health and fitness. They probably come last in the priority list. The reason is that you do not have time to go to the gym or for a jog or a walk.
If this sound true and rings a bell then it is time to think about how best we can incorporate some basic exercises into daily routine. Let us begin with morning. You are rushing for the office and have no time for exercise. Correct but you can prove it to be wrong by simply think about ways by which you can shun your car and reach your office. If you drive to next train station to catch a train the make sure that you either bike or walk to the train station. If you do not have that option then the next best thing to do is to park the car at the very end of the parking lot as that will give you enough walking.
Water should be your constant companion and you should drink as much water as you can during your day. Never skip breakfast as that will help curb your hunger later.
Take stairs instead of lifts in your apartment building and at your office. Initially it will be tough but then it will become a habit. In the office make sure that you get up every half an hour and stretch for five minutes or at least walk to farthest kitchen area in the office for getting coffee or tea. Good eating habits are also essential to remain fit. Shun the junk food and try to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet. A good diet plan and a nutrition chart will help you stay on track.
In the evening when you watch television you should be on the treadmill instead of the sofa. That way you get entertainment and exercise. If you have kids then make sure that you go out and play with them instead of playing computer games. Nowadays the in thing for getting fitness is also a game called Wii which combines games and fitness.
Make sure that you do ten minutes of manual work around the house. That manual work could be fixing up something or even mopping the floor. That will give you a lot exercise plus as a bonus keep your wife happy and the house clean.
Exercise combined with healthy eating habits is what fitness is all about. There is no time to waste and the sooner you start the better it is for your health.
