How many times have you made up an excuse not to exercise? – You’re too exhausted today. You finished work late. You have to be up super early in the morning. Oh, and you got a papercut on your pinky so you definitely can’t workout today! – Does any of that ring a bell?
Well, there’s no more excuses. Here are the top 3 ways that you can squeeze in a workout without even having to leave the house!
If you’re someone that tends to let the stresses of work and everyday life affect you, then you should try your hand at yoga. Known for its calming abilities, it may become an important part of your daily life. Before you do anything though, you will need to make sure you have an appropriate environment to work in. – If you have kids, then try scheduling in a session when they’re still at school, or when they’re in bed. You want somewhere that you cannot be distracted.
It’s a good idea to get a quality yoga mat so you’re comfortable. Then you can easily find a ‘how-to’ video on youtube to copy until you put together your own routine.
Consider dimming the lights, lighting a few candles and playing some relaxing music to create the perfect vibe. Then you can look forward to getting fit, strong, flexible and content.
Whether you don’t like the outdoors or you just prefer to stay in front of the tv watching your favorite series – you can now do that while getting fit. If you have a bike stuffed away in your garage, it’s time to bring it out, wipe away the cobwebs and go for a ride, without actually having to go anywhere. All you need are some bike rollers. These will attach to your bike from the wheels, so you can pedal as much as you would like, and you won’t be moving forward. As well as all the benefits cycling has on your body like burning calories while also being very easy on the joints – you will also be improving your balance because of the mechanism you will be using.
There are so many different types of aerobics that you can do, and all you need is a solid thirty minutes everyday to keep you fit and see results, so you should easily be able to find some time to do that. Aerobic workouts are designed to pump oxygenated blood from the heart, to give that oxygen to your muscles. So essentially you’re not only getting active, but your body is doing something that’s very necessary to stay healthy.
An excellent example of an aerobic exercise is dancing! Who doesn’t love to dance? There are no restrictions or rules to follow; you can just put your favorite music on, let go, and be totally free for however long you want to be. As long as your heart rate is up – you won’t be feeling down, thanks to the endorphins that your brain will be releasing. So what better excuse to get up and have a boogie?
