4 Quick Fixes When You Have No Time to Exercise

 

Carving out time for a trip to the gym might be impossible, but find 10 minute increments to squeeze in exercise at home. Try any of the 10-Minute Solution fitness videos for a quick, but effective workout. Or make time by spending part of your lunch break on a walk; just make sure to keep the pace high.

Make exercise part of your lifestyle.

Back in the older days, people didn’t generally schedule out blocks of time dedicated solely to fitness. Why? Because most of them lived physically demanding lives. Even though you’re not out there spending the day on the farm, you can make an effort to add more physical exercise to your everyday activities. Some of these are obvious, but always good advice: take the stairs, park farther away, skip driving altogether when you could walk, carry one grocery bag at a time, teach and play a sport with your kids, take the pup for an extra walk, and so on.

Be extra diligent with your diet.

Exercise is essential for a healthy body, and extra calorie burning. So, on those days when you don’t have a minute to spare for a proper workout, make sure you’re extra diligent about calorie counting to maintain your weight goals. On average, a 30-minute workout burns 250-300 calories, so on non-exercise days, cut back your calorie intake just a little extra by focusing on fruits, veggies, and filling lean proteins all day.Be extra diligent with your diet.

Stand as often as you can.

Would you like to burn calories all day long without breaking a sweat? All you need to do is stand up. You’ll engage many more muscles and burn nearly twice as many calories as sitting. We’ve discussed the “sitting disease” before and even if you exercise regularly, sitting for too many hours a day leads to greater diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and obesity risk. Try using a standing desk, or even chair marching instead if you work at an office. These are simple switches, but will make a lasting difference in the long run.
