8 Easy Ways To Be More Active When You're Busy
You're busy right? We get it.
Sometimes there's not enough time in the day for all of the things you want to do so we've put together 8 easy ways to be more active throughout your day.
They're so easy, you won't even think twice about incorporating them into your daily routine.
1. Grab the lead and walk your dog
Your body — and your pooch — will thank you! Don't have a dog? Download BorrowMyDoggy or see number 2 👇😉
2. Take your children, housemate or your partner for a walk
It’s an excellent way to get some face time without screen time. Explore the neighbourhood and you can even play some fun games like 'Eye Spy'.
3. Walk and talk
Even if you’re glued to your phone for work calls, you don’t have to be glued to your chair. Make it a habit to talk and walk. If you're back in the office, you could suggest a 'walking meeting' to your colleagues.
4. Put on some tunes
Power your cleaning session with your favourite Spotify playlist or podcast, you'll clock up steps in no time! Double points for singing, dancing AND hoovering.
5. Tune into fitness
Retrain your inner couch potato. Walk or jog in place, do yoga or lift weights, or walk on the treadmill at the gym while you watch your must-see TV shows.
6. Ditch the wheels
Spare yourself the parking stress and log some more active time by parking farther away (or even leaving the car at home) and walking or biking to your destination. Catch the bus or the tube to work? Get off a stop earlier and walk further in. Keep an umbrella in your bag for this!
7. Take the stairs
That lift may go up — but it doesn’t make your heart rate climb. Take the stairs when you can, even if just for a floor or two. And don’t stand on the escalator – climb it. Those can be active steps, too!
8. Reach for the stars
Not done any star jumps since PE at school? Make it a habit to do squats or star jumps whilst the kettle boils or the microwave is on. Simples.
