It is common knowledge that we need to move our bodies and get plenty of exercise. To a lot of people this is only viewed as buying expensive workout clothes and gear, paying a large gym membership fee or taking a lot of time out of their day.
It doesn’t have to be that way. With a little creativity and forethought, one can realize that more of his daily, hum-drum activities can and already do include exercise.
Many people don’t drink enough water because it may require extra trips to the restroom. Think of it this way: That 5 minute break from your desk to the toilet involves standing (weight bearing), stretching (range of motion) and walking (circulation).
I had a friend state that she didn’t want glass shower doors because she didn’t want to have to squeegie them each time the shower is used. That arm lifting and squatting is great exercise.
There is also the “use the stairs” and “park further away” ideas to help increase your movement during the day. The bottom line is to reverse your thinking about those boring daily chores and turn them into “micro workouts“.
So take good care of your body and your mental state. Give yourself credit for all the “moving and shaking” that you do without realizing it.
Be well.Perform well. Stay well.
