Fitting Exercise In A Busy Schedule

No one really has enough time left over in a day to exercise, but if you don’t get regular physical activity to stay fit, you’ll run out of time entirely too soon. Busy people do it every day by fitting it into their daily routine and keeping the mindset that exercise is a priority.


MAKE IT A GROUP AFFAIR - Healthy families and friends make exercise a routine, whether it’s biking or walking together, or spending more time on games than in front of the screens.

GET UP 20 MINUTES EARLIER - Stretch, do some crunches, jumping jacks, or go walking before you shower.

CLIP ON A PEDOMETER - If you’re aiming for 10,000 steps a day, your 'Move More' mindset will keep you moving.

TAKE THE STAIRS - In between meetings or classes, utilize the stairwells in the buildings.

MAKE USE OF YOUR LUNCH BREAK - Take a quick trip to the gym, walk, or do some light hand weights.

STRETCH AT YOUR DESK - Reduce muscle tension and get your blood circulating.

RAKE LEAVES - It is October and it needs to be done, along with other chores you can count on to burn calories. 

BREAK IT UP - You don’t have to do it all at once. Try several 10-minute activity boosts through the day.
