If you stop and think there are so many different things we can do everyday to benefit us physically. I'm talking about getting the most health benefits from doing simple things a little different that we are used to. The good part is these activities we already do, but lets stop and see if we can do them in a new way to get the most benefit out of them.
I know you have heard this before but it all adds up to make a difference in out health. Take the steps instead of elevator, especially if it is only a few flights of stairs.
When you are walking to and from, try to pick up the pace. Walk more briskly every where you go. You will burn more calories throughout the day and it will make you feel better about yourself.
Why sit and watch TV commercials when we can get up and do something. Do some stretches, take out the garbage, go upstairs and pick up dirty clothes. Organize a messy room.
Do not sit down and talk on the phone. Get up and walk around, move around, the key is to use the time we would typically be inactive and turn it into something active. They all add up at the end of the day.
Do you daily chores everyday. Take the dog for a walk, empty and take out trash, clean a bathroom or dust of some furniture. be productive and active and it will have enduring benefits to you.
Go outside and do something. Pick up trash or sticks in the yard, gardening, cleaning garage, anything that gets you up and moving. It is more difficult to sit around and do nothing outside. Plus you get the benefit the sun and fresh air. Have fun with it and try new ideas to get up and be more active in everything you do.
