Quick Fitness Tips
We know it can be difficult to find the time to stay in shape; between your job, household chores and for some even taking care of the children and other responsibilities, there is so little time left for rest that nobody wants to start exercising. Yet there is a solution, there are small compromises that you can make in order to modify your lifestyle and daily schedule. These fitness tips will help you not only to stay in shape, but to stay healthy as well. Strep throat for example is a very common problem, so the best treatment for strep throat is prevention through healthy lifestyles. We have a few quick fitness tips that will help you achieve your goals and tone your body.
These quick fitness tips can be squeezed in whenever you have a few moments to spare, a five-minute break and so on. Some of them can even be put to practice while you’re doing something else, like cleaning the house or taking the kids to school. Combine these with a balanced diet, lots of water and enough sleep and you’ll be more beautiful and radiant than ever. Here is what we recommend:
- Work those glutes – You can tone your tush anytime, in any moment of the day. Stand up while you’re having a conversation with someone and contract your glutes repeatedly and steadily. You can find time to do this when you’re in line at the store, when you’re out paying bills, while you’re talking on the phone and so on. It may not be much, but this exercise will work miracles after a while.
- Take the stairs – Don’t miss any occasion to take the stairs if you have to choose between them and the elevator. Unless you’re in a hurry, don’t be afraid to climb a few floors; this cardio exercise will improve your heart’s health and blood circulation, it will tighten your legs and glutes and you will burn lots of calories.
- Use every opportunity – Just because technology has offered us so many conveniences and our lives are much easier and comfortable now doesn’t mean we have to get completely lazy. Use every opportunity to get up from your desk and to move as much as possible; instead of telephoning a co-worker three cubicles apart, go pay them a visit and work those glutes while you converse. Take trips to the water cooler many times as day; not only will you move, but you’ll feel more inspired to drink water each time.
- Play with the kids – Children need just as much activity as adults do; in order to get them used to a dynamic life, involve them in activities that require moving, running, dancing and jumping about. Take this opportunity to exercise with them: play football, tennis, go swimming, ride your bikes, etc. You will get some quality family time and be fit!
- Stay hydrated – This aspect could not be stressed enough; your body is over 70% made of water, and that water serves to keep your body cool, much like a cooler on your computer. The water needs to flow though your body and hydrate the muscles and regulate certain functions and perform internal cleansing. Moreover, the more water you drink, the less you will eat and your skin will maintain its humidity and elasticity for a longer time.
- Clean the house – Those who have a maid that does all the work should start getting involved in doing some chores around the house as well. Even if you won’t start mopping the floor and cleaning the windows, you can still help to keep the house tidy. Put things back where they belong, dust the shelves, iron some clothes, any ol’ activity will do. The important thing is that you be active with every opportunity.
We hope these quick fitness tips will help you get in shape, and perhaps even inspire you to find thirty minutes a day for a comprehensive workout routine. As long as you don’t expect overnight results you can have the body you want and still have time for other activities you enjoy. Furthermore, you will be preventing a lot of health issues, so you won’t need that treatment for strep throat, common colds and other health issues.
