Keep Exercise On Your ToDo List Part 1

We’ve all been taught from a young age to fit in a little regular exercise. You know it’s good for both your body and your mind. But when your day gets busy, it’s too easy to skip. When you get out of the daily habit, it’s hard to pick it back up. It’s true, there are real road blocks to exercising, and lack of time is just one of them. But you can get through these road blocks and fit exercise into your day — at home or at the office.

Main ways to exercise :

A well-balanced exercise program has three parts. Try to add a little of each to your exercise routine.

  • Aerobic activity uses your large muscle groups and causes your body to use more oxygen. This kind of exercise is good for the heart, lungs and blood vessels. Brisk walking, jogging or running, and playing basketball are types of aerobic activities.
  • Resistance training, also called strength training, firms your muscles and makes them stronger. It also helps your balance and movement. Resistance training involves moves like lunges, chest presses and bicep curls.
  • Flexibility exercises stretch and lengthen your muscles. They also help keep your joints limber. Yoga is just one way to stay flexible.

    Pilates I do, but not as much as I once did. When I do any, its for mainly stretches, so no risk of pulling muscles and doing an injury.

    Tai Chi I do often, following dvd’s. I like David Dorian Ross.

      Most welcome. Exercise helps people lose weight and lower the risk of some diseases. Exercising regularly lowers a person’s risk of developing some diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Exercise also can help keep your body at a healthy weight.

    Thank you, it’s very useful information and I hope I can get started on some exercise at home. My biggest issue is consistency, any tactics on that?

      Start small, whatever you are comfortable with and easy for you to do. Start with 10 or 15 minutes each day. Choose a time which is convenient for you.
