4 Easy Ways To Move More & Get More Exercise Daily

Exercise is important to every process within your body. While you don’t want to overdo it and tax your system too much, most people end up underdoing it and not getting enough exercise. In this article we’ll be going through a handful of tips that will help you with this challenge and make it easier to get more exercise. Let’s jump right in.

Woman, Hiking

#1 – Take The Stairs

This one’s simple. When it comes to the easy decisions in life, take the one that’s a little more challenging and includes more physical activity. For example, instead of the escalator, take the stairs. Instead of parking closer, park out farther in the parking lot and walk the extra 30 feet. This is a simple way to begin making exercise more of a habit within your life.

#2 – Schedule A Walking Break From Work

Many of us work in some kind of office or desk job. Another great way to make exercise a bigger part of your life is to take breaks from work and walk. Walk around the block, walk to lunch, or even walk around your building for 10-15 minutes. It won’t seem like much at first, but the benefits will add up each day that you add this to your schedule and make it happen.

#3 – Hire Someone To Be Accountable To

This one’s a little sneaky, but it gives you even more leverage. Hire and pay someone to help you exercise more. A personal trainer that you schedule workout sessions is perfect. This way, they can help you with you exercise goals, and you have a set time to go and exercise. It’ll be tough at first, but over time it’ll get easier and easier. Scheduling and paying for the time is what makes this one most effective.

#4 – Exercise With A Friend Instead Of Alone

Lastly, when you have a friend to help keep you accountable, this can also help you exercise more. When you plan to go to the gym together after work, you can help motivate each other to get there and make it happen. Again, the habit is what we’re going for here. The more you make exercise a habit every day, the healthier your system is going to be.

The three keys are working some form of exercise into your daily life, getting more leverage on yourself to exercise by paying someone or working out with a friend, and finding out what motivates you and why. If you can answer those two questions, and begin to work in these new habits, you’ll reach your weight loss goals in no time.
