Self-care and relaxation is always important, and you should never put too much pressure on yourself to fulfill a daily quota of movement. However, working small exercises into your everyday routine can actually help you stay happy, energized, and healthy.
These micro-fitness activities don’t have to be sweaty, exhausting, or time-consuming.
On the contrary, little movements can spice up monotonous tasks. Here are some things to try the next time you feel yourself stiffening up:
Why just work when you can walk? Setting your materials on an elevated surface and marching in place while working will help keep your heart rate elevated. It will also keep things moving when days are slow.
Become a cleaning machine! Tidy up the house and strengthen your legs at the same time. It’s easy – challenge yourself to pick up ten misplaced items, incorporating a jump squat or jumping jack into each retrieval.
Dance the day away. Whether you’re making lunch, taking a shower, or doing the dishes, dancing can make it better! Blast your favorite tunes and show off your moves.
