Take the Stairs Instead of the Elevator and Make a Change in Your Health

Take the Stairs Instead of the Elevator and Make a Change in Your Health

When we have to go up more than one floor, the only exercise we usually do is move our index finger to press the elevator button. We are in a hurry or tired, we say; actually, climbing the stairs is the last thing we can think of. Why is changing habits important? Next, we will tell you the benefits of adding more physical exercise to your daily routine.

Something so simple and that requires so little effort, we don't even care about doing it and yet, climbing stairs is a physical exercise that we should choose. One of the many physical activities that unexpectedly present themselves to us throughout the day. 

Why add physical exercises to the daily routine

One of the prevention factors for cancer is physical exercise and every day we have the opportunity to exercise easily with many of the things we do: like climbing the stairs, for example. This physical activity does not mean participating in marathons or weightlifting (lifting weights), but doing what we do not do because it gives us "laziness." 

How to generate the change of habits in our lives

If we have to go three blocks, let's walk or ride a bicycle, instead of going by car; the walk will revive us and we will even save time and gas. There are people who have become accustomed to walking to their office and use stairs instead of an elevator; walk to talk in person, rather than on the phone.

You will think it is nothing, but if we consider that in the office or at home, we can turn everyday movements into small exercises, we will have added up throughout the day and this, repeated day after day, will benefit us. The act of bathing or dressing are occasions of exercise if we pay attention when doing them.

It is very good if we complement all this with a scheduled physical exercise that takes us about thirty minutes each day. Walking is one option; dancing is another or doing aerobic exercises. Pedaling by bicycle is always beneficial and better if this exercise is done outdoors, because like the walk, it is better to do it outside a closed place.

These intentional activities are planned with the specific objective of doing physical exercise and being aware of what is done. 

Physical exercises that you can incorporate into your day

The effort is going to depend on oneself, but the important thing about these scheduled activities is their periodicity and constancy: we know that every day at a scheduled time, we will ride a bicycle, walk, do it vigorously, or jog. It is not a matter of forcing the body with this change of habit, but rather that it is getting used to little by little and then increasing the time or intensity.

The practice yoga or some kind of exercise like Pilates or swimming, are also highly recommended in a serious plan to achieve that physical activity is an important factor in our lives and together with a properly balanced diet, we help prevent Cancer.

Any problem that you have, from the point of view of health, with physical exercises, it is better to consult with the doctor. He will advise what is necessary. It goes without saying that physical exercise must be done in such a way that the body gets used to it, especially if we have never done it before. Try to limit the time you stay sitting because this is a risk for obesity to gain ground.

Let's exercise physically, which is an effective way to prevent cancer and a change in your health.
