5 Options To Beat The Routine And Start A Physical Activity

Scientific evidence says so: regular physical activity helps prevent chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer, obesity, depression, osteoporosis, hypertension, cardiovascular and many other diseases. That is why a sedentary lifestyle, or lack of physical activity is so dangerous for all of us. So, exercise for healthy life is very important and we need to do it on regular basis. In this article will discuss about some of the best exercise for overall health that will keep you healthy and make your life happy.

The relationship between physical activity and health is direct: the increase in sport and exercise in a person's life will bring him more health in the short, medium and long term. With this being the picture, why aren't you exercising?

If sedentary lifestyle has been installed in your life in recent years, you should start little by little, including exercise progressively. Here are some of the activities or list of exercises you can do without disrupting your busy daily routine:

1. Go Up The Stairs

If you are one of those who takes the elevator to go up to floor 2 you need a change. Start using the stairs in your home or office by going up a few floors first. Do it daily, consistently, adding one floor per day. In a short time, you will notice how your breathing improves and you will not get tired so fast.

2. Walk Whenever You Can

Modern life forces you to sit longer than is healthy, especially in cities with high traffic. Turn this to your advantage and park your car on a more remote beach or in a position far from the entrance of the mall. This will motivate you to walk to and from your car.

If you use public transportation, you can get off three stops before your destination and walk those blocks in the name of your health. Review the routes you frequently use to go to the supermarket, for example, and assess how far you can walk.

3. Dance

It's free, it's simple, you can do it alone, as a couple or in a group, dancing is the perfect exercise if you want to progressively stop being sedentary. You just need to put on music and start moving your body. In addition to the physical benefits, it will help you distract yourself and manage stress.

4. Stretch

Set an alarm every hour and force yourself to get up from your desk or interrupt what you're doing to do a simple 10-minute stretching routine. It is not exactly an exercise, but this "active break" will help you get your body back into activity, as well as being excellent for your concentration. When you go back to your task you will have much more focus.

5. Ride The Bike

Do you remember when in childhood you went everywhere by bike, rollerblading, running or walking? That hyperactivity is obviously lost over the years, but you can get back to the fun of biking in short stretches or going for a bike ride with your kids on the weekends.

The benefits of riding a bicycle are multiple and that will keep you active as well as being a fun option to share with the family.

The most important thing to stop being sedentary is:

  1. Have the will to change for your health and
  2. Plan well. Make a list of your tasks for the day and honestly evaluate when you can invest in a physical activity. Maybe you can get up an hour earlier and go for a walk before starting work or go to the office earlier to go to work out at the end of the day.

By including these types of physical exercise in our daily routine not only we become healthier but our life also become more happier. Also these are some of the best examples of exercise that we can do easily even if we don't have time.

These recommendations seem very small, but they are ideal to start with. After a month of climbing the stairs or walking short sections every day, you will want to go for more until you reach between 210 and 420 minutes (between 3.5 and 7 hours) per week of moderate physical activity recommended.
