									Fit These Four Easy Ways to Exercise into Every Day

Eating healthier foods and losing a few pounds can help you begin to meet your conditioning goals. Now you can
start to add more physical activity into your daily routine to help you as well. While trips to the gym
investing in expensive exercise equipment might not appeal to you at this point, you can still make several
relatively minor changes to the way you go though your day that will give you enough increase in physical
activity to make a positive difference in your health and well-being. Here are four easy ways to start taking
a more active approach to your life.

Don't park in the closest spot in the parking lot. It's an understandable habit that we acquire over
years, cruising through the parking lot, row after row, looking for a spot that is only a short distance
a store entrance. Change that habit by purposefully looking for a spot that is farther away at the outer edges
of the parking lot. That will give you a chance to take enough steps to get your blood pumping and your
muscles working. Your lungs will take in more oxygen and you can begin to increase your stamina.

If you're like most people, you put the things you use most often during the day in a place that's easy
reach without much effort. Think of ways you can reverse that habit. Instead of putting the remote for your
television within a few inches of where you're sitting on the couch, leave it on top of the TV or even
another room. If you want to change the channels or adjust the volume, you'll be required to get up and walk
short distance to get it. It's a small adjustment in your life, but one that can make a major improvement
your health.

Use those built-in climbing stations you have been avoiding all these years called stairs. Instead of standing
motionless while you wait for and then ride the elevator, head for the stairs. You don't need to race up them
to get a worthwhile workout, simply take the steps at a normal pace. That applies for both going up and going
down. Each direction will use your muscles in a different way, so you can work more of your body.

You don't need to give up your time spent relaxing in front of the television, but change your habits by using
commercial breaks to get up and do some stretches. You don't even need to move too far away from your favorite
spot. Just stand up and slowly and gently bend over as if to touch your fingertips to your toes. Bring your
upper body back up straight and raise your arms over your head. Lower your arms to each side, extended at
shoulder height, and twist your torso to the left then to the right once or twice, only going as far
as you
can without discomfort. Doing this routine, or other similar stretches of your choice, will increase
your level. You might find that you would prefer to take a little walk around the block with a friend
than sit back down to watch another show.

You can see from these suggestions that by changing small habits that have been keeping you stagnant during
the day, you can add enough activity to your days to help you reach your physical fitness goals. Start
implement these tips and feel the difference it can make in your life!
