									Fitness Tips For The Busy Woman

Many women today are busy with their family, their work and everything in between. Unfortunately, many of them
let exercise fall to the back burner. Exercising is very important to a woman's health and should be a part
their life whether you are busy or not. Exercise gives women energy and better sleep. It also helps women to
feel better about themselves and gives confidence. If you are a busy woman who is looking for a way to add
exercise to your life the following article can help.

Exercise is very important and should not be shoved to the side. Just as you would any other important
activity in your life, schedule in your exercise. I know, you are probably asking, "But where?" Do you have
break at work? Or maybe you would rather exercise during your lunch hour? Some women even like to get up early
and do their exercise routine first thing in the morning.

Exercise with your family. When you are planning to spend quality time with your family, instead of doing
sedentary activity, do something physical. There are a lot of fun physical activities that families can
together. You and your family can play a fun game of basketball, soccer, volleyball or any other game your
family likes. If your family likes to ride bikes, go on a bike ride. You could also take a hike at
favorite park.

Purchase a gym membership. Gyms are great places for busy moms to work out. There are many options at most
gyms. If you want to run on the treadmill, you can do that at the gym. Or maybe you want to take an aerobics

Exercise in shorter sessions. If you find yourself with 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there, use that time
sneak in some cardio exercise. If you have a break at work, you can take a walk, do some jumping jacks, run in
place or walk up the stairs, or anything that gets your heart pumping. Research shows that three 10 minute
sessions of cardio are just as good as one 30 minute session. You can also leave dumbbells or other exercise
equipment at work. When you find a few minutes in your day, do an exercise. Exercising during your work day
not only helps get you into shape, it will also give you the much needed energy you need to get through the
rest of your day.

Set realistic goals. If you are not a runner, do not tell yourself that you will run a 5K in two weeks.
It take some time to build up to that. You know you need to add exercise, but do not make a goal to exercise
two hours a day if you know that is impossible. Make goals that you can reach and you will be more likely
work towards them.

Staying in shape can pose a challenge for busy women. The advice in this article can help you easily add more
physical activities into your daily life.
