Work it in

Exercise, exercise, exercise!!!! We hear it all the time that exercise is key to reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, losing weight and the list goes on….

However, as busy people we all know that trying to fit exercise into our busy schedules can be hard to do. So working it into your daily commute is a great option if it’s feasible for you. Walking or biking to work is a great way to get your exercise and get you to work.

Plus more work insurance plans are giving you money off for commuting to work by alternate transportation. Reduce stress and save money at the same time, count me in!!!

Walk it Off

Some people don’t like the “wear and tear” of high stress workouts and that’s understandable. You may get some great health benefits but tearing down the body at the same time is not always conducive to bone and joint health.

So for those of you who like low impact aerobics or just long walks, your in luck!!! Walking is a great way to burn calories, maintain health and lose weight! You don’t even have to do long walks. Take a 15 minute walk one day and 45 minutes another. Whenever you can find time just stretch those legs and move.

If you are consistent and don’t eat junk you will find that you can lose weight (up to 10 pounds a month!)

So get out and take a walk.

Rise, Exercise, Socialize

We all know that exercising is a great way to rid ourselves of unnecessary stress and help boost our metabolism but what most don’t know is that mornings is the best time for this.

Recent studies are showing that exercising in the morning can boost your mental clarity for up to 4-10 hours and boost your metabolism so that you burn more calories throughout the day. More productive and calorie burning, I’m in!!!

As an added bonus finding someone to join in on this morning fun with you helps you to meet these daily exercise goals by having an accountability partner and when you are out and going makes you push just that much more!! How awesome!!!

Have a great Thursday! 🙂
