When the weather cools down as the season changes and fall creeps in, it can be easy to lose sight of your fitness goals. This, coupled with the warm and comfortable food that comes with thanksgiving, calls for the need to stay fit daily. At HiDow international, we believe that staying active daily is a great way to keep fit and prevent reaggravating injuries while you’re at it. Try these tips for how to fit daily:
Take the Stairs
Taking the stairs is a great way to be fit daily by getting your daily steps in. Taking the stairs is an excellent exercise in self-discipline that not only works out your body but making the decision to take the stairs instead of taking an elevator can feel like a small win for your fitness goals. It can give you the same feeling that you get after following through with your decision to go to the gym that day. Taking the stairs can also improve your cardio, lower your resting heart rate, and work out your legs and calves. Overall, taking the stairs when you can is a great way to stay fit.
Park Far Away
It can be really convenient to park right in front of the grocery store so that you can run in and out quickly, but parking far away is a great way to make sure that you have to take a bit of a stroll. Parking far away from where you are going and walking the extra distance is a great way to get your steps in, especially if you live a mostly sedentary lifestyle.
Take a Walk When You Can
Do you have a hard time getting away from “screen time” when you have a few minutes of downtime? Try incorporating walking breaks into your daily routine. Taking a stroll while you eat an apple on your break at work or walking in the evening after dinner. This can also be a great way to take in some fresh air and converse with your family, friend, or coworker.
Move Every Hour
Getting your daily steps can be a great way to stay fit, but you can also get more general movement in. Try doing a quick, 15-minute work out every hour. These can be squats, lunges, walking, or stretches!
Walk Your Dog
It can be easy just to let your dog go out into the yard for a few hours after you get home, but try to take them for a walk. If you already plan on taking a walk in the evening, bring them along! This can be a great way to keep yourself committed to taking your walk and letting them explore a little as well.
