Some don’t like exercising or don’t have the opportunity of doing it. Either of these two options is the ultimate reason for not having an active lifestyle. Now, this article will show you how to get interested in exercising or how to get you to enjoy exercise.
Below are ways to exercise that don’t feel like it’s an exercise:
Hiking with your family or friends – Going on a hike is a great way to exercise for your body. There are a lot of reasons to hike. You can hike and enjoy your surroundings, chat with your friends and family members or you can day dream as you reflect how relaxing the nature is. It’s a bit tiring for beginners but this is also a way of exploring new surroundings if you don’t go outdoors. Invite your family or friends, pack a lunch and spend the whole day outdoors. You’ll encounter up and down hills and refreshing streams. Hiking is a free adventure but it is also an opportunity to be fit and healthy.
Walking – No time for hiking because most family members have their own appointments already. Now, go for a walk. Even a 15 to 30-minute brisk walk is a good start. You may call them just for that span of time.
Dancing – You will be sweating within ten to fifteen minutes of dancing. Go to Youtube and you can choose any dancing videos there. Zumba, Tango, and Flamenco are some popular types of dancing that can be seen on Youtube.
Cleaning the house – Most people don’t like to clean their house/apartments but this is a good exercise for you. Just wiping some appliances, mapping the floor will cause you to sweat. You can turn on your radio and play your favorite song/music as you clean.
Playing a musical instrument – Playing violin for an hour can burn as many calories as walking around a track at a normal pace for an hour. You may try other musical instruments like guitar, drum or piano.
Riding a bike to work – You can save a huge amount of money on gas if you regularly go to work by just using your own bike and at the same time, let your body exercise plus the beauty of nature as you go to your office.
