Let’s chat about exercise and how easy it can be to stay fit.
We all have our reasons for not getting enough exercise—busy schedules, health issues, the couch is the better option or simply not knowing where to start.
But the truth is, exercise doesn’t have to be daunting at all!
Let me share some simple and effective exercises with you.
First up, we have weight lifting.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to lift heavyweights like a bodybuilder.
Just grab a couple of bags of rice or tins of beans.
Sit down, extend your arms straight in front of you, and hold the weights for a count of 10.
Then raise them above your head for another count of 10.
Lastly, stretch your arms out to the sides in a cross shape and count to 10.
Repeat this routine as many times as you can, and don’t be surprised if your arms start feeling the burn—that means it’s working!
After a few weeks, you might even consider upgrading to proper handheld weights.
Believe it or not, walking is one of the best exercises you can do.
It doesn’t have to be a leisurely stroll; aim for a continuous walk of 15 to 30 minutes at a decent pace.
This will get your heart rate up and provide a cardio workout that helps ward off conditions like heart disease.
If you can find a hilly route and explore different places, even better!
And hey, if you don’t have a dog, ask a neighbour if you can take theirs along for added motivation.
Now let’s focus on those leg muscles.
If you have stairs at home or work, make the most of them.
Climbing stairs gives your legs and hips a fantastic workout while engaging your core muscles.
Take it steady—no need to run up and down—and keep going until you feel out of breath.
Do this daily, and soon enough, you’ll notice that you can tackle more flights of stairs without breaking a sweat.
Remember, any form of exercise is beneficial for your overall health.
It not only protects your heart but also helps prevent type 2 diabetes, boosts your immune system, and enhances your memory.
After a few weeks, you’ll start feeling healthier and discover a new zest for life.
When you’re just starting out, take it slow and gradually build up your endurance.
But trust me, with time, it’ll get easier, and you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.
