How to Fit Exercise Into Your Busy Schedule
Make a commitment - even a small one - to exercise seven days a week. Begin with 20 minutes of activity every day; this can be broken down any way you need it throughout the day.
Step 1
Try walking, biking or skating to work. If this takes longer than your usual commute, plan ahead: Pack your briefcase and lay out your clothes the night before. Remember to have an extra set of clothes at work for a quick after-commute change, if necessary.
Step 2
If an alternate commute is impossible, get off the bus a little earlier and walk the rest of the way, park at the far end of the lot or take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Step 3
Make use of your lunch break. Make a speedy gym visit, go for a jog or take a brisk walk (use some light hand weights for a bonus workout).
Step 4
Stretch at your desk. This reduces muscle tension, gets your circulation moving and prepares you for more strenuous activity later.
Step 5
Do some chores. Mow the lawn or rake the leaves for 20 minutes. Vacuum. Housework burns calories, and you have to get the work done anyway.
Step 6
Play games with your kids. Shoot some hoops, play some hopscotch or toss a ball.
