No time for a Work Out - try a Work In! May 8, 2018 21:02

One of the most popular reasons that people state for not exercising is - I don't have time!  Certainly, the demands of family, work, social media...can take away valuable time from our day. But, there is a simple way to get around this problem.

Try incorporating exercise into activities that are already a part of your daily routine. For example, adding a set of squats and heel raises while brushing teeth in the morning and at night is a great way to strengthen your lower body.  For aerobic conditioning marching in place either seated or standing while you are watching tv will raise your heart rate - and even help you maintain or improve bone density. 

So if you can't squeeze a work out in your busy day try a work in.  Any exercise is better no exercise.  Consult your physician before starting , start easy and stay with it.
