It is one of the most used excuses for those who have no desire to play sports: not having time for physical activity in many cases is also true, but sometimes it is just an alibi that allows us to silence our conscience and send it back to another day. But we know well that it is the constancy to reward those who apply with the best results, managing to find even a few tens of minutes a day.
If during the day we do not really have a moment of time as we are engaged in other activities, work in the first place, then we act on other fronts: we take better care of our food and camouflage physical activity among our daily activities.
Go up the stairs on foot, use the bicycle instead of the car, do not take the elevator and park a little farther away or get off at the stop before the bus stop. It is little, but it makes the difference because at the end of the week you will have accumulated quite a bit of movement.
When you are at home or have a long enough break, do some exercise. You can do exercises at the desk, during house cleaning, even in the queue in your car. And if your lunch break is long enough, find a nearby gym that offers fun courses.
Think about it: getting up and sitting down from your chair ten times equals three squats, that is, exercises to tone your buttocks and legs. So let’s make sure we don’t always sit at our desk, but move around every now and then. For example, avoid sending an e-mail or calling if we need to communicate with a colleague in the same building.
And just because we have mentioned the long ours spent at your desk, remember that working at the desk is the biggest enemy of your blood circulation
The circulation is slowed down, the postures are often wrong. How to remove the risk? Changing position frequently, getting up as soon as you can, avoiding too tight clothing on the groin, especially if you are used to overlapping the legs and drinking water often, to keep the body hydrated.
Another idea to exercise is to take the stairs to go up to the top floors of our office and not use the elevator. Same apply for when we have lunch and coffee breaks: we go up and down on foot!
On the weekend, on the other hand, you will certainly have some more time. It is enough to choose the discipline that you enjoy the most, that you do not live as a punishment but as something that strengthens you. For some it is the bicycle, for others it can be a sailboat, mountain hikes, skating but also some outings with friends during which, in addition to eating, you play a little outdoors, perhaps with your dog. Ho yes, your dog can help you, and here is how.
Taking care of it, taking it out, playing with it together represents a natural increase in daily physical activity which, if it was completely absent previously, highlights its effects in a short time.
Not only that, having a dog alone naturally leads us to organize outdoor activities more frequently. Which are good for him but also for us.
