Back away from the computer slowly. Now stand up and go walk. Seriously.

healthy-livingAre you getting exercise in? Oh, so you say you don’t have time or money to put a health club and that’s the main reasons why. Well that’s not good enough. You already have the best exercise equipment known to man and that’s your two legs. You already have a gym that’s all around you. It’s called “outside”. Now take those two legs for a walk or a jog outside and there you have it, instant gym.

There’s no better way to get in a little exercise that’s healthy for you than using your own two legs to walk or jog, even go running, if that’s your thing. All you need to do is throw on a pair of sneakers and open your door. Great! Now just step outside. Once you’ve done that keep taking steps and walk for at least 20 minutes. You say you don’t have a lot of time, a 20 minute walk 3-4 times a week is getting you a short little workout in and also giving you the benefit of breathing some fresh air and soaking up some sunshine rays. Sunshine gives you something your body needs besides that tan you’ve been wanting to work on. It gives you a healthy natural dose of Vitamin D which is a boost to your immune system.

You can also do little things that help you get in some exercise in ways that might not have crossed your mind but are simple and easy to do. For instance, you may be busy looking to go back to school through sites like and working your regular job and taking care of your household so you don’t have time for a workout. You try doing the 20 minutes of walk time 3-4 days a week, and enjoy it, what else can you squeeze in? Try doing things like when you go to the shopping mall, parking at the back far end of the parking lot and walking from there to the mall. When you’re done shopping you’ll have the walk back. There, just by doing that you added a touch of exercise to your day. Think outside the box and you’re sure to come up with things along that line to do to add a few extra steps to your day.

You want to be healthy, it shows in what you eat and your lifestyle, it’s just being so busy. Is it too much to take time for your health, it’s for your life so you can be around to enjoy it a little longer. Find ways to squeeze exercise in. What was mentioned previously means you don’t have to shell out big bucks for a gym membership that you’ll probably only use for 2 or 3 weeks. You can walk and it’s free! If it’s a rainy day and you want to get a walk in, go window shopping at the mall. A lot of people take their walks indoors to the mall when it’s raining. You have plenty to look at and dream about buying while you’re walking. Keep that healthy lifestyle going and walk. It’s free, and it’s good for your health. Doesn’t get much better than that!
