STAYING FIT ON THE GO

From FOCUS ON THE FAMILY

Am I the only one whose life feels like a three-ring-circus?

Between work and family and all the other things going on, I can hardly keep my head above water, much less find time to exercise.

And chances are, you’re feeling the same.

Here are a few tips for keeping your body fit on the go: Try walking every chance you get.

You don’t need an hour to walk around the block to get your blood pumping – just look for ways to work it into your day.

Take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator, or pace in your office while talking on the phone. Little steps add up quickly.

Use break times wisely. Instead of sitting in the lounge with a cup of coffee, walk around the building a few times.

Or, you could find a quiet place to stretch your muscles, or even do a few sit-ups – do whatever it takes to keep your bones and body moving.
