Wellbeing Wednesday – Exercise Tips For People

Wellbeing Wednesday – Exercise Tips For People

We’ve been through some historically uncertain times this year.

During this period of uncertainty, one thing has become crystal clear and that’s the importance of exercising regularly for your mind and body.

According to the NHS, the benefits include:

Reducing stress levels

Strengthening your immunity

Maintaining a steady weight

Improving your memory and brain functioning

Helping you to sleep better

Increasing feel-good endorphins to boost your mood

Yes, it seems that exercise is one of those things that we all know is good for us, but not all of us do it.

So, with that in mind, we jumped on the internet to find six easy ways to get moving.

  • Housework Out – Did you know that doing the domestic chores for 30 minutes can burn up to 220 calories on average. Time to get the mop out?
  • Working Out At The Car Wash – Getting your vehicle shiny and clean isn’t just easy on the eye, it’s helpful to the waistline, because on average washing your car can burn around 314 calories an hour.
  • Keep On Track – Keeping tabs on how much you’ve exercised can be hugely motivating. It’s never been easier to chart the number of steps you’ve taken in a day, or the calories you’ve burned, thanks to smartphones and fitness trackers.
  • Find A Fitness Friend – Although we’re all still being encouraged to socially distance, nothing is stopping you calling a friend and suggesting doing three 30-minute exercise sessions a week. You don’t have to do these together, but it keeps you motivated knowing you are accountable to someone and you spur each other on.
  • Small Things Add Up – Next time you are waiting for the kettle to boil, do some stretches. Or park a little further away on the school run. A series of small steps in the right direction can put you on the path to feeling much fitter.
  • Now We’re Walking – The most straightforward way to exercise is a low impact, brisk walk. It provides a change of scenery, some fresh air, and a new stimulus for the brain.

Before embarking on any new exercise plan, consult your doctor or a fitness professional.

If you are thinking of moving home, consult us for honest, expert and friendly advice.
