Fitness for the Busy Lifestyle

By Anne Keckler | February 6, 2008

Busy LifestyleI have a very busy life. On most days I homeschool my children, cook at least one meal, try to do some housework, and drive children to various activities, including gymnastics, theatre, and art. Where does a person like me find time to keep fit?

The answer to this question will vary, but the most important thing is to make exercise and proper diet high priorities. If they are important enough to you, you will find ways to accomplish what you want to accomplish. Obviously, the most important thing to me is to take care of my children, but it would be much more difficult for me to do that if I didn’t have the energy and vitality that I get from regular exercise.

Here’s a list of ideas for fitting exercise and a healthy diet into your busy day:

    This is a very comprehensive list of the little things someone can do to cram physical activity into their day.

    I laugh to myself everytime I hear someone (several times a week) say they don’t have time to exercise, but they can drone on for half an hour about the 3 tv shows they watched last night. Watching one less tv show a day and substitute exercise (or do both if following some of the suggestions) is enough to get in a workout.

    For very busy people with little downtime during the day/evening, it simply is training your body to get out of bed an hour earlier. It takes some getting used to, but it can be done.

    Good article!

    Thank you for this, I am always being pushed by the clock, and while I don’t waste time watching TV I do get too much screen time on my Macintosh. Having strategies to help me exercise in small doses is also helpful because of my arthritis and scoliosis.

    Great read. This provides proof that people don’t have to spends hours a week in a gym to get into better shape. I will say that going to the gym expedites the process, especially for someone like me who easily gets sidetracked by things needing to be done.

    With my job, I’m sitting in front of a computer 8 hours a day. I’ve made it a habit to get water to drink each day, which involves going down a flight of stairs; we have no elevator. This works on two problems at one time: Getting plenty of water to drink (I drink a gallon a day at work) and fitting in some exercise during the day.

    Vicham, adding little activities into your daily routine will certainly not take the place of a real workout, but for many people it would be more than they are doing currently. Notice that some of my first suggestions involve finding time for real, sustained exercise.

    Does anyone know of a person in Tallahassee who teaches a hula hoop fitness class ??? We are looking to add new classes to our schedule and would like to possibly add something like a hooping class!
