And if you care about your health, there are a few other things you can do to stay fit and healthy with relative easy.
First, if you like using fitness equipment, don’t waste your time or money on a gym membership. Studies show that as many as 80% of gym memberships go unused. You are better off getting a treadmill or similar workout machine and having it in your home where you will have easy access to using it. (Be sure to read some treadmill reviews before making a purchase.) If you walk by it everyday, chances are infinitely greater you will actually use it.
Second, drink more water, especially cold water. Your body temperature is about 98 degrees, so when cold water enters your system, your body works to heat up the water. This burns calories. It also helps to speed up your metabolism which will give you more energy, energy which can be used to do some exercise.
And last of all, find opportunities to stand or walk. If you ware watching television, stand for as long as you can before sitting down. If you work at a desk, get up every hour and walk around your office for a couple of minutes. Doing these little things will help with your circulation and that will help you avoid fatigue. And sitting for a prolonged time has been shown to shave years off your life.
