Burn Your Calories

If exercise is the last thing you want to do, due to your hectic schedule, then maybe it is time to spice up your routine with shorter sessions and newer ways. Incorporate these fitness trends, to keep yourself fit and healthy.

1. Be Active in Daily Life

Try to incorporate physical activity into your daily life.

2. Walk and Talk

Even if you're glued to your phone for work calls, don't be glued to your seat. Make it a habit to walk and talk.

3. Do Household Chores Yourself

Do sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming and other household works yourself. These types of housekeeping activities can burn a significant number of calories.

4. Prefer to Walk

For short distances prefer to walk rather than using vehicles.

5. Take the Stairs

Prefer stairs rather than elevators. You may huff and puff at first, but over time, your body will thank you .

6. Go for Dance or Aerobics

Dance or do aerobics at home. For more fun ask your family members to join in. It is a great stress-buster as well as physical activity.

7. Pursue Your Outdoor Hobbies

Pick something that really interests you. What sport do you enjoy watching on television? For example, if you never miss the Australian Open, perhaps taking up tennis would interest you.

8. Take Your Pets For a Walk

It's a great activity for you as well as your pet.

9. Shorten Your Exercise Sessions

Try to break up your exercise sessions into two 15-minute blocks, or even into three 10-minute blocks, if finding a spare 30 minutes each day to exercise is difficult. You'll still reap the fitness benefits.

10. Utilize Your Spare Time

Practice stretching or light yoga moves while talking on the phone, listening to the news, or while dinner is cooking.

11. Get Up a Little Early Than Your Normal Schedule

Get up 15 to 30 minutes earlier than your regular schedule and use this time for a run, a walk, or some stretching and yoga.

12. Monitor your calorie consumption

Keep a check over food you consume. Prefer food which provides you more energy and fewer calories.
