So exercise is not a part of daily life like it used to be. We now have to make an effort to make exercise a part our lives. But it doesn’t have to be a boring thing or cost money — exercise should be fun and it can be included into your normal day. Remember: any movement is good for your health!
Climb stairs instead of using lifts.
Ride a bike or walk to school, or get off the bus a few stops early and walk the rest of the way. You only need to plan your day a little better and you will save money and the environment.
Walking the dog is a good way of improving your fitness, and your dog will love it too.
At lunchtime, go for a walk with a friend instead of sitting down talking — you can talk while you walk. Get out into nature!
Have a game of soccer, badminton or basketball (or any other game) during your lunch break. Play school sports, even if you don’t think you are very good at sports.
Throw a ball to each other — this improves coordination and can be fun.
Go dancing with friends.
Make use of whatever is around you to fit physical activity into everyday life. You don’t need expensive gym equipment to help you exercise.
Do more exercise, and you will feel fit, energetic and positive about life. Move your body now!
