Tips for Busy Mums to Stay Fit
Being a mum is a full time job and it requires pretty much all of your time and attention, but as a mum you need to learn how to stay fit so that you can be healthy for your children and also teach them good habits to have.
As a mum you are constantly on the go and juggling all the different tasks that you have and staying fit usually gets side-tracked.
Here are some tips that you can use to stay fit and can fit into your busy schedule.
Driving is the quicker option in most situations, but walking is the healthier option. If you are just running a quick errand then try to walk or even bike there instead of hopping in your car. You will feel good about yourself and also walking doesn’t harm the environment.
Exercise with the Kids
Try and find ways that you are able to include your kids in your workout. This is not only fun, but both you and your kids will be getting exercise.
Turn Chores into a Workout
Cleaning and other household chores is something that can’t be escaped and is also used as an excuse by many mums to get out of exercising. You can though turn those daily chores into a workout. You can do your chores with more energy or put on some music and dance whilst you clean.
Cans for Weights
Instead of spending money on buying weights rather just use a few everyday household items. For instance when you are making cereal for the kids do a few curls with the carton or use cans as weights.
Personal Trainer at Home
Instead of going out to get fit why not rent or buy a fitness video, which will then allow you to work out from the comfort of your home.
Fit in the Office
Workdays are full of opportunities to get fit. Instead of taking the elevator rather take the stairs. When you are sitting at your desk do some stretching exercises and also go outside for lunch. There are 8 hours in a work day so you need to make them count. Also exercise at work can help with stress.
