Innovative Methods To Get More Movement In Your Daily Life

If the phrase “get your daily exercise” makes you angry, it’s time to realize that it’s all about movement and that very little effort is required!

That’s correct. It’s time to stop thinking of everyday exercise as a commitment requiring you to run five miles or bench press your weight. The demand can be much less strenuous and should be appropriate for your fitness level.

Every component of your body benefits from daily movement, from your brain to your joints. It’s also not simply about high-intensity, sweat-inducing activity. It’s simple: improving your everyday mobility can help you improve your overall health, whether you want to include tiny motions into your routine or try a new activity like cycling or yoga.

Stand Up

If you sit at a desk all day like I do, simply stand up every now and then to get those postural muscles going. To keep those muscles working, they begin drawing sugar and fat from the bloodstream.

Set a reminder for yourself every hour or so, or simply make it a policy to always stand up when receiving calls if you’re prone to getting completely involved in your work. The pomofocus application can help you here.
Pomofocus is a pomodoro timer that works on both the desktop and mobile browser. This app’s goal is to help you focus on whatever task you’re working on, whether it’s studying, writing, or coding.

How to use the Pomodoro Timer?

  1. Add tasks to work on today
  2. Set estimate pomodoros (1 = 25min of work) for each tasks
  3. Select a task to work on
  4. Start timer and focus on the task for 25 minutes
  5. Take a break for 5 minutes when the alarm ring
  6. Iterate 3-5 times till the tasks are completed

Include calls while walking

I recommend taking advantage of your phone call time to go for a walk. If you want to catch up with a friend or family member, for example, simply put on your headphones and circle the block while talking. It’s a very easy way to get extra exercise, and you’ll usually be so preoccupied with the discussion that it won’t feel like a bother.

If you work from home or use virtual conference calls, take a stroll during one of your calls each day.

Plug in your headphones, put your phone in your pocket, and go on a stroll to fix the world’s issues if you don’t need to be staring at a screen looking at spreadsheets. It’s an excellent method to add variety to your regular routine.

I recommend using the i7s TWS Wireless headphones. Its price is quite good, but it gets the job done.

Features:

  1. Listening to the song correctly, supporting songs and calling.
  2. Remind call number, the last call back, all intelligent Chinese and English voice prompts, boot, pair, shut down the phone power will be low voice prompts.
  3. Power capacity will show on your mobile phone.
  4. One to two connections, can be connected to two mobile phones at the same time
  5. Bluetooth headset connected to the phone after the shutdown, and then opening the Bluetooth headset will connect back to the phone automatically.
  6. Intelligent compatibility: support all Bluetooth mobile phones, tablets, notebooks, singing it, QQ music, movies, etc., universal all mobile phone

Use The Stairwell

Your body and heart will appreciate you for skipping the elevator.

Taking the stairs instead of the elevator raises your heart rate, improves balance, and strengthens your lower-extremity muscles. If you have a few minutes, you may perform some heel lifts off the edge of a step to strengthen your calf muscles, or walk the stairs two at a time to strengthen your leg and glute muscles while simultaneously getting your heart rate up.

Stretch At Your Desk

A desk job requires you to stay in one posture while performing repeated activities.

The habits we develop at work, particularly when sitting, can lead to pain and health problems, such as:

  • shoulder and neck ache
  • obesity
  • musculoskeletal conditions
  • stress
  • lower back pain
  • carpal tunnel

Stretching at your desk is beneficial for blood flow and circulation, as well as spine health and overall flexibility. In the video above, you’ll see some terrific techniques for stretching and releasing your body while seated.

Always remember to breathe properly and never hold your breath during the stretches. You can find yourself becoming more flexible with each stretch. Don’t go any further than you feel comfortable with.

Sit On A Fitness Ball

Replace your desk chair with a stability ball. This prop is an inflatable ball with a diameter ranging from 45 to 85 cm. It’s affordable, foldable or deflatable, and can be used as an office chair. This can help with back discomfort and improve posture, and you can do some gentle mobility exercises for your neck, pelvis, and spine while sitting on the ball.

To assist activate your core stabilizers, try hula-hooping and tucking and untucking your pelvis. You can also practice seated marches or other exercises on the ball while sitting at your desk if you want to do some abdominal work.

Stretch or Exercise During TV Time

I realize this goes beyond the “binge and chill” tenets, but I don’t think I’m the only one who is often torn between a desire to be fit and active and a desire to be a total sofa spud. During your next Netflix binge, walk on the treadmill, ride a stationary bike, stretch on the floor, lift weights for upper- and full-body strength, or perform Pilates.

If you move throughout a 30-minute show, that’s 30 minutes of exercise you didn’t get previously! If that feels like a decent place to start, you can even limit it to when the advertisements come on.

Keep your workout gear near your “binge-watching” spot, and do some bodyweight exercises or foam rolling as you watch. Arm strength, posture, and well-being can all be improved with only a few reps of bicep curls, tricep presses, or arm lifts using modest hand weights.

Dance More

Remove all of the furnishings from the room and play some music. This can be done while you’re cooking, folding laundry, or vacuuming.

Dancing is one of my favorite activities because it does not feel like a workout.

Dancing is a great method to burn calories while also improving your balance and coordination. So, the next time you notice you’ve been sitting for a few hours, put on your favorite pump-up song and let it free for a few minutes. 

You can even turn it into a game or a competition with your children. Isn’t it true that they need to learn about 80s rock? Put on some music (or whatever gets your feet tapping) and start shaking.

In Conclusion

I hope that these innovative methods will stimulate and inspire you to get up and move more during the day.

I understand how difficult it is to stick to a schedule. When you first start exercising, it can be intimidating, but attempting a couple of these things can help.

There are a slew of extremely effective minor changes you can make to your daily routine that will make a big difference in your overall health and that you can generally perform while doing other things.

Start with a few lunges here and there, a weekly walking meeting, or a few trips up and down the stairs, and before you know it, you’ll be moving and swaying much more than before.
