Looking for ways to squeeze some exercise into your hectic schedule? If you’re looking to lose weight, then exercise is one of the best ways to do it. Busy mums often find it tough to make time but it’s more than possible if you plan things correctly and put your mind to it. Don’t let yourself become deterred and you could see the results of increased physical activity in no time at all!
Give Yoga A Go
One of the best things about yoga is that it can be practised from almost anywhere. If you haven’t got time to head out to an exercise class or can’t be far from the kids, why not give yoga a go from the comfort of your own home? You can easily find yoga mats that are available to buy online, so you can get set-up at home in no time at all. Some of the best and easiest to follow yoga workouts are available online and for free. Simply search on YouTube for some of the best videos created by brilliant yoga instructors. Yoga can help de-stress you and help you to sleep better at night too, so it really does have its benefits beyond just improving your health.
Invest In A Home Gym
Stop paying all that money for the expensive gym membership you simply do not use. If you never have time to leave the house to go for a work-out, then why not bring the gym closer to you? You could convert your garage or a spare room into a home gym! You needn’t pull out all the stops straight away, simply start with a few mats, some free weights, and a mirror on the wall. When you needn’t leave the house to go to the gym, you’ll feel much more inspired to go and workout. This takes up far less time as there is no travel involved. You can squeeze so much more exercise into your weekly routine by doing it from home instead. Result!
Join Forces With Other Mums
There are bound to plenty of other mums in your life that find themselves in the same situation. Many mums are super stressed, very busy, and without any will in the world to exercise. If you can get a group of you together, then you should rely on one another for motivation. You could start a speed walking club, a cycling group, or even go on runs together. Whatever you fancy doing, the important thing is that you stick to it. Your collective group spirit and the willpower of multiple mums should enable you to do just that. Most of the time, finding an excuse not to exercise is easy but when other people are counting on you or relying on you, then it suddenly becomes much easier to justify in both your mind and your diary.
I hope this has given you ideas for ways to squeeze some exercise into your hectic schedule!
