Mundane Activities You Can Do To Get Your Exercise In

Here’s the thing. Lifestyle and weight management don’t have to be complicated! Sometimes, mundane activities can make a difference in your health and wellness journey. 

Exercising does not only mean that you lift weights or run a marathon, it’s all about moving your body and staying active on your own terms. Here are some simple yet effective ways to sneak in some exercise into your day-to-day that’s both good for your physical and mental well-being:

Walk during or after meetings.

If you’re working from home, you can turn your meetings into walking breaks around the house! While if you’re working in the office, you can try walking for a few minutes around the office after your meeting. Taking walking breaks get your blood flowing, stimulate creativity, and reduce stress levels.

It will also help you reflect on what’s discussed during the meeting. Kind of a win-win situation, right?

Use stairs instead of elevators

Stairs are a great way to strengthen leg muscles and burn extra calories throughout the day! Opting for the stairs over the elevator may take longer by a few minutes, but your future self will definitely thank you for doing it!

Dance it away! 

Blast your favorite songs and playlists as you dance your way into doing household chores. Not only is dancing a fun way to exercise, but it also boosts your mood and reduces stress, making your day brighter and lighter!

Have you tried gardening? 

The TikTok gardeners and Facebook Plantitas aren’t lying when they say tending to your plants can be a therapeutic way of relieving stress and connecting with nature! It’s also a good form of exercise when you dig, plant, and weed your plant babies.  

Even commuting counts!

If commuting is accessible for you,, try opting for walking, biking, or taking public transportation when going in and out of your work. It’s a great way to fit exercise into your daily routine while also reducing your carbon footprint. A win for you and Mother Nature!

Do stretching Breaks. 

If you work a 9-5, this is your sign to stretch your body and take short breaks every now and then. Stretching increases flexibility, relieves muscle tension, and promotes relaxation, especially during long periods of sitting or facing screens.

Household Chores. 

Vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, and even washing the dishes are forms of exercises that can get your heart pumping and activate muscles. Bonus part? Your house gets cleaned! 

Pro-tip: romanticize your life and these chores by turning on your music speakers!

Don’t forget to play with Pets. 

Whether it’s throwing a ball in the backyard or simply going for a walk in the park together, spending some quality time with your fur baby is a win-win for both of you!

Whichever of these you choose to do, get creative, have fun, and most importantly, always listen to your body’s needs. After all, living a healthy lifestyle is not about perfection or how hard the exercise should be, but about finding the right balance and enjoying the journey.
