Exercise: Every Little Bit Helps
The good news is there are lots of simple ways to sneak some easy exercise into your daily routine at home or work.
“We are such an all or nothing society, but at the end of the day you are better suited to spend five minutes walking in place then to say ‘I can’t train for the marathon, so I am not going to do anything,'” Coopersmith says.
“Nothing is a problem, something is good, and more is better up to a point,” adds exercise physiologist Robyn Stuhr, executive vice president of the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in San Diego, Calif. “I think people hesitate when they think they have blown a big workout opportunity, but you don’t always need to do a whole routine. Anything you can do to increase activity over the course of the day is good.”
If you really want to burn some calories? Climbing the stairs is a great weight loss exercise. “You can’t beat them,” she says. “Take every other step so you are really working your legs more. This can really make it a challenging workout.”
