Busy? How to Stay Fit When You’re Swamped

Stay Fit When You're Swamped!

Are you super swamped? Does your day start really early in the morning and end late at night? Do you feel like there is too much to do and so little time for exercise and fitness? It is possible to stay fit when you’re busy – here’s how!

How do busy people squeeze exercise into their packed schedules? For starters, both running and walking are excellent choices for extremely busy people. Both are great kinds of physical exercises that will allow you to burn more calories, shed unwanted pounds and control your weight. Walking is easier, but running makes you burn more calories for the same period of time. Fast walking may be the most preferable combination of both, as it makes you burn calories and does not require too much time.

For example, a 150 lb person walking at 3mph burns approximately 320 calories per hour. Brisk walking at 4.5 mph burns even more calories, about 440 calories per hour.

Both running and walking have many advantages! You can run or walk even if you have only half an hour of spare time. It doesn’t take much to get your heart rate going and that’s really all you need to do to exercise. You do not have to go to a gym to exercise. Go outside and run or walk along the street or in the park. You can even spend 30 minutes on your home treadmill and catch up on your favorite television show.

If you’re trying to choose between running and walking, consider your general physical state. If you have physical limitations, problems with your back, excess weight or high blood pressure, you may want to stick to walking. If you can run, you should! Running will burn more calories and help you get in shape must faster than walking. Plus, if you have very little time to spend on exercising, running will be more beneficial to you in short bursts.

Also keep in mind that the length and difficulty of your physical activity should be appropriate for your age. It is always a good idea to ask your doctor for advice before making any significant changes to your lifestyle.

So, if your life is super busy, make sure you make time to exercise! It’s a great way to relieve stress and can be very calming!
