More on exercise

November 3, 2009

If you’re part of the Butterfly Transformation Program you’ll know that I encourage all kinds of exercise. Not some horrible, hours long, sweat covered and tiring jym session, just plain old simple movement.

These movements might be just standing in line on one leg, or leaning against a wall on more of an angle than usual. Simple things, easy things. I’m not a big fan of a huge requirement to exercise. The more that’s needed to get started, the less you do.

Some of my most common suggestions for a little extra exercise every day are things like:

Parking the car further from the office.
Walking to the shops rather than driving.
Using a carrier rather than a trolley when shopping. (this also stops buying too much)
Taking the stairs instead of the lift.
Sitting on a swiss ball rather than chair.
Sitting without using the backrest.
Watch TV standing up. (Also helps cut down on TV!)
Watch TV and stretch at the same time.

What are other methods that you can do almost anywhere?
