We rush through our days, always too busy to take some time for ourselves. Unfortunately, this can leave negative consequences on our health and it’s important to stay as active as possible, even with so many things to do every day. Here’s what you can do to keep your heart healthy.
Use the Stairs
Whenever you can, use the stairs instead of an elevator. Going up and down a few floors will make your heart pump faster and that’s always good, especially if you aren’t too active on a daily basis.
Give yourself half an hour more to run errands and skip the car or transport. This, of course, depends on where you live, but try to add at least half an hour of walking every day if possible.
Get a Dog
Many people find it easier to be active when they make a commitment to someone else, and that someone can easily be a dog who requires walking a few times per day. This is a great option if you work from home and spend most of your day inside.
