It’s important to be fit to cope with our busy lifestyles. Lack of fitness means lack of strength and stamina, both of which are needed to work and care for children as well as to enjoy life in general. Being fit means you don’t run out of energy halfway through the day, but can get through a day at work then come home and still have enough energy to tend to children and get meals – not to mention doing the housework. So who has time to get fit by doing special exercises?
Most people don’t want to get up even half an hour early just to go jogging or do a workout on the lounge room floor. The best way to fit fitness into your day is to incorporate more activity into your daily schedule. For instance, taking the stairs instead of the lift will certainly give you a good workout, especially if you run up them. Okay, run up just some of them, at least until your legs get fitter.
