How To Be Fit Without Trying

If you’re looking for ways to be fit without trying, this article is for you!

Do you find it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially if your job doesn’t need loads of physical activity? Sometimes, a gym routine can be too expensive, too crowded, or just too much hassle.

Unfortunately, sitting or lying around promotes weight gain. However, regular movement keeps your metabolism active. It’s your metabolism that uses your body’s resources (i.e. fat storage) to fuel it.

Although everyone is different, your metabolism’s activity along with your food choices and intensity of movement will determine how quickly you’ll see results.

Use these three simple tricks that can get you fit without trying.

Walk.

Walk every chance you get. If there are stairs, use them. If a destination will take between 30-40 minutes to walk to, do it!

The national daily recommends a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise. If you want to be fit without trying, walking is your new best friend. 

Stretch.

Stretching increases your breathing capacity. It can also burn many calories when it’s done the right way. Why not take up pilates or yoga? Join a socially-distanced class or find an established instructor online.

Stretching will not only keep you fit without trying, it does wonders for your mindfulness. Discover how many calories you burn by simply doing nothing here.

Laugh.

Laughing is an excellent way to be fit without trying. It engages your abdominal and oblique muscles, toning your waist and strengthening your midline.

Have you ever laughed so much your stomach hurt? You probably just burned about 200 calories! Skip ab day and watch a comedian for an hour or two. Ha ha!

Minimal effort, maximum success! That’s what we’re all about here! Which activity will you use to get f-i-t?
