How to Stay Active Inside When the Days Get Shorter
For some reason, shorter days seem to make it even harder to get enough exercise. It could be because the dark afternoons cause us to feel gloomy or because it’s less appealing to spend time exercising outdoors in the cold. However, staying active is important for maintaining a positive mood, especially when the short days seem to be draining your energy. Besides, there’s no need to head outside — there are plenty of ways to stay active indoors.
Buy your own Exercise Equipment
Finding time to make it to the gym can be challenging. A better solution may be simply to work out from home. Many routines require no equipment at all, although you’ll be able to do even more exercises if you purchase a few simple things, like a mat, some resistance bands, and a couple dumb bells. If you need inspiration, search for workout routines online — you’ll find that you’re spoilt for choice.
Add a Daily Workout to Your Schedule
Until your workout becomes part of your daily routine, it’s easy to forget about exercising entirely. Start prioritizing your workout by scheduling it just as you would a meeting or another important event. Better yet, if you schedule your workout at the same time each day, it will soon feel natural and you won’t even need to look at your calendar or set a reminder.
Move Around on Your Breaks
Take regular breaks from work — and from relaxing on the couch. Every few hours, find something to do that involves moving around and using different parts of your body. Doing small chores like vacuuming, scrubbing the oven, or mopping the floor are great ways to use your breaks.
