How To Increase Your Physical Activity – Lose Weight & Feel Healthier on The CJA Lifestyle Plan
If you are very new to exercise it may be more sensible to start building up your daily activity with low impact movement. This has a lot to do with increasing your self awareness and paying more attention to your choices.
Be mindful of small things and try to fit movement into your life at all times. Take the stairs, walk to work or for the school run. Park away from the supermarket to get a few extra steps in.
A really good way to gauge and improve your general activity is to invest in a step counter and aim to do 10,000 steps a day. There are many available such as Fit Bit, Garmin, Polar and Apple watches. There are also many cheaper versions and a pedometer of any description will do the job.
It’s important to ask yourself ‘am I making an excuse to be lazy?’ We all do it, it’s just about being mindful of these tiny choices and taking the harder one.
