What Dr. Mimi Secor Can Say in an Interview
About How to Incorporate More Walking & Exercise Into Daily Life:
Make exercise a daily routine. Remember: the habit of exercising is more important than the intensity of the activity. Healthy choices add up to a lifetime of good health and wellness! Here are 10 simple traditional routines that you adjust to add more exercise into your everyday personal and work schedule:
- Don’t just save the stepper for the gym! Take the stairs at work (and anytime you have the option to take the stairs versus an elevator).
2. Walk as much as possible to do your errands. Park farther away from stores and walk. Bonus: You’ll get to be outside in the fresh air more.
3. Instead of shopping online, shop at physical stores in your area. You’d be surprised how those steps add up when you take to the streets instead of your computer while shopping.
4. Walk your dog, or walk with a friend before, during lunch, or after work. Making walking a routine in your everyday life will really have a positive affect on your life.
5. Exercise while you watch TV or read at home. Put those chips down! Mindless exercise is better than watching TV mindlessly.
6. Short “bouts” of exercise add up by contributing to the overall total tally of daily exercise. (New studies now support exercise even in less than 10 min bouts).
7. Schedule times to exercise. Use a calendar or smart phone that can help remind you to incorporate your fitness goals into your daily life.
8. Track your exercise. Because most people are competitive, tracking your exercise can provide motivation to exercise even more. Fitbits and technology like it can make walking more enjoyable.
9. Meet with a friend for a walk rather than to share a meal. Why do we surround ourselves with people and food all the time? Be more creative and instead, choose an activity that you both like and do it together.
10. Hold walking meetings at work or even with loved ones to discuss matters that you would otherwise have while sitting.
Remember to Choose exercise you enjoy. While many people find walking easy and enjoyable, you may wish to incorporate other forms of exercise in you lie, like dancing, playing tennis, yoga, pilates, etc. When we choose activities that we like, exercise doesn’t feel like work. It feels like play!
