Mission 24: Discover Micro-Exercise

Doing your weekly exercise from Mission 6: Choose You-Friendly Exercise is great – it raises your heart rate, gets you sweating, and can burn lots of calories.

But there are many ways you can get micro-exercise into your day, too. Some people call it incidental exercise. I like to think of it as lifestyle exercise – something that becomes part of your lifestyle.

Each nugget of micro-exercise can seem tiny – and it’s good to think that way, so you’ll feel inclined to do one every chance you get.

But the benefits aren’t so tiny. Not only do the weight-loss calories add up, but by taking opportunities to move, you form a habit of moving. Your path of least resistance changes to reflect that habit – and before you know it, you’ve become an active person!

In this mission we’ll look at heaps of ways you can add micro-exercise to your life. They don’t take a lot of effort, but they can add up to a lot of calories, taken together and over time.

So let’s start micro-exercising!

    My group benefits of daily micro-exercise:
    I prefer not to take the steps where I live because they are solid cement – what happens if you fall?
    Don’t use remotes – get up and press the buttons
    Go visit your neighbors, relatives, friends [who live in the area] rather than emailing them. Out of State friends or relatives visit every 5 years.
    Walk to your volunteer, appointments or shopping
    Wherever you go, move a little faster and more energetically. Walk with your head up no longer applies: if you’re walking make sure you watch the sidewalks because there are cracks and broken pieces and uneven
    Get off the train or bus one stop earlier and walk in good weather
    Park farther away in good weather when shopping or your appointments so you have to walk
    If at a dinner party, help to carry dishes to and from the table if your hostess wants help
    Put a stationary bike in front of the TV and move while you watch
    Do sit-ups or push-ups during ad breaks
    Saturday is ME time is your time and Sunday is the Sabbath day or a day to spend with family or friends
    Walk, cycle or run to the library, do errands, etc.
    Walk around the house while on the phone [phone must be cordless]
    Play a game outside with friends
    Take the dog for a walk or spend quality time with your pet
    If your single get up to get the food you want
    Clean your home twice a month; clean bathroom once a month; kitchen cleaned monthly if you
    do not cook
    If you do yard work take precautions for your health
    Walk around the neighborhood.
    Using a pedometer can help motivate you to take extra steps throughout your day.

    My group benefits of daily micro-exercise:
    Take the steps instead of the elevator with the exception of: if you’re walking with medical canes, crutches, walkers or in wheel chairs, etc. take the elevators.
    If you own property doing yardwork is a great exercise; planting gardens and flower gardens is also great exercise.
    Daily walking up and down your street; walking in the hallway; playing with your cat are great exercises. I have two people who walk a mire or more per day. Also you can walk in a mall before the stores open.
    We talked about pedometers. I’ve tried about 10 different ones and none of them worked for more than a month. At this point and time I think they are a waster of money. The exercise belt with the watch during exercise works great.
    To be a mover and a share would be to dance to your favorite TV Show or play your favorite music by DVD or radio.

    I have been walking farther now when I go to the shopping center now and I do take the stairs instead of elevators. I have been increasing my exercise time from 2 hours to close to 3 hours a day and really enjoying the walking:)
