Stop Exercising and Start Moving

Absolutely love this article. It explains the difference in movement and exercise, then it lays out why simple movement is so important. Yet, largely forgotten by most of us. We’re human, we’re supposed to move. And not just for an hour at the gym 5 days a week. It even gives 5 simple ways to start moving. Here are some more:

  1. Don’t circle around the parking lot looking for the closest spot (especially at the gym – people who do this at the gym baffle me). Park at the back, where there’s a ton of open spots, your car is less likely to get dinged up, and you get a few extra steps.
  2. Screw the elevator, take the stairs.
  3. Drink a TON of water. You’ll be hydrated which is super important, and you’ll get up from your desk to go refill your cup to get out of sitting for hours on end at work.
  4. Take your lunch to work, eat at your desk, and on your lunch break walk around the parking lot.

Those are just a few. Point is, it’s simple if you make it a priority and understand the importance of movement. Hope you like the article.
