Today, people spend most of their time facing the computer monitor and doing work or surfing the Internet during their leisurely periods. People often complain that they’re too tired to do exercise when they get home or from the office. Working 9-5 is indeed a very tiring thing, but there are simple ways for people to get exercise. Follow these simple solutions.
1. Park a Few Meters From Your Office
Surely, you’ll find that you want to park near to your office or in your office building in itself to avoid hassles, but parking a bit farther away from your destination actually helps you get exercise. It won’t make much difference to you, but to your body it does. Walking helps the body burn more calories. It is estimated that you burn 10 calories as you walk a few meters from where you parked your car to your office and vice versa.
2. Take the Stairs

Taking the stairs helps your body energize and use energy to consume calories in your body. It can beat the parking lot advice by 20-25 calories as you’re pulling your own weight too.
3. Walk To Convenience Stores
Care for a quick cigarette but the convenience store is two blocks away? Don’t even think about using your car. Walk to the convenience store. It helps burn more calories the same idea as with parking your vehicle far from your office.
Taking the bus early means walking to the nearest bus station you find. Most of the time you’ll find buses or train carriages full of people especially during rush hour. The added rushes, the time you spend standing up during the commute and walking to your office doesn’t only save you money, it also allows your body to use more calories. Doing all these tips five days a week can help you burn around 10-20 pounds per month if you yourself can keep a good food diet!
