6 Tips On Fitting Exercise Into Your Day

Living a busy life is not unusual for most people. Often it’s our busy life that we use as an excuse for not scheduling enough exercise into our day. While it may not be possible to find a couple of extra hours in your day to get fit, it does not have to prevent you from getting any exercise. Here are 6 ways to work some exercise into your hectic schedule.

  1. Wake Up Earlier

Waking up early to exercise might seem like an insurmountable task! But, if you start gradually by waking up five to fifteen minutes earlier than normal to exercise, it soon will become apart of your daily routine.

  1. Use You Lunch Hour

Exercising during your lunch hour can be a perfect time for those of you that waking up earlier just doesn’t work! You can take a quick walk or bike ride. You can even walk to and from your lunch destination, or eat while working and devote your entire break to fitness.

  1. Park Farther Away

Instead of spending that extra five minutes driving around a parking lot looking for a close spot, park farther away. Use this added five minutes to walk. The health benefits from adding a few extra steps in your daily life can be significant!

  1. Ride Your Bike

Riding your bike to work or for local errands is a great way to go green, save money and get fit all in at once.

  1. Take The Stairs

If you work in a large office building with multiple floors, taking the stairs can be an easy way to add more exercise into your day.

  1. Exercise with your kids

If you generally sit and read or are on your phone when you take your kids to the park, you are missing out on an exercise opportunity. Instead of sitting while your children are playing, join them! Play tag, run around or swing with them for example.

Firefighters, Wet Wipes and Cancer

 

Recently, the media has reported about the increase incidence of firefighters and cancer, in particular skin cancer. These reports target soot as a carcinogenic agent. Although firefighters wear protective clothing when battle fires, soot has been shown to enter gaps in the clothing and thus reaching various parts of the skin.

There have also been reports that “wet wipes” can be a way to remove this soot from the skin. With that said, one of our competitors have jumped on this marketing bandwagon to promote their pre-moistened towelette brands to service the firefighters in this country. In doing so, they have come very close to implying that their brand can prevent cancer by using their wipes. In addition, they attempt to down grade other wet wipe brands in stating that only their specific wipe formulation can help firefighters remove the carcinogenic soot from their skin. When in fact, any pre-moistened wipe can remove soot. Unfortunately, Body Wipe Company’s Paper Shower has been mentioned as one of these brands, but we have never made this claim, nor marketed directly to firefighters. In fact, each time that we have been approached by various fire departments across this country, we have been adamant in explaining that although our wipes will remove soot from the skin, there is absolutely no scientific correlation to a possible reduction in cancer among firefighters from using our wipes.

When it comes to the actual proof that wet wipes can reduce or prevent cancer, randomized clinical trials need to be performed to assess various wet wipes vs. other possible remedies and then scientifically evaluate these products to determine if in fact they do prevent or reduce cancer among the US firefighter population. Until such clinical research has been reported in the literature, the wet wipe “cancer prevention or reduction” claims by removing soot from the skin is just anecdotal.

The Healthy Perks of Exercising 30 Minutes Per Day

 

In addition to temporarily losing a few pounds, starting and maintaining a regular exercise routine can be an effective way to ward off certain physical and mental issues. Just 30 minutes a day spent being physically active can bring about impressive results within a relatively short amount of time.

Losing weight may be the most popular reason many people begin an exercise regimen. Depending on a person’s weight and the intensity of the workout, approximately 90 to 360 calories can be burned in a single 30-minute workout. At half an hour a day, 5 times a week, the pounds can begin to melt away surprisingly quickly.

Exercising to prevent heart and cardiovascular disease is an excellent way to be proactive about personal health. Walking, running or doing a moderately intense workout for 30 minutes strengthens the heart muscle, lowering the risk of getting heart disease by nearly two times. Regularly exercising also raises HDL levels, the ‘good’ cholesterol, and lowers LDL levels, the ‘bad’ cholesterol. This can lower blood pressure, decreasing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

A 30 minute per day workout schedule can help to regulate your blood sugar and burn body fat, leading to a decreased chance of developing type 2 diabetes. If type 2 diabetes is already an issue, exercising can help keep the important blood glucose levels in the safe range.

Symptoms of depression and anxiety can ease during and after physical exercise. The body releases endorphins, a ‘feel-good’ chemical while exercising. Another positive aspect of having a regular exercise routine is that it’s something that can be started right away, without the need to make an appointment or drastically alter a day’s schedule. Just a 30-minute walk during lunch hour or after work can have a considerable healthy effect on the body and mind.
