Simple Ways to Build Exercise Into Your Daily Routine

Being creative about your physical activity plans and trying new forms of exercise can keep you motivated. Here are some ideas to help you stay active this spring and summer.

Spring:

  • As the temperatures start to get warm, get your garden ready for spring and summer.
  • A bike ride is a great way to enjoy the warmer temperatures.
  • Anything can be fun with upbeat music, including spring cleaning!

Summer:

  • Swim laps for a refreshing way to exercise.
  • Walk up and down stairs in your home or an air-conditioned space for a cool way to beat the heat.
  • Make your own weights with water bottles or other household items.
