Staying fit while caregiving is not a nice-to-do – it’s a must-do. Fit caregivers not only fell better and stay healthier, but they also are able to perform their family caregiving with more energy and reliability. And while fitting in a workout is far from simple, these tips may help you figure out the best ways to fit in enough time for your own exercise:
AM Exercise. There are few distractions, and research shows morning exercisers are more likely to stick with it.
Add Gusto to Chores. Quicken the pace when you scrub the sink, or use a push mower to burn more calories.
Make TV Minutes Burn. Lift dumbbells, ride the stationary bike or walk a treadmill during favorite TV shows. Or just get moving during commercials!
Include Your Loved One. Play music and move. Get outdoors for a walk. Bring the dog too.
Peer Pressure. Join a walking or dance club or even a sports league where others depend on you to participate.
Active Fun. Plan activities and trips that require you to walk, like to a park or at a mall.
Be Prepared. Keep a comfortable pair of shoes and a jacket in your car, in case you see an opportunity for a few laps around the grocery store or hospital.
Pencil It In. Schedule time to do the exercise video, take the dog for a walk, or hike with a friend.
