Body Gears: May Issue


Also, store the TV remotes in the most remote corner of your home so you at least get a little walk in before and after those binge-watching marathons. If wearable pedometers have taught us anything, it’s that a hundred extra steps here and there really do add up over the course of the day. 5. Use Fitness Benefits as an Incentive for Doing Chores Organizational experts know that 20 or 30 minutes of chores a day adds up to a cleaner, more organized space. You can certainly get a lot of toys into baskets during that time — not to mention mopping a floor or vacuuming the car. So if you remember that these dreaded tasks also burn calories and build up your core strength, it may help you feel more like tackling them.

7. Use an Innovative Physical Therapist The most obvious way physical therapy helps you stay active is by addressing the aches and pains that keep you from pursuing physical activities. In addition, physical therapy sessions are often a workout in and of themselves, which can help you meet your weekly cardio and strength goals. A physical therapist is also a great resource for giving you tips on tweaking your daily habits, going over what a normal day looks like for you and offering advice on how to make it a more active one. If chronic pain is an issue, your PT can show you specific moves that streamline the physical challenges. Use our online form to request an appointment and find out how physical therapy can help you live a pain-free and more active life.

6. Keep Equipment Handy Stash a yoga mat or 5-pound weights under your bed. Hang resistance bands on a hook in the kitchen. Keep a foam roll in the coat closet. That way, you’ll be far more likely to do a few reps while watching TV or waiting for the pasta to boil!
