Everyone knows that they need to exercise. Not only does exercise help you lose weight and tone up your body, but exercise also elevates mood and provides a whole host of other benefits for those who do it regularly. But you already know that. If you're like most Americans who don't exercise regularly, you probably already know that those who don't say it's because they don't have the time. Use these tips to ensure that you fit in exercise when you can.
Imagine a world where you hit both your personal exercise goals and your living environment was spotlessly clean. This world can happen. Focus on getting more movement into your house cleaning tasks. Rake the leaves, if you must. Just make sure to lift them into a bag. While you're at it, rearrange those heavy pots underneath your sink. Your kitchen will thank you later.

Do you have a family member that was blessed with the gift of gab? Use this personality trait to your advantage. As you exercise, talk to this family member on Bluetooth. You'll be thankful that you're not wasting your Grey's Anatomy time to have this conversation and it will make the time go that much faster.
