If you are busy or you don’t love to practice in the nearest gym, you can still practice simple exercises at home 10 minutes daily as a routine. Such exercises will improve your mental health, enhance your immune system, strengthen your muscles and heart, and help you lose weight.
The physical exercises can enhance your strength, endurance, balance, or flexibility or even all of them. The strength exercises- like using resistance band and lifting weight- will strengthen your muscles and organize the energy of your body. The endurance exercises- including mowing, jogging, digging, raking, and walking- can strengthen your heart and enhance your breathing rate improving your body’s fitness.
To keep your balance, especially when you become aged, you should practice balance exercises such as heel-to-toe walk, Tai Chi, or standing on one foot or flexibility exercises such as yoga, calf stretch, and shoulder and upper arm stretch for ten minutes daily from now on.
If you have a family or personal history for any disease, you should consult your healthcare provider to define the suitable activity level for your program. If you feel any irregular symptoms such as shortness of breath, pressure dizziness, or chest pain, talk directly to your health provider to define the defect. If you already have a medical condition, your doctor will certainly encourage you to practice similar exercises and physical activities under his supervision, especially if you suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, or heart diseases.
One of the simplest 10-minute home exercises is to sit with your back beside the edge of a durable chair and to bend your elbow to 90 degrees pushing back up for 10 consecutive times. Instead of sitting on the chair, try to keep your weight on your heels lean your chest forward, then bend your knees and tap without sitting. Repeat this exercise from 10 to 12 consecutive times to lose your thigh’s excessive weight.
To strengthen your back, you can lie on your back and place your hands behind your head drawing a shape of a butterfly with your elbows and knees, then lift your shoulders and chest and go back for 10 consecutive times. To activate most of your body parts, stand on your hands and knees and let your hands move away from your chest keeping your head, neck, back, and butt in one line, then press back up and down for 10 consecutive times.
Along with such 10-minutes exercises, you should increase your physical activities such as gardening, sweeping, shoveling snow, raking, doing housework, hiking, rolling, and even walking to keep your overall fitness.
