How to make indoor exercise work

It can be a bit tricky to exercise indoors. You may have to deal with issues with space and distractions. I have dealt with all of these and I know how hard it can be to get motivated enough to exercise every day but once there’s a will, there is a way. You will need a lot of persistence and determination to exercise indoors. The trick is to keep at it on a daily basis until it becomes second nature. I exercise in the mornings for about 30 minutes. My weekly target is to exercise for about 150 minutes a week and that includes walking, running, cycling, gardening, doing chores, and the likes. 150 minutes sounds like a lot but it is doable when you exercise for around 30 minutes on a daily basis.

I create my own workout session

When it comes to indoor exercise, I like to just go with the flow and do my own thing. Half the time, I find guided fitness videos do not really inspire me, so I have had to create my own workout moves that keep me inspired and get me to exercise every day. I usually start with stretches, yoga, dancing, and different moves.

The benefits of exercising indoors

Here are some of the amazing benefits of exercising indoors –

You don’t have to deal with the gyms

I have never been into gyms. There are always overcrowded and with the current state of things, I cannot imagine working out in a gym now. So being able to work out from the comfort of my home is a blessing. Plus you don’t have to pay for the pricey gym membership.

You can get the best of both worlds – indoor and outdoor

Exercising at home doesn’t mean you have to be indoors. If you take the workout outside and get the best of both worlds. This is a great idea, especially in the summer months.

You have a dedicated space for workout

You don’t have to worry about sharing your workout space with complete strangers, and spending minutes wiping every equipment.

You can go at your pace

When you work out on your own, indoors and outdoors, you don’t have to keep up with anyone else. You can work out at your pace.

At the end of the day, it makes sense to do what is best for you. We are different and so are our needs. There is no one rule that fits everyone’s fitness needs. You have to play around with different ways of getting your workout done to find the best way for you.

This is a charity very close to my heart as it supports deprived women and children in Africa. With the current state of affairs all over the world. these women and children are even more vulnerable, which is why the charity needs our support more than ever. Women and Children First are working very hard to ensure people are aware of the importance of handwashing, social distancing, and wearing masks to mitigate the risks of the disease.

The vast majority of us engage with compulsory education. But when it comes to the age of leaving school, many skip the opportunity for higher education and will start working straight away. This is fine for many of us. There are plenty of industries out there that don’t require degrees, where you can start from the bottom and work your way up. But later down the line, you may find that you grow interested in pursuing a role that does require qualifications, or where qualifications could significantly increase your chances of getting your foot in the door. Here are a few pieces of information that can help to give you the confidence to pursue this venture, as well as guide you in the right direction!

You’re Never Too Old for Higher Education

Most of us associate higher education with people who are just leaving compulsory education and who are taking the next steps of our journey. We think that students are aged between 18 and their early 20s. Of course, many students do fall within this age category. But it’s important to remember that this isn’t the only group who can attend university or college. Instead, universities and colleges are open to anyone who’s interested in learning or who wants to add a specific qualification to their resume. Every institution has plenty of mature students who have started their education once they’ve passed the age of 21 and these students play just as important and valuable a role to universities as any students younger than 21.

A Return to Higher Education Can Completely Change Your Career Path

Pursuing an undergraduate degree or any other course being offered by a university provides you with a great opportunity to alter your career path. If you’re already within a job and simply don’t enjoy it anymore and want to try something else, or if you’ve always wanted to do something but have never had the confidence, a qualification like a degree on your CV or resume could open the door to the career you’ve been dreaming of. Alternatively, it can help you to progress along the career path you’re already on. If you’re hoping for a promotion or want to advance into a role that requires more expertise or responsibility, completing a degree is a good way to get the ball rolling in the right direction. Whether that’s an undergrad degree from CHC Christian Heritage College or a complementary master’s degree from a traditional Ivy League or red brick institution.

Choosing the Right Course

Of course, any form of higher education comes with a high price tag attached. You’re likely to have to pay a large sum upfront for the course, or you’ll have to take out a loan or apply to scholarships and grants to cover the costs. You’re obviously going to want to choose a course that works for you in order to enjoy your experience, in order to gain the right qualification with a good grade and in order to get the career path you’re planning started off on the right foot. There are so many options out there. From full-time courses to part-time courses, online courses, and more! Check league tables, browse reviews, and take your time to find the right one to suit your needs and preferences.

These are just a few tips and tricks that can help to get you off to uni. Hopefully, some will help!
