It’s crazy how easy it’s becoming to exercise on a daily basis. And that’s a good thing, because exercise is one of the few activities that can keep us from going crazy!
Here are a handful of easy exercises we’ve gathered from across the web that are popular methods of getting your body moving and your face smiling. Call ’em four easy exercises that are really hot right now.
1. Regular yoga
Yoga is so popular that there are many new forms of it, but the basic premise of yoga involves stretching, breathing, and meditating. There are several psychological benefits of yoga that are reported by the millions of people who do it, in addition to tons of physical advantages that come from stretching and movement of your body parts.
The best part is, you can do yoga in the comfort of your own home, to start!
2. Exercise biking
Time is of the essence for most people right now, and that’s why they’re buying exercise bikes in droves. Instead of wasting time and gas and money driving to the gym, paying for the membership, then having to shower there before going back home or onward to the office, people are eliminating the obstacles between themselves and the bike, by simply purchasing their own and exercising at home.
It’s appalling how many millions of people don’t walk hardly at all in the course of a day, so they’re not enjoying the basic health benefits of walking. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, go for a walk as often as you can.
Ideally you should do it outdoors, if you live in a place where the air quality is acceptable. There are also some incredible other benefits to being outside, whether it’s getting to socialize with your neighbors, or appreciating the beautiful nature that tends to go unnoticed when you drive or don’t get out at all.
4. Elliptical training
In addition to exercise bikes, many people are buying a new elliptical machine and putting it in their home. It’s a popular exercise at the gym, and that’s made the demand high for home units, which have become more affordable than ever.
Meanwhile, a membership at the gym and gasoline to drive there aren’t getting any cheaper, so the hot trend of exercising at home is making more sense than ever!
