Now that Seattle has fully re-opened and it’s summer, it’s a good time to take advantage of working out outside, and of course indoors too! For most people, working out is a chore, another thing that needs to be checked off their to-do list, and is usually at the bottom of it.
During the summer I switch up my routine from being so regiment to playful. Think of working out as the equivalent to recess for adults! What I love the most about exercising is incorporating simple workout routines throughout my day. For example, when it’s laundry day I’ll do 10 squats in between transferring laundry from the washer to the dryer or when I’m at the office, I’ll do push-ups for every 50 emails I go through in my inbox. It may seem silly, but by incorporating small amounts of movement in between tasks helps alleviate stress and gets that once mundane task crossed off your to-do list! Lastly, don’t forget to drink plenty of water too.
