8 Wicked Ways to Be More Active ...


More Active lifestyles and daily routines is something everyone needs, especially these days. Being more active is something that many of us resolve to do as a new year begins. These days, we tend to lead sedentary lives, with jobs that involve sitting at a computer and much of our leisure time spent sitting down as well. So what can we do to incorporate more physical activity into our lives – and enjoy it as well? Here are some wicked ways to be more active

1. Skate

Skating is a really fun activity.

In winter there are often temporary ice rinks, or you may live near a permanent rink.

Plus you can buy a pair of inline skates for use all year round.

Don't forget to buy some elbow and knee pads as well!

2. Walkies!

Take your canine buddy for a run in the park, throw a ball around and generally have as much fun as he does.

It's a great way to be more active – if you don't have a dog of your own, borrow a neighbour's or volunteer to give the dogs at a rescue centre a much-needed walk.

3. Fun with Friends

No, not that kind of fun.

Just how friendly are you with your friends?

I mean do something like have an impromptu ball game in the park.

Exercise is a lot more enjoyable if you can share it, as you encourage each other, and get caught up in the game.

4. Dancing Queen

Dancing is great fun and you don't have to be good at it.

If you're shy, dance around at home;

if you're not, go to a class or a club.

Salsa classes, for example, are very popular, and as well as being more active you'll meet new people.

5. Play with Kids

It's often said that today's kids are far less active than we were in our childhood.

So get out there and play with your kids – you'll both benefit!

Playing in the garden or in the park gives you all a chance to get active and have fun as a family.
