The easiest way to stay active and healthy is simple: move. The more you move, the more calories you burn. Many times, we are bogged down by various obstructions and excuses not to exercise, such as lack of spare time, feeling exhausted after work, the gym is too far from the house. Perhaps, all we need is just a little creativity.
Instead of commuting with public transport, how about walking, running or cycling to your destination? Rather than socializing with friends over a meal, how about catching up over a run? If the gym is too far from your house, try working out at home with free apps such as Nike+ Training Club.
