Medical practitioners emphasize daily on the importance of physical exercise for healthy living. We all know how important exercise is but majority of Kenyans don't have time to attend gym sessions due to daily's tight schedules. They wake up at 5 am for work and leave workplace at 5 pm not to mention that plenty of time is wasted in traffic jams. Weekends are packed with activities like weddings, church seminars and so on making the available time for exercise thinner and thinner. Simple exercise is what you need for that healthy lifestyle. Place the following activities in your activities and you will be giving your body physical exercise to burn off excessive fats and calories.

1. Walking. This is the simplest of all exercise activities. Make sure your walk everyday instead of using means of transport like 'matatu' or motorbikes. If you have a personal car make sure you dedicate some days for walking to and from work. Walking for about 2 kilometers everyday can work magic for you because you will burn lots of calories and fats. On the other hand you will also save fuel money. While at work you can walk to the restaurant during lunch time instead of using your vehicle.

2. Use the stairs instead of elevators. If you take the stairs from ground floor to third floor or above you will be gasping for oxygen the moment you reach your destination. This exercise is quite good for your health and should be observed daily if you aspire to keep fit.

3. Ride a bicycle to work and back. It does not matter what your social economic class is, just ride a bike to and from work when the weather is favorable. The bike will also enable you escape the torture of traffic jams.

There you have

it, it is not a must that you enroll in a gym sessions to keep fit, customizing your lifestyle can work for you.
