Who does not want to be healthy? Nevertheless, where is the time to do daily dose of exercise amidst the busy schedule. Rushing to office, managing house, looking after kids and taking care of elderly person is really challenging and to find time of oneself is close to impossible. Twenty-four hours seem to be a less time! Everyone yearns for an extra hour in a day for doing exercise and for taking care of health. Not possible!!
What is achievable is to find time somewhere in between the hectic daily routine. But where to fit this schedule? I can’t wake up early in the morning as I wake up twice or thrice at night to attend to my mother-in law who is diabetic, blind (lost her eye sight due to diabetes) and kidney patient. I can’t do the exercise while watching T.V. as my child is studying and he finds it disturbing. I can’t even think of doing it in kitchen while cooking as it is bit congested and moreover I and my husband both cook together with no space left for movements in exercise. I can’t even think of going in a park or joining class as my mother-in-law needs my constant care. Above all I am lazy to do exercises, yoga or any physical work; maybe that is the reason my mind is finding so many excuses for not doing exercise regularly.
In the evening, my husband manages home, I go to market to buy vegetables, fruits and other grocery items. As we stay on fourteenth floor, I take a lift to get down. One day, while I was waiting for the lift, I came across this video.
I loved the idea of two minutes exercise for whole body. The lift door opened and I got into it. I couldn’t resist myself from trying this exercise. Surprisingly after that it become my daily routine to do two minutes exercise in the lift. A funny but a healthy way to live life!
Mark Twain has truly said that the only way to keep your health is to eat what you do’nt want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not. For #ApneTareekeSeHealthy I am eating lots of salad (to reduce my weight) which I hate to eat, I am drinking litres of milk (to keep my bones strong) which I do not relish and I am doing my daily dose of exercise in the lift (to keep fit and to save time) which I am not fond of. Now, I am happy and contented as I changed my life by making small changes.
