8 Tips To Help Busy Mums Fit In Exercise

Go easy on yourself

Parenting requires a significant amount of time and energy. Realistically, you may not have as much time to exercise as you had before having children, and that's fine! Remember, doing something while you can is preferable to doing nothing.

Make the most of lunch breaks

Try exercising during lunch breaks if you work. No time for the gym? Starting with a 30-minute walk lunch is beneficial since it gets your body moving and boosts your heart rate.

Book an exercise class at the gym

Working out in fitness classes is ideal for busy parents. Most PureGym lessons are 30–45 minutes, so you can leave and get home quickly.

Go on a family walk or hike

Walks are sometimes disregarded, yet taking more steps each day can improve your mental and physical health and help you lose weight. 

Take part in a child-friendly workout at home

Create a family workout if you can't find time to exercise alone. A 15-20 minute workout will provide you and your kids the advantages of exercise without boredom.

Go on a family bike ride

A family bike ride is a wonderful opportunity to spend time together, enjoy the outdoors, and get lots of exercise all at the same time. If you have bikes, this is an excellent way to do all of these things.

Invest in some workout equipment

This idea may not be appropriate for everyone because it involves money and space, but if you have both, you might invest in some cardio equipment such as a stationary cycle, treadmill, or rowing machine and keep it in the same room as your TV.

Team up with another parent

Many parents want to workout but can't find time. Ask other parents if they want to partner up—maybe your kids do the same after-school activity.
