How to Stay Fit and Healthy in an Increasingly Busy World

One of the most positive steps you can take in your life is to incorporate some form of regular exercise into your daily routine. If you have a relatively free schedule, and you don’t have a million to-do’s every day, this can be easy. For very busy people, not so much.

That doesn’t let any of us off the hook. Most people can fit a little exercise into their day if they follow a few key guidelines.

Choose an Activity You Enjoy

Before you even look at your schedule, make sure you enjoy whatever it is you choose to do. If you are not a fan of running, for example, you won’t be very motivated to find time in your schedule to do it even though you know it’s good for you. Make a list of things you enjoy doing.

Exercise Efficiently

If you like resistance training, incorporate compound exercises into your routine. Compound exercises are moves that utilize more than one joint (like squats, lunges, and dips). They work out more than one muscle group at a time.

Make a Schedule — and Stick to it

It’s a lot easier to find time in your day to exercise if you schedule specific times during which you’ll add an activity. A busy schedule is often due to having a lot of commitments, but you can also be busy by going about your day in a way that’s inefficient – even if the number of tasks you have to complete is low.

The more intense your workout, the more you’ll sweat. Nothing beats a shower after a session of vigorous exercise. However, life has a tendency to change without warning – especially if you live an already busy life.

Whatever you choose as your go-to exercise, make Detour Wipes a part of your routine. Detour Wipes are heavy-duty, hypoallergenic, paraben and alcohol-free, unscented wipes. Use them to get you clean when a hot shower isn’t immediately available. Whether you’re working out at home or at the gym, Detour Wipes will not only refresh, they’ll get you clean.
