Less Stress For Free

October 4th, 2009 at 06:50 pm

I've noticed that I really need to exercise daily to help my stress levels. It makes a HUGE difference.

I usually try to get to the gym on the days the girls are in school. I'm hit and miss on the weekends. I didn't do anything yesterday because my husband was working. He is working again today and i really needed a workout. So what to do?

We made our own workout here at home. We had six stations which we hit for a minute each. Every minute we changed stations for 30 minutes. Our stations included: sit ups, push ups, trampoline, jumping jacks, stairs and a hand weight station. We worked up a sweat and I feel much better! Some stations needed revision as we went along...because I can't do push ups for a minute!! I did try, but as a result I can barely type this. Smile

I'm thrilled to have exercised and involved the kids. Even better it was free!

    Great idea. I have not been the best exercise example for my kids. This is a great way to get everyone involved.

    I primarily exercise to relieve stress. I can not function without exercise!!!

    & yes, it can be very free. Big Grin Yay!

    I guess I should go get on my treadmill that sits in front of our big screen TV......I have no motivation. But I am quite impressed with you!

    The stations sound great! If you know you'll be at home instead of the gym, you could always borrow workout dvds from the library. Pretty frugal and you get to try different types of workouts Smile

    That's a fantastic idea! I used to do something similar with my students for phys ed sometimes - they always seemed to love it. Smile
