Health Tip: Finding Time for Exercise

(HealthDay News) -- Caring for kids or preparing meals can interfere with finding time for exercise.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:

  • Develop a system with a friend or family member to swap babysitting time.
  • Include your kids in your exercise routine. Take a walk, hit the playground, dance, do aerobics or play tag.
  • Use home gym equipment, such as a stationary bike or tread mill.
  • Do some calisthenics or jump rope while kids are playing or napping.
  • Find time for exercise while kids are at school.
