7 Easy Exercises To Stay Fit

We live in an age where most of us spend a considerable amount of time sitting in front of our laptops or computers. And you will not realise it now, but it will start to take a toll on your health gradually. I can’t stress enough how important it is to remain active in this environment. Exercising keeps your energy levels high and keeps you engaged, fresh, and happy throughout the day. Here are some of the easy exercises to stay fit you can do without doing much:

7 Easy Exercises To Stay Fit

Easy Exercises To Stay Fit


Have you ever noticed that whenever you are on a call and someone tells you to do something, you almost instantly do it without questioning? Even if it is to get something from the other end of the room. So why not put it to fair use? We all keep in touch with our friends and family through phone calls. So the next time you are talking to someone, start walking. Walk and talk. Start with short, paced walks and then gradually increase your speed.


Climbing Stairs

A lot of the time, we feel tired after climbing a few steps. We look for an AC room or wait eagerly for the lift to help you reach your destination floor. But why use an elevator? Start taking the stairs. It is a great way to exercise and maintain your stamina. Of course, if the desired floor is 8 or 13, don’t try this. But you can still use the stairs to get down. Try it once a day, and slowly you will build up the habit of using the stairs every day.




We sit in one position for hours and hours, doing our work or binge-watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for the 100th time. But that tenses up your muscles, making it difficult for you to move. So after every place and every hour, take a walk. Just get up and take a walk to the other side of the room. Or stand at your place and stretch your hands over your hands. You will instantly feel relief.

Here is a simple YouTube video of how you should stretch.

Everyone usually focuses on wanting a flat tummy or getting rid of belly fat. But what about the sides? You don’t pay attention to it. The sides are usually the first to appear and the last to disappear. Whenever you get time, just sit straight with your legs stretched and move to your sides, i.e., right and left. Just move your upper body while keeping your legs straight and your toes together. Do this 15-20 times, and slowly you will start to see the effect.

Here is one such video for your reference


We all have the back pains of an 80-year-old in our twenties. Lunges are a simple exercise that involves putting one leg forward and bending while keeping the other leg straight.

Here is one such video to show you how you can do lunges.

Neck Rotation

We all tend to sit in one place and stare at computers or phones for a long time. And in that process, your neck tends to get stuff, and it hurts to move. Try this simple exercise to ease the pain: slowly move your head from left to right and then back to the left. Do this 5–10 times, and you will start to see the effect.

Here is how you should do neck rotation exercises.


Everyone wants a toned body. Your abs and your belly are the most important parts, and they take time to get in shape. You cannot get a fit stomach just by sitting idle. You have to do exercises to get the desired results. Lie on your back on a flat surface and bend your knees. Try to raise your torso and get back while breathing in.

Here is how you should do abs.

Start taking little steps to take care of your body. It is the only thing that will stay with you throughout your life.

Are there any other simple exercises that should’ve made the list? Let me know in the comments section.

Great post! Climbing stairs is definitely a workout. I live on the top floor of my apartment building, and it doesn’t have an elevator. So it’s a mini workout when I got home from work.

This year I’ve started walking a lot more (rather than running) and it has been amazing for my mental and physical health 🙂

August 27, 2020 5:09 pm

This was my reminder to stand up and stretch! I often forget how useful and healing stretching is. Thanks!

Hey Aditi!
Thanks for writing this. I especially liked the part about stretching. Most days I don’t want to do yoga, but after I do…I feel so much better! This reminds me that even small changes can have a big impact.

Some great exercises here. Walking is a fabulous workout. And its important to work on core Ab muscles. Those are the posture muscles that keep our spines straight and healthy.

These suggestions are easy to do when you are busy and short on time. I need to remember to do what I can when I can. Thanks for the encouragement!

I am happy to have a dog, because of him, I am more active and do walking almost every day!
Without him, I would sit at my computer the whole day and be too lazy to move my butt.
Great that you added examples to activities! Thanks!

October 2, 2020 7:34 pm

I love all these recommendations! I am getting older and it is a good reminder that as an aging athlete, I do not have to go run 10 miles to be “fit.” It’s a mindset shift but an important one. Thanks for the tips.

October 4, 2020 1:54 am

I pretty much do all of these as a matter of course daily! It’s so good to get into a routine and a habit of taking these micro steps to self care!

Starting a walking and then a running habit is one of the best things that I did for my health. I have since starting doing a workout program, but agree walking is a great way to exercise.

I’m literally so lazy! I keep telling myself that when I have more time, I’ll do more exercise. Even during lockdown, I had more time than usual and I still didn’t do it. But these look so easy, I might give them a go! Thanks!

October 9, 2020 8:28 pm

Great tips. At times we tend to be so lazy to excersice. It’s always everyday I tell to myself ok tomorrow ? but it never happened. But I will surely give this a try.

Great point – if you miss a day of working out, then no worries. No makeup for it with a workout today!

October 29, 2020 7:57 pm

These are great ways to get in some physical activity daily. I am a very active person and go to the gym, but I always love getting in a daily walk while listening to a podcast as well. Thank you for sharing these ideas!

I loved this post. I have been trying to lose weight. I did some guilty eating today, but I’m doing my best to stick to a healthy diet with great exercise, and this post right here has given me a list of exercises that I never thought about doing before but I’m going to now. Awesome post and thank you!
