When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, trying to lose or maintain weight and generally being healthier. It’s the simple things that make all the difference,  most actions can be done outside a gym or workout environment by making simple changes to your routine and habits. Taking the stairs is a great way to increase daily activity levels and it can be simpler still, such as parking your car! Yes parking your car.

Find excuses to be more active!

You drive into a busy supermarket and everyone likes to park as close as possible to the entrance of the shop, this normally involves people queuing for spaces, parking in tight spaces and consuming much time! Well, you probably noticed all the free parking spaces right at the bottom of the car park, furthest away from the shop, well let’s park there! This is simple right, but it really is the little things, a 50-meter walk there and back might not seem like much but get into the habit and it all adds up!

Parking your car really can make you healthier! Who would have thought! So I challenge you, pick the empty space a little further away and apart from driving your other half-mad, it’s a great step towards being more active.
