Extra-curricular activities can sometimes add to the craziness of the schedule, leaving the home fitness equipment lying around and collecting dust in one corner of the house.

If you cannot easily find time to follow a proper fitness routine, you can still work out without using any fitness equipment.

Here are some quick and easy ways to keep your body healthy and fit all year.

Use your Time Alone

Make a list of 5-minute activities that will keep you occupied and exert physical effort when you are alone at home. Climbing the stairs up and down, stretching, running to and from the house, gardening, watering the plants, laundering the clothes, washing the dishes, and a slew of other activities can count. You can go to a park and walk around to get some fresh air. The good news is that it not only achieves your daily calorie burn goal but also allows you to complete household chores at the same time.
