How to squeeze in exercise on a full schedule

We all know how important exercise is.
It is recommended to exercise for at least 30 minutes every day.
And yet, we often find the same excuse: I just don't have time.
Here are ways of creative exercising that I've found on my 100 days of daily exercise.

1. Dance your way through the day 

I am lucky that I have this brilliant tv that has youtube on it. On youtube there are great videos from Refit dance fitness and Shine dance fitness. I will do a few of these videos and dance along to the telly.
If you don't have tv, easy:  Just turn up that music on your phone and dance to your favourite songs. Maybe even when you are cleaning. Exercise bonus!
And it is incredible for a good mood too.

2. Take a walk on your lunch break

If you are in an office job like me, you know you are going to have to make a bit more effort to squeeze in those 30 minutes. So, why not take a walk when you are eating your healthy packed lunch? Maybe you can even nudge some coworkers to join you for company.

3. Clean 

I don't know how about you, but cleaning is not one of my favourites. Though it needs to happen anyway. And maybe you feel better when you know that cleaning is actually a pretty good way to exercise. Think about it: for a througout clean you get to use your whole body. So vacuum, scrub, wash and know that you are not only doing something nice for your house, but also for your body.

4. A quick work out to start or end your day

There's plenty of great apps that will provide you with programs that you can do in 10 minutes. Really, don't tell me you don't have 10 minutes to spare to start out your day or even end your day with. These are usually high intensity work outs that focus on your stamina. Jumping jacks baby!

5. Bike

This is a very dutch thing and may not be everyone's cookie, but how about you bike to your destination? This is also another great way to ensure that you get your exercise in. It helped my man to actually lose a couple of pounds. And it's practical to the point where you actually have a way of transportation.

Do you have great ways to squeeze in your exercise that I missed mentioning?
