Every girl wants to look her best on her wedding day. Whether it be her hair, dress, jewelry or anything else, she simply wants everything to be nothing but perfect. But, ladies, it is not all about what you wear on your wedding day; you need to glow inside and out. And that can only be achieved by staying fit and healthy. Remember, with a confident attitude and fit body, you can rock your wedding look even with simple attire. However, we also know that today’s busy lifestyle hardly leaves the brides-to-be with any time to take care of their health. And hence, we have brought for you, some simple and amazing exercising ideas that you can practice even at your workplace.
#1. Walk while you talk.
As you have to plan everything for your wedding, there will be so many conversations that you will be having over the phone with various vendors, planners, stylists and many more. And, when you are having those long discussions over the phone, make sure you leave your comfortable bean bag or sofa, and walk when you talk. This can help you to lose hundreds of calories between today and your wedding day. So get up right now and start walking to see the big difference it will make on your big day!
#2. Make the exercise ball your chair.
Things around you are changing and being replaced by better options. So, why don’t you make some changes around you like replacing your regular chair with an exercise ball? It will give you better posture all day long and strengthen your core.
#3. Take the stairs.
Why not avoid the small elevator talks with colleagues and take stairs instead. It helps you burn a lot of fat, giving you slimmer and well-toned legs in just a few weeks. Take two steps up the stairs at a time if you only have a few days left before your wedding day.
#4. Have face-to-face conversations at the office.
Instead of calling your colleagues over the extension to get some information from them, walk over to their workstation to get it. And, whenever possible, try conversing in person with your superiors, colleagues or subordinates, instead of over email. This practice will help you to stay active and will prevent you from gaining extra weight as well.
#5. Be the under-desk leg raiser.
This simple exercise will help you to remove all the stress out of your body. Here is how to do it. Sit on your office chair with your back straight, chest out and shoulders down. Now, raise one of your legs and hold it straight for 10 seconds. After this, lower your leg and follow the same process with the other one. Repeat this 10 to 15 times, and you will see a change in just a few days. You will see the backache and stiffness vanishing away from your body in no time! For a better understanding of how to do this exercise, watch the video below:
#6. Do a few chair squats.
Every time you get up from your chair, make sure you do a few squats before you sit down. Now, you must be wondering how you can do this at the office without looking awkward! Well, let us tell you a very simple yet clever trick. Get up from your chair and stand straight. Now, bend down and adjust the height of your chair, hold for 10 seconds and stand again. Five repetitions will make you lose some real weight. You can even try dropping some paper or a pen to do this exercise discreetly.
#7. Be the last person to sit.
Agreed, it is not a rigorous form of exercising. But standing helps you to lose much more weight than you would gain while sitting. When you sit for many hours, you put yourself at a greater risk of increased inflammation and insulin levels. So never miss a chance to stand. Always be the last person to sit and the first one to stand — this will help you to shed some extra calories without putting in much effort.
#8. Sculpt your calves while printing.
Did your manager ask you to get the 100-page document printed before the presentation? Well, as you do so, do not just stand beside the printer and watch it doing its job. Instead, use that time to shape your calves. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, rise up till you are standing on your toes, stay like that for a few seconds, and then get back on your feet. Repeat this 10 to 15 times or until the task is over. When you become a pro at this, try it on one leg at a time.
You can practice all these while you are at the office without paying a single buck or giving up any extra time. This will give you a fitter body and a lot of confidence to totally rock your wedding day look. So, ladies, do not wait! Just get started and get set to look naturally radiant on your wedding day.
