5 EASY workouts to energise you when you’re feeling tired

1. Cardio

Going for a quick walk or run is a great way to boost your energy. Even just 10-15 minutes offers many health benefits. Walking reduces your risk of heart disease, improves brain function, increases mindfulness, reduces depression and best of all it burns calories.

2. Yoga or mindful breathing

Yoga has many benefits for the mind and the body. Just a few minutes a day can help improve your mindfulness, relax your brain and improve your exercise stamina. Plus it doesn’t feel like you are working out. Bonus!

You can find our Mind, Body, Breathe exercises came out in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.

3. Squats and lunges

These exercises focus on toning and strengthening the lower body. Squats and lunges burn fat, strengthen your core and are practical to sneak into your everyday activities! Lunges while vacuuming, squats while hanging washing or waiting for the kettle to boil.

Or you can try adding the free Healthy Mummy Butt & Thigh Challenge into your day.

4. HIIT

Have you tried the Tabata workouts on The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app?

These are HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts that last for 4 minutes and really get the blood pumping and leave you feeling energised and wanting to do more! Choose one or more depending on how much time you have. You can even squeeze them whenever you have a spare few minutes throughout the day.

5. Jumping Jacks, burpees and planks

You could also alternate with burpees or planks for each ad break. These exercises are great to do anywhere, any time and the benefits are endless!
