Tips for Exercising When You Have Diabetes

If you have type 2 diabetes, it can be challenging to find a workout plan that works. However, things are easier once you figure out what challenges you have. Here are some tips for working out when you have diabetes that can help you to get in shape and maintain your routine.

Start With Quick Workouts

As long as you get at least 30 minutes of exercise everyday, doing workouts briefly several times per day is okay. The key is to get up and start moving.

Focus on Being Active

Instead of worrying about specific workouts, just start with a normal activity to increase your physical activity levels, such as walking or climbing the stairs. However, you should not be relying on housework for your exercise. Many people overestimate the amount of energy that they put into housework and it is not as good of a source of exercise as they think.

Purchase a Pedometer

A pedometer can help you to increase the amount of activity that you do by as much as 27% according to a study done by researchers at Stanford University in 2007. Setting goals for yourself to achieve everyday can help you to lose more weight.
