It is evidently clear from the discussion that by increasing physical activity, I would be able to reduce my blood sugar levels. I can generally engage in more activities daily by being more active, by engaging in aerobic exercises, by doing strength training, by stretching (Medic8, n. d). In order to become extra active, I can walk around the house and straighten furniture and toys; I can play with my kids; I can take the dog for a walk; I can change the channel of the TV by using manual controls, instead of the remote control; I can weed out my garden, clean the house, wash the car; I can also stretch out chores by not taking any shortcuts – instead by taking two trips instead of one; I can park further away from work or from the grocery store in order to allow me to walk the remaining distance; I can walk down every aisle at the grocery store; I can take the stairs instead of the elevator; walking instead of going for coffee breaks; and I can walk during lunch breaks while carrying out errands (Medic8, n. d).
As for aerobic exercise, I can do 30 minutes of aerobic exercise daily, 6 days a week. I can also split these 30 minutes into 10-minute sessions in order to increase physical activity in general (Medic8, n. d). I have to start off my aerobic exercise with warm-up activities in order to prevent injury. The paper states that aerobic exercise may include brisk walking, climbing stairs, and playing tennis. As far as strength training activities are concerned, I can do hand weights, elastic bands, weight machines a couple of times a week in order to build my muscle.
Through these muscle-strengthening activities, I can make daily chores easier and improve my balance and coordination in the process (Medic8, n. d). Finally, I can also do stretching exercises in order to improve my flexibility, decrease stress, and prevent soreness of the muscles with each activity.
