    Good Article. I don’t know of a better way to deal with stress than through exercise. (Likewise, no idea why it would have to cost money to exercise).

    Exercise has done wonders for my stress and anxiety. I have incorporated a home gym into my home office! Starting by replacing my normal office chair with a big bouncy exercise ball, this keeps me moving all day and forces me to work on my balance constantly. Sometimes I even lay back and do a few sit-ups!

    I also got a few fitness TranerMats which are awesome! They make it so easy to get a quick workout, I just plop down and do a few exercises or stretches when I need a little brain break throughout the day. Having it right there is wonderful.

    You can be surprised how much you can save by filling up your evenings and weekends with exercise. I recently started jogging with my other half as an effort to get fit before christmas arrives and we’re saving a huge amount on the things we used to do…Cinema, meals out, going for drinks, shopping etc.

    It soon adds up!

    Bring your knees toward your chest until they are at a 90 degree angle.

    The stability ball will introduce an element of stability to the exercise that you wouldn’t normally get with the floor exercise.

    By using the stability ball it is possible to do all of this while watching television so that exercise can be performed without having any interference in your normal daily process.
