How to Exercise while Working

How to Exercise while Working

Here we have more ways you can exercise while you work from home. These are more for if you are sitting down a lot. Which I have to admit does apply to me. Having done this research on how to exercise while working, I have to say that I intend to get an under desk exercise machine.

So we have looked at standing desks and their health benefits. I also brought a variety here for you to look at. There were also some that did both, sitting and standing.

We looked at office chairs and why it is important to have one that is comfortable.

I also did a post on treadmill desks which are really gaining in popularity in recent years.

Good reasons to get one!

We all know that sitting at a desk all day is not good for our health. A sedentary lifestyle can mean a slower metabolism, obesity and even possible heart disease amongst other things. So anything that helps you get exercise while you work has to be good, don’t you think?

An under desk exercise bike will keep legs moving and increase blood flow. It will gradually strengthen your muscles as you continue and become more proficient with it. Some allow an increase in resistance to help strengthen the legs further.

Then of course exercise helps to increase the metabolism and burn off the food to some degree, so can also help to stay fitter and lose weight.

As you are sitting, there won’t be a lot of pressure on the joints, which is an added bonus for many. Low impact exercise helps to strengthen and improve mobility especially for those with arthritis.

Improve Mental Health

Lack of movement during the day can leave a person feeling sluggish and tired but still end up tossing and turning for ages before dropping off.

Exercise is brilliant for improving mental health as well as physical health. Being more active on a regular basis helps to improve sleep. This in turn also has a good impact upon mental health. Less tired and more active means you feel more upbeat and therefore happier.

It is better still to be out in nature of course but something like these are ideal when you are tied to a desk. Not literally of course!

What do I think?

Personally, I like them all and I think they are a brilliant idea. I have different priced ones here, just to show a small sample of what’s available. I could put loads more on but they tend to be very similar.

I intend to get one myself when I can make up my mind about what to get. I cannot decide whether it would be more comfortable to have the stepper type or the cycle type.

Reviews are mixed as always, with some loving the one they bought and others not happy for various reasons. I have noticed this on pretty much most things, whatever you buy. People are different with different requirements.

I think the style of anything is a personal choice.  While a load of bad reviews will put me off an item, the usual mixed reviews won’t, depending on what is said of course.

What do you think? A good idea or not?

How to get Cheap Legitimate Facebook Page Likes

How to get Cheap Legitimate Facebook Page Likes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OURItsUfL0
This video and post is about how to get cheap legitimate Facebook page likes via advertising. Buying likes is never a good option.

From Paul Murphy all about Facebook advertising.

A shortened version of the video:

When you advertise on Facebook you get into a bidding war with anyone else who’s vying for that space on Facebook. You need a really good relevancy score for your bid price to come down, so if you’ve built that trust with Facebook then what it does is it  decides that you’re legitimate. That you’ve got all these things in place and one of them specifically I’m going to show you in a minute and then when you’ve done that you will get your advertising at a lower cost and Facebook will favour you above other  advertisers because a lot of people are just kind of dipping into the platform and trying to get advertise but don’t really know what they’re doing.

Building your Page

What you can do is you can build up your page once you have created a new page on Facebook. That is straightforward and easy enough to do.

You’ll obviously start with no likes and unless people know where to find you it’s hard to get people interested in your page. This is where the ads come in. Some people have paid for likes in the past but it is just a waste of money, I assume that sort of thing is still about but there are 2 reasons not to do it.

  • 1) They aren’t real people which means they won’t interact with your page.
  • 2) You can get your page and ad account banned from Facebook. Definitely not what you want.

You will pay more at first for your adverts until you can show you are legitimate.

Showing the Ad campaign

Paul shows the results of his ad campaign that has yet to run a full dayHow to get Cheap Legitimate Facebook Page Likes

I’ll show you exactly how this works so if you’ve not created ads before this is where you start.

Your custom audience you would leave blank and then you would put in worldwide for location.  Apparently it’s really expensive to advertise in California, so its a good idea to exclude that region., so apart from that you can include everywhere else.

So you just advertise to the whole world because obviously, you’re just building social proof, you’re not actually trying to get customers. So the cheaper the advert the better and the cheapest demographic to advertise to is aged 13 to 24 but its better to go for 18 upwards because if anything of a vaguely adult nature appears on the page and they’ll ban your account.

So make sure that you’re choosing over 18 and you’ll still get a good rate. If you just put it in ‘LOVE’ as an interest, this will work well. It’s got to be really general, something with a massive niche or just don’t put anything.

When you first go to your campaign level,

you need to select engagement. You’ll have a selection of lots of different ways you can actually choose but you need to select engagement. That bit was skipped because I’d already created the ad I’ve shown you.

So you select ‘Engagement’ and as you can see on the left hand side, you’ve got all of the three stages.

The campaign is always your objective, your ad set is always your targeting and then your ad is obviously how you create your advert. On this one I’m just going to put a dollar/pound because I don’t really want to spend much money.

I’m going to delete this straightaway but again you can put what you want. Now for thirteen dollars, I’ve got five thousand page likes, so if you spend $20 you’re probably going to be looking at somewhere between six – seven – eight thousand page likes, maybe more.

I recommend somewhere around 5,000 page likes is perfectly good. You’re literally just asking for a page like so you can do that on any network really, that’s absolutely fine and that’s it really.

Pictures

For images, all you need to do is go to Pixabay and there are royalty free which you can use for advertising on Facebook. Facebook has their own images as well and their own royalty free music too, if you want to put music on ads. On Pixabay, put in something short but relevant but be careful your image is not text heavy because Facebook doesn’t like that and they’ll charge you a premium for that.How to get Cheap Legitimate Facebook Page Likes

So then you would upload your image and then you try to inspire them to like the page with something simple. If you’ve got a pixel installed it’s good to get data so you can leave that ticked and then you would then go and confirm.

What next?

When you come to connections just exclude anyone who likes your page obviously, you don’t want to waste money advertising to people who’ve already liked your page. We want all genders and languages then obviously you edit to placements just to be the FEED. Facebook always puts automatic placements on but you don’t really want that to be honest because it’s going to put it absolutely everywhere and you’ve got no control over where it’s sending your traffic.

Conclusion from me

This does work because I used it on a brand new page and only did it for a week yet gained 1,250 followers, not bad considering the page only had 2 posts on it and a website link.

It’s a good way to get your page more followers or a brand new page up and running.

With the way Facebook has constrained the reach of small businesses in recent years as well as increasing the cost of advertising, anything that helps at a lower cost has to be good in my book.
