If you want to start exercising more to improve diabetic health but have been leading a fairly sedentary lifestyle, some forms of exercise may feel too vigorous to start with. Here are some great exercises to ease you into an active lifestyle. The best part is, you can do them around the house!


If you aren’t quite ready to take up running, brisk walking is a wonderful form of sustained exercise that can get the heart rate up and the blood pumping. Try to set yourself walking goals. For instance, aim to increase your pace over a certain distance every week. For now, walking loops around your neighborhood can be beneficial! Climbing stairs is another great option that can be done within your own home if you have stairs!


Swimming is a fun form of exercise that many diabetic patients enjoy. You’ll likely notice more than just the cardiovascular benefits since swimming also helps with toning and strengthening muscles. If you have a pool at home or a public pool nearby, this is a great option!

Zumba or Dance Classes

Another fun aerobic option, Zumba and dance classes are sure to get your heart pumping. If you’re into lighthearted and fun exercise, Zumba is a fantastic choice and there are a ton of online tutorials available for you to get your dance in from your own living room!


Yoga is a moving meditation that eases your mind while strengthening the body. Yoga tends to be slightly more aerobic than Pilates and usually raises the heart rate. Studies have shown that yoga can reduce high blood sugar levels and help with blood sugar control.
