1. Walking - We all know that exercise plays a crucial role in controlling blood sugar levels. But keep on walking. Is walking a waste of time? no, not really as doing something is always better than doing nothing. As you get fitter do increase your speed and intensity the get the most out of it.

4. Cycling - If cycling is more your style, hop on a bike and hit the road (or stay indoors with a stationary bike if that's more your scene). Cycling is a low-impact exercise that will keep your joints happy while you burn those calories. It's a win-win situation!

5. Aqua Walking - For a refreshing change of pace, dive into aqua walking. Take advantage of the water's buoyancy to ease the strain on your joints while enjoying a great workout. Aqua aerobics or a leisurely stroll in the water will have you feeling refreshed and revitalised.

7. Weight training - Building muscle mass through resistance exercises will not only help you burn more calories but also increase your body's demand for glucose. Get ready to feel stronger and more energised with each weightlifting session!

8. Calisthenics - Another fantastic option if you prefer a bodyweight workout. From pull-ups to squats, these movements use your own body as resistance, giving you a great full-body workout. And the best part? You can find endless variations online to keep things interesting and fun!

9. Yoga - Dive into the world of yoga and experience the incredible benefits it offers. Yoga poses target not only your muscles but also your organs and systems, bringing balance and harmony to your body.
