Does work consume your waking hours nearly 7 days of the week? Do you crave some form of exercise and a workout regime to stay fit and feel good about yourself?
Here is the guide to help you deal with this better:
The Morning Jog
However hard you may work, and however strenuous your work routine may be, not being able to spare half an hour every morning for a run is simply a lame excuse. If you cannot clock half an hour, do fifteen or twenty minutes at least. Not only will this help you keep your body fit, it will help you stay energized throughout the day too.
The Way Up to Office
Is your office on the second floor? Or the fourth? Ok, the ninth? Take the stairs. If it is too many floors, try climbing the first few flights of stairs, to start with. Keep increasing the number every few days. Tell yourself the elevator will make you feel claustrophobic, or waste more time, or simply be a less healthy option! If you are cursed with a ground floor office, take the stairs whenever you visit the mall, another office building with stairs or wherever else possible.
Weights in Office
Busy work schedules rarely leave time for workout sessions or gymming in the mornings or evenings. Carry a set of dumbbells and keep them in your office desk drawer. Take a few minutes off at set times in the day and do your weights.
Some of you may be blessed with a gym, pool or other facilities in your work area itself. Make full use of them! Is there a swimming pool in or around your workplace? Carry your swimming gear along with you! Have a gym in the same compound. Life couldn’t have been easier!
If some or none of the above is possible, practice a healthy routine at least. Eat your meals on time, especially dinner. Eat early and take a brisk walk post-dinner. When you start to feel this healthy option working for you, you will also realize the importance of eating a light last meal of the day.
Staying fit and feeling healthy come at a very low cost – a little bit of time from your busy schedule. However, the more you are able to ‘invest’ in them, the better will be the results you reap, after all! Stay healthy and stay happy!
