Yes, it is true that your schedule starts at 9 in the morning and ends at 6 in the evening, total nine hours work. Accommodating a separate schedule for workout within this can be quite challenging. Here are a few tips that will tell you how to better utilize your time to stay fit.
Fitness Tips to stay fit and healthy:
Fitness tip 1: Instead of getting up at 7 in the morning, set alarm 45 minutes earlier and use these 45 minutes for physical activity. If you do this 3 times a week, it is enough to maintain physical fitness.
Fitness tip 2: You can do yoga in the morning. It requires only loose clothing, a mat and quiet place. You can buy a foldable treadmill so that you can work out as soon as you wake up.
Fitness tip 3: Assess whether business meetings require long hours. Do all the meetings need to be wined and dined? Can you cancel or shorten some of the meetings? In that time you can fit your fitness program into those slots. Instead of going with clients for lunch everyday of the week, schedule lunch meetings for 2 days and incorporate fitness schedule into remaining days.
Fitness tip 5: You can take a brisk walk inside or outside the office building. Lift dumbbells whenever you find time. A quick swim is also fine.
Fitness tip 6: At office place, you have to get up from your chair for every one hour and walk up and down the stairs. Whenever you feel the need to take break, walk upstairs or downstairs if you have anything to talk to your colleagues, but do not take lift. This way you have to force yourself to get from seat and walk for few minutes.
Fitness tip 7: Some offices are provided with portable exercise equipment like dumbbells, mats and elastic bands. You can also use that equipment if you have any at your table. This is a good practice to adopt by busy individuals with hectic schedules.
Fitness tip 8: When you join into your family activities, try to integrate exercises into these activities. If children are cycling, you can join in their cycling. If children are into skating or swimming lessons, you can accompany them. You can also join in the adult section or take a walk outside the recreation center waiting for your children.
Fitness tip 9: You can also burn calories while doing housework or while gardening. Take a short time for cleaning your house, vacuuming the windows and furniture, trimming rose bushes and trimming the lawn.
Fitness tip 10: Don’t park your car near the entrance. Park it far away from office entrance, entrance of shopping mall, entrance of bank, and grocery store. This way you will be doing a bit of exercise in the form of walking.
