How you do maintain a healthy lifestyle when you're busy? In our last post we introduced the concept of “exercise snacking” – the idea that exercising in frequent, short bursts can be just as effective as more traditional exercise methods. In this post we’ll take it a step further by discussing HOW to squeeze in daily workouts when you’re busy.
A great place to start is to consider your routine. Is it easier to workout before starting your work day, during the day, or after work? Finding the right time for a workout (no matter the length) will help you turn it into a daily habit. You don’t have to invest in expensive equipment or devote endless time at the gym. Rejuv At Work offers a plethora of classes and webinars online! Simply set aside an area in your home or office and designate a specific time.
The next key to success is covered in our virtual Exercise for Busy Bodies webinar, where we study motivation as the driving force behind your fitness goals. German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche famously said, “He or she who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” In other words, understanding the “why” behind what you want will help you to keep your eye on the prize even when the busyness of life gets in the way.
Rejuv At Work’s Exercise for Busy Bodies examines the following topics:
· What do you want?
· Why do you want it?
· How will you get it?
· Quick workouts on the go
· Online workouts
In summary, we know that taking care of our personal health means exercising, eating well and getting good sleep. Consider making our virtual Exercise for Busy Bodies webinar available to your employees. In the next two posts we’ll cover eating habits and how to achieve better sleep. Stay tuned for more!
