Below we’ll give you a few tips on how to beat your busy schedule and create time for yourself for a more fit and healthy life.
Workout in short busts
If you’re too busy, then it would be helpful to consider exercise as a big project, split it into smaller, easier to handle components. Once you integrate these short components become a daily habit, you won’t have to force yourself to exercise as it will become much easier. For example, you can do 10 push-ups after every 30 minutes throughout the day.
Another strategy you can employ is doing high-intensity exercises for a shorter period instead of low or medium intensity exercises for longer. In addition to saving you time, scientists have also found it to be the most effective method of exercising.
Home/office exercise equipment
An exercise bike or treadmill at home can be great in helping you achieve your fitness goals. You can hop on the bike as you watch TV or going through a job report. Depending on your office circumstances, you can also have one in the office where you can hop on every time you feel down.
Take Low carb diets
You have probably heard of the saying that a good body is made in the kitchen, not in the gym. Well, it is 100% right. Professional athletes despite working out regularly follow a strict diet that helps them stay fit and in shape. Therefore, if you also want to maintain or improve your fitness levels, watch what you eat. It is recommended you supply your body with field greens and proteins as these are not stored in the body, unlike carbs. Combining this strategy together with the exercises described above will go a long way in ensuring you stay healthy and fit even with your busy schedule.
Drink Lots of water
I could write a whole blog post on the importance of water and staying hydrated. From enabling the body to heal itself, helping in the circulation of blood and oxygen in the body to detoxification, water is essentially what keeps us alive. Health experts recommend that you drink 1 gallon of water per day which is equivalent to 8 glasses.
A busy schedule is something we cannot avoid but can only live with. Even though making money is important, we should not do so at the expense of our health and our bodies. Therefore, no matter how busy you are, take the initiative to find time for exercise using the strategies above and also adopt more healthy eating habits
