You always have an excuse to give when it’s time for you to exercise, be it work, food, socializing, meetings etc. but it shouldn’t be that way, you should always make out time for keeping yourself fit. Your health should be your top priority. Everyone has one affair or the other to see to but most people still make still make out time. But we know it can seem difficult to make time for exercise when you’ve had a stressful 12 hour day at the office and all you want to do is sleep; we’ve all been there! So how do you find the time to fit exercise into even the busiest schedule, even when all you want to do is curl up and take a nap? We believe you’re never too busy to exercise, and these simple tips will help you fit exercise into your lifestyle, no matter how much you’re on-the-go.
Maintain your comfort exercise
One thing is sure, we always make out time for what we love because it’s easier and fun. Look for an exercise you love, something that doesn’t torture you. It could be jogging, push-ups, squats, or even dumbbells. Make achieving your fitness goals a lot easier by choosing exercise you love that fits into your lifestyle, and don’t be afraid to try something new!
For you to be efficient at something, you have to be dedicated towards it and that can only happen when it is accessible. Try workouts that need you heading out after a long day at work, so choose a workout that you can do anywhere, at any time. Workout DVDs are a great option that you can keep at home, but also consider palates, body-weight exercises, TRX, yoga and running. All of these require little equipment and can be done even after a late night at the office.
There’s no point starting an exercise regime if you’re not going to commit to it, so don’t fall into the “I’m too busy” trap. What’s worth doing is worth doing well, so treat your workout sessions with commitment because most times if you had to hang out with friends or even had a family emergency, you wouldn’t want to miss it, so why not do the same for your workout sessions. Working out should be a priority, so make a schedule and stick to it. If you’ve signed up for a class, make sure you go to it!
Challenging yourself goes a long way in motivating you, so when you find it hard making out time in your schedule, just add an element of competition. It could be through sports betting, getting a fitness buddy or joining a fitness challenge, just look around. It’s easy to find competition in most sports. From martial arts to boxing, competition is the number one way to make you train harder. If you really want to up the stakes, take a super-fit friend to the gym or your workout class and you’ll find you work harder to keep up!
Picking out few minutes out of your busy schedule ain’t that hard. You could actually exercise during your lunch break. Whilst workouts can do wonders for your stress levels and overall fitness. Exercise at your desk, go for a walking meeting or just get off the bus a few stops earlier and enjoy a brisk walk to work.
Keep tabs on your level of activity
Monitoring your progress boosts your ego because its shows a reward to all your labor that is if you were laboring indeed. Most times, this is done by coaches and personal trainers but then you could actually do it too. After every month you should check your time rate during exercise, have you added or subtracted time from it. Try adding more fun workout techniques after every month.
Yes it is that easy. All you have to do is look way beyond your personal limitations and you would find relaxation at the end of it.
