How To Balance Work With Staying Fit

Physical fitness has a lot to do with your professional success. 

Daily exercise keeps you mentally and physically fit, full of energy, focused and stress-free; pretty much everything that you need to succeed in your profession.

This success mantra is simple yet challenging to accommodate in your busy work schedule. And, the common problem with most of us is to find time for fitness activities.

All of us have exactly 24 hours to do everything we want to do every day. While we complain about not having enough time, successful entrepreneurs and business leaders like Ali Ghani and Mike Fata would show us that working and exercising can be difficult but not impossible. 

Despite having a busy work schedule and a plethora of responsibilities to cater to, you can still  invest time in your physical fitness every day and make it a priority, come what may!         

Here are five ‘S’ to balance your work with staying fit.

Schedule your day

You know your work priorities for each day. Schedule them and make a to-do list every night for the next day. Keep at least 20 minutes of your time for physical activities. If you include your workouts in your schedule, you will most likely complete them.

You can run during your lunch break, or wake up 30 minutes early in the morning to Aerobic Exercise, or head right to your gym from your office.

Whatever way you choose to workout, be consistent and make it a part of your everyday schedule. There is a concrete importance in incorporating exercise in the daily schedules.

Start your day with exercise.

While you can choose to workout anytime during the day, doing it first thing in the morning gives you another level of satisfaction and energy levels for the rest of the day. Your heart pumps blood when working out which raises your hormone levels and instantly boosts your mood.

Stand up more

Try to limit working sitting at one place for long hours. When in office, try to take breaks to move around, talk to your colleagues standing up, go for a short walk after lunch, and use stairs instead of elevators.

Set up a gym around you

If your schedule is too tight to make it to a gym every day, make a mini gym in your office or home. Bring in some workout equipment like a dumbbell, a cycle, or a treadmill. You can also use your chair and table to do some pushups and crunches. Just do a quick 5 minutes crunches in between your work and you will feel better.

Stay away from junk

It is very important to keep a check on your diet and food habits. A lifestyle without exercise and unhealthy food habits can prove to be a disaster for you. Nutrition plays an equally important role in staying fit. Eat a healthy breakfast to give you energy for the day, carry fruits and energy bars with you to the office to avoid binging on sweets and high-calorie food when you feel hungry. Try to eat home-cooked food as much as possible.
