A Few General Exercising Tips for the Busy Professionals
Living in the world of hectic schedules and fast paces, where the regular 9-5 is already history, makes all of us finish our working days completely exhausted and lacking energy for anything else. Under those circumstances going to the gym sounds as a science fiction scenario, since people struggle to keep up with all their obligations and meet their personal needs at the same time, and all these in a non flexible 24hours day.
However, we all reckon and acknowledge the huge benefits of a daily exercise in our lives, since it can help us not only function better ,experiencing less fatigue strokes , but also to maintain some good levels of spiritual and mental health. This is the most important reason for which we have to try to fit some exercise in our schedule no matter how busy that is.
Let’s see a few tips for busy professionals as well as housewives and even mothers:
The most important thing is to make a commitment, mostly to yourself that you will start exercising and you will adhere to the schedule that you will set. Schedule is the magic word, especially for the beginning, before exercising becomes a habit and an inextricable part of your day. Try to mark down 3-4 days when you can find thirty minutes or even better an hour free for yourself and use it for some exercises. The best thing is to do something every day, however it can be really hard so starting with 4 days is good anyway; after some time your body and mind will ask for a little more and you will need to steal a few minutes to stretch or do some aerobic .
Make sure, though, that you have a backup plan because sometimes unexpected and urgent events can throw you off your plans completely ; it’s a good idea to know when you can squeeze in some exercises in case of plan changes.
Exercising doesn’t necessarily mean sweating on a treadmill; actually exercising includes even daily activities that we usually don’t think about, like walking, climbing stairs, housekeeping or even going for heavy shopping and walking back from the grocery store. Try to walk instead of taking the car in relatively short distances. Climbing stairs instead of using an elevator, or walking a couple of miles in fast pace, such as power walking, can be a very good exercise and is supposed to be extremely helpful for heart and respiratory system.
Same with bike; try to avoid car and use your bike especially in nice weather. Not only you will do some exercise but you will also enjoy the nice day and you will feel better and more confident. These are little tips that we usually don’t think of, but can have a great effect on our daily lives and plus are time savers; you don’t need to schedule anything; you just do regular things but exercise at the same time.
The key element in your effort will be the level of dedication and your determination to follow a healthier lifestyle starting with some small exercising plans. Making them a part of your everyday life will make you feel stronger, fresh and new, as exercising can be a rejuvenating factor in your hectic and busy life. It is important to find some time for yourself because you deserve it.
