Exercises and work outs for busy schedules
After coming back from a long and draining day in the office, having dealt with many complex issues the only thing you really want is to come back home, sit in the couch, relax and unwind with your family, watching some –indifferent most of the times – TV programs, or listening to the music. Exercising is not something that you will possibly think, since you combine it with extra fatigue and more lost time from your personal life. This is not true though if you know how to do it.
Keeping yourself fit doesn’t mean endless hours of running or working out; it can be both useful and fun. Doing some stretches and aerobic exercises in short sessions that you can do either at home or even at work, during lunch break or just a regular ten minutes unwinding break. Do some stretches for legs, arms and neck, using the method that suits your style best: Yoga or Pilates are the most recommended since they both aim at the muscle invigoration using natural moves and can prove extremely relaxing and rejuvenating even at work.
Sitting all day anyway is something that makes the body get easily tired and stiff, so that can help a lot. Stretching is a form of exercise that you can do after you return home, with your family, or listening to some music; it is very pleasant and will leave a sentiment of wellness, as it will turf out fatigue and enhance concentration. Aerobic on the other hand is a more power and brisk form of exercise but you can turn that into a big advantage for yourself, since you can perform some aerobic exercises while walking fast or climbing stairs.
Even when being at work you can take advantage of the time that you don’t need to be sited in front of the computer all the time; walk around the office, hold some heavy books and do some raises. If you do that for some time your muscles will feel more toned. Keep in mind that when it comes to aerobic, a 30 minutes straight work out is great and 60 is ideal, however you can always do smaller sessions of 10mins each time throughout the day. That will keep you more energized and zappy all day, breaking the hours of stiffness and standstill that usually make us feel more dull ,sleepy and lethargic.
A very good idea for those who want to exercise but don’t want to lose time from their interaction with family and kids, is to try to do some sports in the house – especially if you have a yard – with your kids. Play 30mins of racquetball or basketball, toss a ball or do something that can be both entertaining and exercising at the same time. You can turn some regular work out into fun this way and plus share some moments with family and kids.
The most vital and important thing is that you need to find what works better for you and when, since you know your body and schedule better than anyone else. Combine some daily or regular exercise with healthy diet and you will get amazing results even after a month; your entire mood and overall feeling will be better, feeling more alert and lively.
