As much as we all want to exercise, sometimes we’re just too busy to fit it into our day. But fear not, we’ve highlighted 4 handy tips to ensure that you can still get it in, without getting overwhelmed by all the other things you’re got on your plate!
- Keep comfy clothes in your car: If you can get away with wearing workout clothes to your job, even better, but if not, keeping a spare set with you is key. This leaves you the chance to go for a run after work or a walk at lunch.
- Buy a skipping rope: Such an easy way to get a great workout. Jump for 5-10 minutes while watching TV or use it for a full cardio workout. Simple and cheap!
- Utilise mundane tasks: If you’re going to have a seriously busy day, use every day tasks to get your workout in. Do squats while you brush your hair and teeth. Use your kitchen counter for push-ups as your coffee brews. Do leg raises from your chair—whatever! You’d be shocked at how much you can move with no gym equipment or gym involved.
- Challenge your coworkers: Using a Fitbit or fitness app, ask coworkers to get involved in a friendly challenge. Whoever can take the most steps each week until the end of the year gets a prize—or at least bragging rights. This doesn’t require a commitment to a workout or the gym, but it will get you moving!
