Most people who are working full-time will find it hard to keep up with their fitness while simultaneously keeping up with work! But here are a few ways that you can help yourself keep in shape while still being able to stay productive!
While this one is simple in idea, it’s harder to do in practice—always elect to walk when you can! If you are sitting a lot of the day, make it point to walk whenever needed! If you work from home you can get up every 15 minutes and walk around the room for a quick 30 seconds—and if you work in an office always be sure to get up and walk when you can! It all can add up by the end of each day!
If you are stuck in a chair all day and cannot move, an under-desk set of pedals or treadmill can be a huge life-saver! If you have a desk that can lift-up, then an under-desk treadmill is a great option, but if your desk is stationary a set of under-desk bike pedals can be a great idea for you! By keeping active through the day and not staying sedentary, you will greatly benefit your health and keep in shape while working all day!
This one is a little harder to do on a daily basis, or if you are on a tight schedule, or if you are in a crowded office—but after each call, case, or client, do a set of push-ups or sit-ups! Any exercise that you want to do instead works too! By doing this you can actually get sore after working all day, but be sure that it doesn’t cut into your actual work!
