Work can be an obstacle to working out and the paradox is the more successful and exciting your career is, the less you tend to exercise. However, working out regularly is integral to sustained success in your workplace as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Squeezing an exercise routine into your overburdened workweek can seem like an impossible task, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Days at the office can be stressful and filled with meetings, urgent emails and appointments. It’s easy to feel exhausted by the end of the day, and many men want only to get home to a nice dinner and relaxation—the gym is the last thing on their wish list.
That’s why finding a way to work out in the morning or during the day is the answer to increased exercise for many men. Though you may think that stepping away from your hectic day is unimaginable, all you need is a little creativity to work in some exercise time into your day. Here are seven ways you can do it:
1. Choose Efficient Workouts
If your workout routine is long and complicated, you’re more likely to put it off because you’re too busy. However, there are plenty of quick, efficient and simple workout routines that are just as effective and can be done almost anywhere. These workouts can be anything from Tabata routines, running or jogging or tai-chi. Find what works for your schedule, preferences, and level of health and what will keep you interested and challenged. This will help you muster motivation whether you’re at home, on the road or in the office.
