Being a part of the working class means staying busy to keep up with the rest of the world. Having a full time job, trying to build your career, means less time to do the things we want. What do you want to do? I can tell you in my limited free time the last thing I want to do is exercise. I’d be much happier seeing a movie, spending time with my family or going to dinner with some friends. However most people care about how they look and want to do there best to stay healthy. There are the obvious routes to making time for our health. Waking up earlier, setting specific times in our schedules for the gym or just going late at night when we’ve finished our day. If these things are an option for you great, if not how about some helpful tips.
– When you wake up in the morning……Move! From the comfort of your own bed do 30 sit ups. Prop your legs against the wall and bust them out. This isn’t going to kill your belly fat but it will get your body moving and help you stay more active through out the day.
– Take a break. Go for a walk on your lunch. The average person walks 1 mile in 12 minutes. You can afford 12 minutes, and that’s one more mile than you walked yesterday.
– Work on your posture, keep yourself more alert and active. A new trend in the workplace is yoga balls. In newer companies you will see people sitting on yoga balls instead of regular office chairs. This will not only keep your back straight but will strengthen your core.
– Drink lots of water. Replace that terrible sugary soda with a cold bottle of water. We all need to stay hydrated . Water helps your process everything else you put in to your body by keep your liver nice and clean. The average person needs between half a gallon to a gallon and a half of water a day.
