It is recommended by professionals that individuals, including children, work out for approximately sixty minutes everyday. This is almost impossible for some people who are working two or three jobs, and have little time to fit in an hours worth of exercise all at once. However, there are ways that you can fit at least this much into your daily routine. Simple changes can make all of the difference when it comes to fitness levels. Planning in advance is important when it comes to incorporating a good exercise program into your busy schedule. Here are some ideas.
- Do three quick 10-minute workouts instead of one 30-minute workout
- Have your exercise clothes next to your alarm clock to remind you to work out when you wake up.
- Make sure you have prepared drinks or supplements that you may need in advance.
- If you like to work out at lunchtime and you pack a lunch, include a note to remind and motivate yourself
- Put your workout in your appointment planner just like any other scheduled meeting, or add it into yourcomputer calendar.
- If possible, include a friend, relative or spouse in your workout plans. You can motivate each other.
- Park your car at the farthest end of the parking lot to increase your steps during the day
- Take the steps instead of the elevator at work, or any other place that has the option.
- Wear shoes that enable you to walk or exercise when the time permits
- Stop once an hour or so to stretch or do some jumping jacks or other exercise while at your desk if the time and space permits.
Even these little changes will contribute greatly to your overall fitness level.
