Hey Angels and Alphas,
We live in a fast-paced world where it often feels like there is never enough time in the day. We are constantly bombarded with demands from work, family, and social obligations, leaving us feeling frazzled and stressed. It’s no wonder that so many of us feel like we’re just trying to keep our heads above water. The good news is that you don’t have to let life get the best of you.
We’re all aware how important fitness is for keeping us healthy and improving our quality of life, but still, sometimes making the time for it can be a considerable challenge. If you quickly get used to putting other things before it, you’ll find yourself skipping workouts and bailing on your diet. This will have an adverse effect on your health.
Today, I’m sharing with you my list of the three biggest tips for making fitness work on a busy schedule.
Most people understand that they need to exercise regularly in order to stay healthy, but there is a lot of debate about how often you need to go to the gym. The simple answer is that it depends on your fitness goals and your schedule. If you want to see significant results, you will need to go at least three times a week for an hour or more.
However, if you are short on time, you can still get a good workout by going five times a week for 20 minutes each. The important thing is to find a schedule that works for you and stick with it. Remember, even moderate exercise can have a tremendous impact on your overall health, so don’t be afraid to start small and gradually increase your workouts as you become more comfortable with the routine.
Second, do your homework.
There are few things more enjoyable than curling up with a good book. But if you’re looking to improve your fitness level, you don’t have to forego your reading time altogether. Instead, try working out in your study breaks. Just read a chapter, then do a set of exercises, and repeat. You don’t even need to go to the gym – there are plenty of great home workouts that you can do to get fit. And don’t worry about not making progress – as long as you’re consistent, you’ll see results. So next time you’re looking for a way to squeeze in a workout, pick up a book and turn your study break into a calorie-burning session.
Third, meal prep.
Meal prepping is your saving grace. It won’t just help you get healthier and stay loyal to healthy eating, but it will also help you save time, too! Organize a meal plan you can cook on the weekends that will keep healthy meals and snacks available to you throughout the week. Meal prepping is often seen as a time-consuming task, but it can actually be a huge time-saver in the long run. By taking a few hours on the weekend to cook meals and snacks that you can easily grab during the week, you can avoid the temptation of unhealthy office snacks or quick trips to the fast food restaurant.
Not only will you save money by meal prepping, but you’ll also be able to control your portions and make sure you’re getting the right mix of macro and micronutrients. And if you’re worried about getting bored with the same old meals, there are plenty of healthy recipes out there that can be easily made in bulk. So don’t be discouraged by the initial investment of time – meal prepping will pay off in the end!
