Many of us already know that exercise and a well-balanced diet are crucial to our health and well-being; but how many of us actually consider these a top priority? With demanding jobs, family commitments, and trying to make ends meet, most people do not have the time nor find it important enough to dedicate a portion of their hectic days to adequate exercise.
While some do try to include at least a walk during the weekend, it is necessary to give your body way more exercise than one walk a week, in order to maintain one’s health.
Society seems to have been divided into two factions; those that take diet and exercise extremely seriously, and others who put it off for the next day and never end up carrying it out. The former invests in memberships for state of the art gyms and BCAA supplements. They follow a strictly managed diet, and regulate the levels of their body fat. Focusing on optimizing muscle mass.
The latter are not even aware of what basic nutrients their body even needs, such as amino acids like L-glutamine.
While it may not be necessary for the average person to take it to the extreme level by investing in supplements and gyms, it is obvious that more time and effort should be put into adding at least a basic exercise plan into one’s life.
If you are a person who has almost zero time in your day to include an exercise routine due to work constraints, the best way to incorporate a workout into your day would be to do so early morning. By waking up a couple of hours earlier and working out even inside your home, would be a great way to start your day. In fact, exercising in the morning will give your body a boost, and help you stay energized throughout the day. Couple this with a nutritious breakfast and you may not even need to reach for you mid-day coffee to fuel you up.
Exercise at work
Although it may be impossible to get away from work to hit the gym, you can include mini workouts during your day. Small changes, such as opting to take the stairs instead of the elevator, or walking to a cafe to grab your lunch instead of sending your assistant, would allow you to include some level of movement into your work day. This will also break up the monotony of sitting at your desk all day.
