How to stay fit when you’re super busy

Posted on: January 12, 2018

Wouldn’t it be great if you always had spare time for fitness? When life throws at you work, family duties and social commitments, 24 hours a day doesn’t seem like nearly enough to fit in exercise. But you can’t afford to shrug it off! Stop stressing, keep calm and follow these four tips to keep fit during your hectic schedule.

Follow a save-time workout plan

Get fit fast with a save-time workout plan! If you have the discipline, you can make your workouts super-efficient. Your sweat sessions don’t have to take up several hours of the day, as there are many ways you can save time. For example, do a thirty-minute, high intensity workout at the gym. This will help you build fitness while spending less time exercising. You could also try HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts, which can be done anywhere. The best part: you don’t need any equipment. The training is fun, challenging and ideal for a busy schedule.

Morning exercise

Working out in the morning can get your body out of snooze mode. It also means you’ll be able to keep fit before the kids get out of bed. You don’t have to start the day with a vigorous workout – instead opt for calmer exercises, whether at home or at the gym. You can do leg lifts, squats, and any other gentle movements that yield effective results. By the end, you’ll feel energised and ready for the day!

Squeeze in a lunch break workout

If you don’t want to exercise after work, on the weekends or in the mornings, you’re left with lunch break workouts. You can squeeze in a good, effective workout on your break if you plan ahead! Whether you take a thirty-minute spin class or go for a short run, figure out how much you time you have and prepare accordingly. Make your healthy choices a life-long habit.

Drink lots of water

We’ve heard it all before, but many people forget to drink when they are busy. Always keep a bottle of water at hand and drink lots when you wake up in morning. Even when you’re not working out, just fuelling up on water can aid in your overall fitness and health. Water lubricates your muscles and gives you more energy, making you feel better and more alert.

Always make the effort to keep up a healthy lifestyle. Also, don’t forget to eat the right food. Grab a pack a Taste Inc. chicken to increase your protein intake. Combine Taste Inc. with other food to replenish energy and build muscle – a simple salad, a healthy pitta, the possibilities are endless. Find our snacks at your local Morrisons, Tesco, Asda and Ocado.
