As we engage with the summer months it might seem more difficult for us to remain active in our off time. Work makes it hard to stay true to our fitness obligations. The warmer summer months make it easier to write off that 5-mile run or that nature hike you’ve been meaning to go on.
But, the truth is, it’s not as difficult as it seems to get your workouts in and stay healthy, even if you’re working a demanding schedule. Read below for tips to improve your activity on a daily and weekly basis.
Exercise at Work
Try to do an office yoga routine every once in a while and maybe sneak in a few body squats and push-ups in the breakroom. If you have to resort to it, laugh extra hard at your coworker’s cheesy jokes to get an ab workout in.
No Days Off
It can be tempting to write off an entire day to “Netflix and chill” but you’ll likely feel pretty guilty about it. Instead, opt to go on a nature hike, a walk, a run, or even take a yoga class. Even on your days off from working out or exercising you can engage in active recovery.
Take a Class
Taking some type of class, whether it be yoga or even a martial art or MMA will help keep you accountable and you’ll enjoy the added benefits of joining a community.
