With demanding jobs and gazillion things to do, not everyone has the time nor the energy to hit the gym three times a week.
But everyone wants to be fit and fab. I feel you girl, the struggle is so real! Grab these simple tricks to move more when you just don’t have the time.
Get up early and go
It’s definitely tempting to press the snooze button and hide under the sheets when your alarm rings. But being an early bird gives you more time to get into workout mood. Even a quick 15-minute yoga or a half hour morning jog would be enough to energize your body and prepare it for the day ahead. Working out after work is also a good option. However, fatigue and social activities might get in the way.
Make it short but intense
There are incredible 5 to 10-minute workouts online to try. Get your sweat on with the Tabata routine or High-Intensity Interval Training. These workouts are designed to burn a lot of calories in little time.
Need weights? A water bottle or milk jug can help you firm up those biceps. Place your back against the wall and use it as support for those lunges. Use a chair for a full body workout.
Hit the hot tub
After a busy day, an hour-long bath is definitely a great choice for your well-deserved “me time”. A study shows that an hour long hot bath gives the same benefits as walking for half an hour. Imagine, burning 140 calories while soaking in a hot bubble bath. Life is good!
Keep that body moving
Ordering takeout? Pace while waiting in line. Getting ready for work? Do some squats in front of the mirror. Catch up on your reading while cycling on your stationary bike. There are truly many creative ways to exercise when you’re determined to find the time.
How about you? How do you find the time to work out?
