Work it Out! Fitting Exercise into your Working Day
If there were twice as many hours in the day you’d have no trouble getting some exercise in, right? Well, maybe. But until science or technology proves otherwise, you’re stuck in the 24-7 zone and there’s no escaping it.
So before you say you’re too busy at work to fit exercise into your schedule, or have no time or energy left at the end of a busy day for a workout, consider this: Do you want to feel so busy and stressed every day for the rest of your life that you never get your body in good shape? Or do you want to give exercise a chance? Perhaps it might actually help reduce your stress…

Why work out?
It’s a vicious cycle. You’re so busy at work that you can’t find time to exercise. There’s a huge stack of work to get through, and even if you do take a lunch break, you use it to catch up on emails, or go to the supermarket and do the grocery shopping. When you get home, you’re so exhausted from the day that you can’t find the energy to exercise – and who wants to add another thing to the to-do list anyway?
And guess what? It happens all over again the next day.
Although adding exercise into your day may seem like another task or sacrifice of time, in the end it buys you energy and time. Exercise is one of best ways to deal with the underlying stress that we experience as a result of our hectic lifestyles. When you’re less stressed, you sleep better, have more energy and are ultimately more productive at work. Plus, your health is better and you’ve got a better shot at a long, illness-free life.
