So, how are those New Year’s resolutions going? Many of us start the year with intentions of eating healthier and getting in shape. If things are not going as you had planned, don’t worry, you’re not alone.
It doesn’t help that most professionals work desk jobs. However, there are some ways you can stay active and burn calories without having to carve a big block of time out of your schedule:
- Take the stairs – Simply switching from the elevator to the stairs is enough to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. If you’re on a high floor, take the elevator part of the way and finish with a shorter walk up the stairs.
- Stand up and stretch – Take a break when you can. Grab a cup of coffee or go out for lunch. Instead of emailing or calling a colleague, walk over and speak with him or her in person.
- Try a desk workout – A desk is a great platform you can use to stretch your shoulders. It also provides stability for exercises like calf raises and chair squats.
It doesn’t take much time or effort to fit helpful exercise into your busy daily routine. With a little creativity and planning, you’ll be back on-track to achieving your fitness goals.
