“Your body can stand almost anything. It’s your mind that you have to convince.”
Everyone wants to stay fit and look at their very best all the times, but doesn’t this feel like an impossible task to achieve with your busy schedules and workload. You may be thinking that your fitness goal is distancing from you with every passing day. But it is possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle, even if you have an uptight schedule.
But as the quote above says, “You only have to convince your mind” and fitness and health is a breeze. You will have to adapt to some changes but you can get used to them if you have the will. Prepare your mind to make some small changes that will have a big impact on your life.
A FIXED TIME TABLE
We all have created time tables all our life and have concluded that time tables never work. But maybe we have been doing it all wrong. While you make your time table keep in mind that the time table is for you and not the other way round. Don’t make it too rigid, sort your priorities first. Fix a certain time where you will work out and stay true to it.
A LITTLE EFFORT A DAY –
Don’t try to over-do yourself. Remember little steps are a key to a fit life. You have to push yourself but don’t be too hard on yourself. You can try short yet intense cardio sessions, zumba or even yoga. Remember to give yourselves a little break every now and then.
QUICK PREP FOOD AND MORE TIME FOR YOU –
Try adding quick food recipes like salads and oats in your diet and avoid take-out or delivery from your favorite restaurant. This way you don’t need too much time and you end up being in a better shape. Try to inculcate more leafy vegetables and focus less on wheat or bread.
WAY TO GO WITH LIFE –
It is not necessary for you to go for the gym for staying fit. Try small habits like walking to the store or taking the steps instead of the elevator, these small changes will make a big difference. Try home workouts or walking in the nearby garden if you cannot go the gym.
You can have 100 excuses for not doing it, but you need to find the one reason for starting right now.
