You work to earn money. You earn money to be happy. But, you are so overworked now—see, at this age you are so grumpy, how much grumpy will you be as a grandfather/grandmother?
Exercise has thousands of benefits and largely influence our lives. (I don’t need to say that!)
Staying fit is not getting six-packed abs. It is for normal functioning of the body and mind. If you are fit, you are 60% less prone to all the infectious diseases. But, you already know that. The problem is, where is the time? Don’t worry. Here are 4 tips for staying fit in your busy schedule.
Get adequate sleep
You will not get the benefits of whole day of workout if you don’t sleep enough. Most of the restoration process gets done in sleep. Growth hormone is secreted only in sleep. Sleep for 6-8 hours. If you don’t get enough time at night, take naps. Sleeping makes you energetic—so vital and reduces stress, anxiety and depression. But, do not even use sleep pills. There are plenty of natural sleeping techniques.
Do the exercise which you like
Suppose, you like to play soccer. But you join a swim club instead—only for ‘the sake of being fit’. It is not going to work. By doing the exercise you like, happiness-hormone endorphin gets released, which makes you happy and has countless effects on health. You will also feel more grumpy after doing 1 hour of sad-faced-workout. And, chances are, you will not continue it for a long time. So, opt for the thing you like. Hit the gym if you like it. Join a basketball club if you like it. Any outdoor sport is good.
Workout for 5 days a week
I know. It is not easy to make up the time. But, if staying fit is important to you (it should be), you must get the time. Any time, even at midnight it is ok to workout (and fun too!). For optimum results, exercise for 1 hour a day, 5 days a week. Anything less than that is not sufficient.
Make an oath, “I will cut out all artificial foods from now on”. It is impossible to cut out all, but not very hard to avid most. And all means all. You will get 60% of the results you wanted if you follow this oath.
Though genetics has a great role to play in your fitness, it is not very hard to be in great shape. Start from today—this moment. Throw the candy you are sucking.
