Health Tip – Sept. 25 – Try a Lunchtime Workout
If your schedule is tight, try a 30-minute lunchtime workout. You’ll lose the stress and anxiety — and get a boost in energy. Stepping away from work helps clear your mind, helps you refocus, too. You’ll be calmer, more productive.
Circuit training is great for a 30-minute workout. If a gym isn’t nearby, take a walk. Walk half an hour every day, and you can lose 10 pounds in a year — if you keep your diet healthy. Here are a few more tips:
1. Keep a workout bag at your desk: sneakers, gym clothes, basic grooming tools. Baby wipes help you clean up fast so you don’t have to shower.
2. Pack a lunch so you don’t have to wait in food lines.
3. Keep small pre-workout snacks on hand, like almonds, walnuts, string cheese, cottage cheese, oatmeal — so hunger won’t slow you down.
As we head into the holiday season, these workouts are especially important. Just don’t stress out about exercise. With just a little planning, exercise should eliminate the stress!
