Working out, for some of us can be the very foundation of self-care. Moving to make our bodies and minds feel good; by releasing the negative energy that sits on our chest late at night, especially with everything going on right now, staying healthy and keeping fit can be an uphill battle when you’re busy – homeschooling, working from home or being a vital key worker.
Here is some tips that will help you to find time so you can keep in tip-top shape.
Learn Some New Recipes
Slaving over a hot stove isn’t fun, especially after a busy day running around with your kids. To make sure that your not reaching for unhealthy convenient foods on those busy days, why not learn some super easy recipes that can be whipped up in minutes. A turkey steak with feta and beetroot salad is healthy meal can that be whipped up in under 10 minutes.
Less Can Be More
You don’t have to do an hour of exercise to reap the benefits and once you’re gotten your head around that, exercising more regularly will be a breeze, even when you’ve had a jam-packed day.
Workout With your Kids
Running around after your little ones can be better than any personal trainer. Playing with your kids, whether it’s dancing around your living room or jumping on the trampoline, both of which are great ways to workout without releasing it. And if that wasn’t enough to persuade you, by exercising with your kids you won’t have to feel guilty about not spending enough time with them.
If you’re having consist back to back telephone or video chat meetings whilst still homeschooling your kids, your stress levels are probably going to be sky-high – this could potentially have an impact on your health and well-being. The best thing that you can do to stay healthy and fit is to learn how to relax. Even if you don’t have time to meditate or take a hot bath, laughing can help to relax and reduce our stress levels. So why not watch some funny YouTube videos to help you unwind.
Live An Active Lifestyle
If your struggling to keep yourself active during lock down, with the gyms being closed and only being allowed out for one form of exercise a day, why not walk to and from the shop rather than jumping into your car or getting a taxi or do some gardening with your partner and/or kids. You may find it a lot easier to stay active than you first thought.
Once you’ve managed to crave some space into your busy schedule to do exercise, make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout by doing supersets. Super-setting can cut your exercise time in half as instead of having rest periods in between sets, you can do an alternative exercise’s that rest the muscles you’ve trained and exercise the opposite one before you do you next set.
Your diet can really suffer when your busy and pizzas and take-a-ways become a regular occurrence. But making sure that you are getting the right nutrients into your diet is to always have a good stock of foods that deliver maximum health benefits. For example: tomatoes (good for your heart), Blueberries (good for your cholesterol) and salmon (good for weight loss).
