Is your daily schedule so busy that you can never find the time to exercise? Well there are no excuses! Here are a few easy workouts that you can do at work that will get you up and moving around.
By now you know that fitness matters in a big way, and that I take a lot of pride in helping you achieve your goals. One of the biggest challenges I keep hearing about from clients is that they’re too busy to workout. I can understand the sentiment – there really never seems to be enough hours in the day, after all.
But the fact is that there are plenty of exercises out there you can do while working. Whether you take a quick 5-minute break to sneak something in, or exercise while working, multitasking to fit your workout into the workday is incredibly important – and easier than you think. Let’s look at some easy ways to exercise at work:
• Sneak in exercise! stop taking the elevator and start taking the stairs, and park a bit further away from work than you normally would. This can sneak in a little cardio each day.
• Tap those toes while you’re at your desk! Just raising and lowering your legs speedily while you’re typing at a desk can give you some lower body exercise and even a bit of cardio.
• Stop dialing extensions and actually go visit the person you need to talk to. A walk through the cubicles each day several times can help you in a big way.
• Finally, take a five-minute break and jog in place, squeeze in some push-ups, or something similar. It’s easy to do.
The reality is that if you’re ready to get in shape for real, you’ll find a way to fit it into your day.
It’s never too late to get up and get active – after all, age isn’t what makes you “old.” A lack of activity and adventure does that! As for me and my daddy, we just party like nobody’s watching, just like we did at the courtyard at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland this summer! It was his first visit out – at 91 years young this year! He’s been a musician all my life, and he was sooo happy to be in the mix again. He was up dancing and everything! Can you tell I’m a daddy’s girl?

You may be wondering – Up dancing at 91 years old?! How? Well, the reason why he doesn’t need care and can still dance so well at 91 is this – he’s been following my advice. He stays active both physically and mentally by taking walks every day, and doing things like crossword puzzles to keep his mind sharp. He also keeps up with current events; he knows what’s going on in the world, and stays connected by e-mailing, using social media – even texting! Yep, he’s learned very well from me. Don’t tell him I told you, though; he still thinks he’s in charge. 😉 All in all, he’s a great example of what you can achieve too!
The point of the matter is this: You can’t enjoy wealth unless you have health first. When pain is absent from the body, clarity of the mind is present, and with clarity of the mind, creativity becomes rampant. And with creativity, you will always find more ways to be healthy, happy, wealthy, fit, and spiritually full of life. When you take charge of your life and your health, you will always find ways to reach your goals, dreams, and desires.
When you take charge of your life and your health, you can rule the world!
