Unfortunately sitting doesn’t activate any kind of healthy outlook – so try the following:
- Next time you need to get to go to another floor for a meeting take the stairs
- Need to go to the bank a couple of blocks away, how about a walk during your lunch break
- Need a drink after a long hard day, how about a jog or swim instead
There is always a healthier option.
2) Spend time & workout with your kids.
Working professionals struggle to find time to be healthy and spend time with the family – here’s an idea, why not do both at once. Us your weekends or time off to get the family together and do something active, some example:
