Finding the Time for Workplace Exercise, Relieve Some Stress

I don't know about you, but sometimes the long hours seated before a computer screen can be grueling.  The eyes tear up, my back begins to ache and my poor legs feel numb at times.  So I have to remind myself to get up and move around.

When does one find the time to exercise?

I started taking advantage of the walk ways around the buildings at work earlier this year--a good way to get some workplace exercises in (stretching, power-walking, etc.)  This helped immensely--less aches, brain fog, mood swings, and more! Then I looked for other opportunities to walk after work as well around my apartment complex.  I saw that some women were thinking like me too except they were staying late after work dressing up in workout apparel and speed walking like doing many laps around the buildings before taking the long drive home.

Too much sitting causes so many work-related health problems then throw in the electrical devices (sigh).  From headaches to leg pain, if one doesn't do more to take care of the body, he or she will end up missing work days.  I saw a lot of that on my job--employees calling-off for a variety of things including back pain.

Scheduling your workout days on your calendar, like you do meetings, will start to get your mind to adjust to the idea that this is needed change to improve you!  Posting a positive quote or image related to working out will also help.  Taking a look at some of those co-workers who are already disciplined, look healthy, and enjoy their workouts are also good ways to motivate you as well.

As much as we might like or love getting that paycheck, it isn't worth spending a good amount on medical bills because we simply ignored our bodily needs.  I must admit that when I take time to listen to my body, I feel less stressed too!  So here's to a new you in the coming year!  Feel free to come back and share your accomplishments here!
