Find Balance with Your Workout

Krista Bugden21 Mar 2018

You can do it all. Finding a balance between your workout, family, social life, and busy work schedule can be draining. At times, it can feel as though it’s next to impossible to fit that workout in. That’s why we made a list of tips regarding how you can find your balance and juggle all aspects of your life, without compromise.

Schedule Your Workout

Before you get caught up in the next work crisis or your daughter’s soccer game, make a plan. Schedule what days and times you are going to work out this week. Plan for it and stick to your schedule. You will be less likely to skip out on your workout and won’t be fighting to fit it in during your busy schedule. You need some “me time” too. Take care of yourself. When you are at your best, you can give your best in other aspects of your life, such as work or parenting.

Balance Workout Time with Family Time

Are you torn between family time and workout time? Do both! Take the kids for a hike or bike ride. Go for a swim at your local pool. Have your kids join you in your morning yoga flow. Make it fun and spend quality time together while staying healthy.

Find a Workout Buddy

A lot of social gatherings revolve around food. If you are trying to get back in shape or lose weight, this may hinder your goals. Instead, plan to catch up with your friends via healthy means. Go for a walk, join a fitness class together, or use the FitReady app to motivate each other. Have a friendly competition and see who can unlock the next workout first!

Stretch It Out at Work

If you are sitting or standing all day, you should be stretching almost every hour. Low back pain is the number 1 cause of disability. Sitting or standing all day can cause tension in the muscles of the back, neck, and shoulders. Give your body a break. Squeeze in a quick 5-10 minute yoga stretch in the office.
