July is almost over! Here are a few strategies for managing workout time with back to school schedul
With school starting back, things may get a little crazy! Here are a few things you can do to maximize your time effectively so that fitness can still be apart of your daily activity.
BE AN ACTIVE WATCHER
When you do watch TV, make the most of your time. Do some ball-crunches, planks, yoga poses, squats, lunges or pushups while you’re watching. Keep fitness equipment, such as a kettlebell, resistance bands and a jump rope, near the TV.
DIVIDE UP YOUR TO-DO LIST
Rather than making one long to-do list you’ll never complete, divide your list into smaller categories. Prioritize your list to get the most pressing tasks completed first. Everything else can be done as time permits. Doing this could provide you with a little more time during the day or in the evening to get a quick workout in.
SOCIALIZE ON THE MOVE
Next time a friend suggests meeting for lunch, dinner or drinks, counter with an active invitation. How about joining you for a Zumba class or a quick walk around the lake? Instead of spending time on the phone or emailing back and forth, suggest that you catch up on the latest news over a leisurely bike ride or attend a yoga class together.
These are just a few tips that could help you maximize workout time with your busy back to school schedule.
