Exercise In The Boardroom
With the holidays around the corner, finding a balance between working a full time job and fitting in exercise can be next to impossible. What are some of the ways you maintain an active lifestyle? Whether it’s something small like always having a water bottle on hand or doing in-office workouts, the littlest things can make a big difference.
Knowing your work schedule (meetings, conference call times) in advance is always a huge help as well. If you plan to exercise during your work day or lunch break, make sure you have enough time to shower and change before you head back to the office. If you plan to work out during your lunch break, leaving a gym bag in your office or below your desk is always a great time-saver. One of the biggest things that most people forget is having a gym bag prepared the night before.
Packing the essentials such as sneakers, headphones and a change of clothes (trousers, dress shirt, blazer, etc.) can make heading to the gym and office that much easier. If you’re still interested in learning more tips, British business wear company, T.M.Lewin has created an infographic with information on how to easily fit in exercise amongst a busy work day.
