In our busy daily schedule, we hardly get enough time for keeping ourselves fit. But it is more than just important to stay fit and healthy. Yes, I know it is a bit challenging in recent days as we have to hop between the office and home.
It becomes more challenging and tougher for all those working women who also need to look after their houses apart from doing their office or desk jobs. So, here I will tell you some health and fitness tips for busy professionals.
Best 6 Fitness Tips For The Working Women Professionals
Here are the 6 best fitness tips for working women. Apart from some useful body fitness tips for females that will definitely help you in staying healthy and fit, I have also included some tricks as well for better results and make your challenge a bit easier.
1. Recover From All Desk Job
Let’s start with a trick rather than a tip. Here you can make your affected hand relax. All you need is a rubber band; a hair scrunchie will also work here. Touch all the tips of five fingers of the affected hand, and it will be like forming a sort of point. Now slip the scrunchy or the band around all five fingers. Now against the resistance of the scrunchie or band, draw those five fingers apart.
It is more like a reverse squeeze. You can do it anytime and anywhere, whether you are not using the hand. Like while you are watching Tv at your home, or in between your mails, or while driving back from the office. At the same time, I will relax your hands, fingers and also be the stress buster.
2. Stay Active Throughout The Day
Staying active throughout the day does not mean sitting at your desk and doing all your work actively. Walk and talk hands-free if possible, during a meeting, stand up. In case you do not have much typing work, try to stand up as much as possible.
During your lunch break, take a short walk, or take a short break in every half an hour and walk for a minute before sitting at your desk again. There are plenty of options in order to stay active throughout the day. It is totally onto you; which one will you start doing. But at least opt for one.
3. Always Select A Healthy Snack Option
In case you have a habit of snacking all the day round, shifting your snacking options to those healthier snacks will greatly benefit you. Instead of harming your health, they will rescue you from some health issues as well. So, make sure that you are stuffing your snack counter with some healthy snack options. Here are some healthy snack suggestions for you,
● Kale chips
● Apple slices with peanut butter
● Mixed nuts
● Dark chocolate with 70% cocoa solids and almonds
● Greek Yogurt and mixed berries
● Cottage cheese with faux seeds and cinnamon
● Celery sticks with cream cheese.
All these snacks also work amazingly in your weight loss.
4. Have Good Breakfast
In our busy schedule, we often skip our breakfast when we have an early morning meeting. Many of us also think that skipping breakfast will help us in losing weight. But in actuality, the thing is just the opposite. In order to stay healthy and fit, all working women should maintain a proper diet along with workouts.
So having breakfast is really important in staying fit and healthy. Include a bunch of fresh fruits into your breakfast. Try to have some fruits that have glucose. It will help you to keep sweet cravings at bay. You also can add some dry fruits along with fresh fruits to your breakfast for energy.
5. Drink Lots Of Water
For the proper functioning of our body drinking, enough water is really important. Make sure you are drinking water at regular intervals. Water maintains our body temperature and also removes all the toxins from our bodies. During our office jobs, most of the time we spend in the ac. And as a result of it, we often end up drinking less than the required amount of water.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water so that you can keep yourself away from dehydration. As per the United States Academy of Science, a woman should drink at least 11.5 cups or 2.7 liters of water on a daily basis.
6. Be Flexible
Following a proper routine may seem impossible at times. So, rather than making a strict routine, it is good to become flexible. For example, in case you have dedicated your mornings for workout sessions and suddenly and the meeting comes up in the morning.
Wake up a little earlier and go to the gym before you are ready and left for the meeting rather than skipping the gym for that particular day. Be determined that you will give one hour to your workout session no matter what happens. That one hour can be any “one hour” during the whole day.
So, in order to stay fit and healthy, you need to change your eating habits, diets, lifestyle, and definitely a work-out pattern. Make sure that you are not overdoing anything. 80% of our physical health and fitness depends on the food that we intake. So, try to follow a proper diet, reduce the intake of refined carbs but do not cut out the carbs totally from your diet as they are also important for our body.
