More Tips On Busy Schedules – Healthy Lifestyle


  • Make sure you get plenty of sleep

All too often when it feels like there are just not enough hours in the day, we get into the bad habit of tempting ourselves to stay awake until late or wake up ridiculously early to get everything done.  Eventually, that strategy can backfire if you’re not getting enough quality shuteye for your body to function properly. If you’re trying to change your behavior and lose weight by eating less and moving more, you will be more likely to achieve that if you are getting the proper amount of sleep.

  • Productive weekends

Even though we’re pressed for time, most of us have pretty predictable schedules when it comes to the much needed weekends, if you’re anything like me, you cannot wait to have a long lie in, followed by comfort foods and more sleep. However, can help to spend some time on Saturday and Sunday shopping for healthy food, preparing some lunch and dinner items for the week, and deciding which days you’re going to eat what.

You can also use your day or days off to get in longer workouts at the gym than you’d have time for during the week. If you can get in 120 minutes of exercise over the weekend, you really only need to dedicate small amounts of time throughout the week to reach your 150-minute goal.

  • Get your family and friends involved

You may argue that weekends are for family time, or that you’d rather spend your precious free time with friends. But why not turn that social time into fitness time? You don’t need to go to the gym for it to count as exercise, You can choose to participate in an activity with your kids for a few hours and still get your heart rate up and see beneficial results.

Swap your typical girls shopping spree into a date in Spin class. Or, start a weekly walking or hiking tradition with your family. Either way, being active with others can help you stick with it. Social support is a key ingredient to any sort of behavior change.

  • Switch to a high-intensity workout

The best workout for fat loss doesn’t require hours upon hours in the gym. In fact, multiple studies show that a 20-minute high-intensity interval workout may burn more calories than 45 minutes chugging away on the elliptical.

    With the schedule like mine, it is almost impossible to think about health. This article came at the right time. I was eating junk food, not working out and consuming too much calories late at night. My excuse: too busy. In reality, every bit of this post is on the money. Thx

      I am a personal trainer and have trained loads of clients, during my six years of training high net-worth individuals. Most think the same. Time is not something that you have, it is something you make. Nothing is more important than your health. Like they say, wealth without health, doesn’t go too far. Healthy eating is not a diet plan but a lifestyle. When i train my personal training clients in Dubai, beside physical training, i preplan meals for them. Even when they travel; which most of them do often, i provide them with a plan. This plan includes, what they should eat and list of restaurants close to where they will be, which have it on the menu. This preplanning makes it easier to eat right. I have noticed, when they exercise/eat healthier, they have more energy to spend time with their family and they sleep better.

      “I am too busy” is just an excuse.
