How to Exercise Regularly Despite a Busy Schedule
If you have a busy schedule, you can still find time to exercise by teaching your mind that exercise is non-negotiable and work or personal life can’t be given more importance than it. In case you have a lot on your plate, learn to multitask like reading emails on the treadmill or listening to audiobooks when you are weight training. If you have to make calls, walk while you speak.
Early Nights and Mornings
If you have trouble being asleep at night and getting up in the morning, then you need to make it a habit to wake up two hours earlier. If you are awake early morning every day and have a full plate, you would be ready to hit the bed by 10 at night. Exercising in the morning will also help as it will wake you up and make you feel more energized.
If you find it hard to stick to workout schedules, then make yourself accountable by planning it with a friend or relative.
