The blessings of computer and information technology have, on one hand, brought a whole bunch of employment opportunities on a single desk but, on the other hand, the perils of these advancements are that we are getting more and more lethargic and seat-bound humans. This, in turn, is deteriorating our health, which ultimately reduces our productivity. To overcome this lack of productivity we have to put more time on our jobs which adds to the problem even more. In this way, we end up getting stuck in a vicious circle of fractious work-life balance.
So, what is the solution? Always remember that good old proverb – “A sound body has a sound mind.” If you are not 100% physically fit, then rest assured that your mind also will not be working on its peak potential. This physical and mental state makes you more insatiable to your work. The pragmatic solution to this predicament is devoting sometime to exercise on daily basis.
I know that this thing is easier said than done and requires a lot of dedication and persistence to continue for longer period. But the biggest hurdle in doing so is taking the first step. Once you get your schedule settled for exercise, the benefits you will be reaping would surely keep you going.
To help you get started, I would suggest setting smaller goals and starting slowly, and unless you are planning to take part in the next UFC, do not rush! You can never lose a pound or two of your weight in a healthy manner within just 2 or 3 days. So prepare yourself both mentally and physically to start the journey. Over-stressing yourself excessively on the very first day would make you feel obnoxious and you would get demoralized to continue further. Gradually increase duration and complexity of your workout so that your body adapts to this change.
These workouts are neither intended to give 6-packs nor are they efficient enough to make your biceps curl, but an overall strong and fit physique while maintaining your busy schedule is the basic intent of these exercises. I hope that this post proves to be useful for our respected readers who, like me, are struggling to start their workout plan. I have my workout plans all set, what about you? 🙂
