3 Ways to Stay in Great Shape While Working 9 to 5


While a 9-to-5 job is demanding and intense, it doesn’t have to wreck your health and fitness. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Long working hours, office parties, unhealthy eating, and stress of deadlines can throw your weight loss goals for a toss.

While squeezing in a regular workout may be difficult, there are other options for women to stay in shape. And, guess what? You don’t even have to leave the office premises to benefit from them.

Check out these 3 smart tips to help raise your fitness quotient while working in an office setting.

Take “exercising” out of the gym

Exercise is not just about working out in the gym. It’s about all day movement and booting out a sedentary lifestyle. Quit spending long hours glued to your chair or computer screen and start walking around. Little things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, strolling over to a co-worker’s desk for discussion instead of shooting an e-mail, or parking your car at the farthest end of the parking lot can go a long way in ushering in an active, calorie-burning lifestyle.

Spread your meals thin instead of lumping it up

If your aim is to shed those ungainly pounds, make healthy eating a daily ritual. No matter how delectable the food looks at the client luncheon or weekend barbecue party, reach out for the salads, fruits, and soups first. Allow yourself an occasional sugary treat, but not too often! Also, have small meals at intervals of two hours to fire up the metabolism and prevent binging.

Add “workouts” to the “work” at your desk

You can engage in a number of sneaky workouts, ranging from shoulder shrugs, wall push-ups, isometric crunches, or the silent butt squeeze at your desk. All these are easy to do and require very little effort. Choose the one you fancy and get cracking at it whenever you can during the day.

So, there you go! These simple tips coupled with some discipline could well be your secret sauce to sculpting a fabulous body.
