Right from our childhood, we all long for a secure 9-5 job, and why wouldn’t we? The media & our near and dear ones have always put having a 9-5 as the epitome of success.
While being fully devoted to a full-time job is a marker of accomplishment, a lot of times people forget about other important aspects of life, such as staying healthy & eating right. Most of the jobs demand high desk time and less time for other activities such as going for a walk or even hitting the gym.
A lot of people find it difficult to inculcate these things in daily life.
Staying fit should not be a choice people have to make. Here are some things you can do to stay fit even if you’re running low on time :
– A Gainer Shake for Breakfast
If you’re living alone, getting a full plate of nutritious breakfast every day is far-fetched. Not every day will you be able to get up early and meal prep for yourself. A perfect alternative to this is drinking a Gainer shake, which is dense in calories &
high in nutrients as a fast drink-n-go breakfast. Keeping the items required for the shake ready the night before will enable you to whip up the shake in no time. Adding Peanut Butter, Greek Yogurt, Berries, Nuts, etc will keep you fueled until lunchtime.
– A Bulking Lunch
While this may not be accessible to everyone given their locations and accessibility to foods, if you can get your hands on some good high protein lunch either by ordering it or getting it packed from home, then that would be desirable in such cases. Foods comprising lean meat, salmon, avocado, cottage cheese, whole eggs, beans, etc will provide you with a perfectly nutritious meal.
– Snacking & After Work Workout
Packing a bag of roasted peanuts before heading to work can be taken into consideration. A lot of actors & actresses have also been seen carrying some healthy snacks on their shoot to get in the nutrients for the day, be it some roasted nuts or cut fruits in Tupperware.
If your body allows, then hitting the gym after your work hours will enable you to put your day’s eating to good use. Once you start then your body will get accustomed to the timings and you feel energized even after hours of work at the office. If your office has a connected gym, then that’s a win-win!
These are just some recommendations as to how you can make use of the time you have in hand and still conquer the world by crushing it both in your formal & informal worlds. A good dinner & pre-bed snack can also contribute to positive and faster results.
Making little tweaks here and there, staying consistent and true to yourself will allow you to reach your goals even if you are short on time.
