Many times your career and family come before your own workout. However, you’ll be better able to give to your family and work if you take care of yourself first. Here’s how to juggle work, working out, and family:
- First, take a look at your daily schedule. Is it the same everyday, or constantly changing? Place 30 minutes of “me” time on your calendar everyday, preferably at the same time each day. If not, look at your schedule at the beginning of each week and add in your 30 minutes accordingly.
- If you don’t have time for 30 minutes, look at your schedule. If an emergency came up and you needed 30 minutes, what would you eliminate from your schedule to make time for the emergency? Start reframing the way you look at your schedule and see if there is anything that you’re able to drop.
- Finally, determine if you feel like you don’t deserve 30 minutes for yourself. If you don’t feel like you deserve it, why not?
- If you want to combine all aspects of your life, you can ask your kids to work out with you or take conference calls while on a cardio machine or on a walk.
