Working out in general can be a difficult feat for any busy, working individual. Finding the time to devote 30 minutes to 1 hour of your day can be feel like putting together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in 5 minutes. Most often, you just don’t feel like you have time. Even worse, if you’re an entrepreneur, staying up till the wee hours of the morning, and working on what seems like 8 million ideas brewing inside of your head … you definitely don’t feel like you have the time or energy to workout.
Luckily, finding motivation to workout doesn’t need to be a stressful process. In fact, it can be quite easy—especially if you’re on the go. Here are a few, quick full body workouts you can accomplish in a short amount of time and leave you feeling refreshed and accomplished.
No matter where you are in the world, you can easily roll out your yoga mat and take 5 to 30 minutes to do some deep breathing and balancing stretches. It’s a relaxing way to clear your mind and gently work your muscles. Not an avid yogi, no problem. There are millions of guided yoga classes online that you can follow if you need it.
The beauty of running is that you can do it anywhere and anytime. Just pack your running shoes, a t-shirt, shorts, and some music, and you’re all set up for a cardio-blasting run. You set the pace and the time you have to commit to your run. It’s an easy workout that fits into your schedule at any point in the day.
10-Minute Total Body Workouts
I’m not joking when I say 10 minutes and total body workout. It is possible, and it is worth every second of your time. Just YouTube “10 Minute Workout” and the options are endless. Best part about these quick workouts, you can do them from home, a hotel room, the office, or wherever. All you need is yourself, an open space, and WIFI to connect to the Internet. You may think 10 minutes is short, but you will feel the benefits (and soreness) of your workout the next day.
Whatever time it is or wherever you are, there are really no excuses for not fitting a quick workout into your day. Whether it’s yoga, running, or a YouTube video—you can stay healthy and fit while juggling all the demands of being an entrepreneur.
