WAYS TO WORK IT: 5 TIPS TO TAKE WITH YOU TO THE OFFICE FROM PHYSIQUE 57
Regardless of your hours, dress code, or office set-up, there’s no reason that your 9 to 5 should mess with your 24/7 health. Physique 57 have rounded up 5 key tips to keep on hand (and on your sticky notes, and screensaver, and home-screen) helping keep your best self a top priority at the office – no matter what else is on your agenda.
- Make Time to Move
Do it before or after work. Physique classes start as early as 6.30am and finish as late as 9pm so no excuse not to make it.
Enlist colleagues, making it a group thing as when you have others relying on you it makes you less likely to drop out and also keeps it sociable.
Working out keeps you energized and focused through meetings, crazy-tight deadlines, and thinking on your toes. (Just think. You could find a conference room right now and be planking while you read this). Test yourself and see how long you can hold a plank for!
- Keep Hydrated (Water) On the Job
From avoiding over-snacking to brightening your skin, eyes, nails, and hair, there’s nothing like a large drink of you-know-what to do something simple and restorative for your whole body. It will also help to stop bloating which is another cause of so many people feel too uncomfortable to workout.
- Snack Right
Before that time of day when lunch is all you can think about? You should be reaching for a few bites of something nutritious before that. Keeping your blood sugar levels stable ensures you don’t get too hungry before it’s actually time for your lunch break. Also, you’ll head off mindless munching (or loading up on sugary caffeine drinks) before you even start.
- Make a Break for It
Short breaks from your desk, chair, and immediate office space will free your brain and energy from daytime ruts. Changing up your immediate scenery boosts circulation, alertness, creativity, too. Now walk away from your desk and take a lap around the office (or even outside if you can)!
- Pack Your Lunch
Skip the grab-and-go sandwich, pizza, and café line. Put you first – and put some thought into what you put into your body. (The Physique 57 Solution is full of delicious recipes & inspiration which you can purchase from the Physique 57 studio). Buddy up with a co-worker and swap prep days Sunday through Wednesday, then treat yourselves to something new (and good for you) come Thursday.
