As a business leader, you are most likely dealing with an exceedingly busy schedule on a daily basis. With such an unpredictable and erratic lifestyle, it’s easy to forget about the importance of staying active and fit and to actually do something about it. What are some of the best ways you can fit regular workouts in your busy schedule in order to maintain an active lifestyle and improve your overall health and well-being?
A. Prioritize Through Routine
Make it a priority to invest in your personal health. Pick a window of time during the day and invest in yourself. I choose to start my day with either the gym or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This really sets the tone for the rest of my day. I tried in the past to “work it in” when I had a chance during the day and like many others, it just never happened. – Chris Van Dusen, Parcon
A. Eat Healthier, Cut Out Processed Foods
Eat a lighter lunch to keep your energy level high. Cut out gluten, processed foods and sugar. Go paleo if you can. Also, make sure you spend more time with family and friends for both your physical and emotional well-being. My wife seems to benefit from yoga, I prefer a light jog. Most importantly, make sure you take care of your body and you will be more productive. – Gene Swank, ScreenTime Solutions
A. Empty Your Water Bottle Six Times a Day
Honestly? Hydrate. People don’t drink enough water in general. Busy entrepreneurs drink even less. It’s easier to not feel the effects of dehydration when you’re in an air conditioned room in front of a computer. My advice? Spend the money on a really nice refillable bottle and fill it up six times a day. You’ll be amazed how it makes you feel and how it helps you think. Added bonus: no hangovers. – Kyle Kramer, Hüify
