Quick look answer –
Not the morning. Or afternoon. Or evening. Rather, the easiest time is right after work.
The target audience for this post are people who can’t stay consistent, like me.
So specific times of day like the morning or afternoon or evening, will not work.
Why right after work/school?
You’re up and running already. Your blood is pumping. You’re already active. Socializing, filing papers, doing homework, walking etc. After work is the happiest time of day for most of us. Best time of day to make a healthy decision.
Whereas a couple hours after work, you’ll have your feet up with a bag of chips watching Netflix or you’ll have a bottle of wine next to you with the news on.
We both know we’re not getting up once we sit down on that sofa.
And why should we? Relax!
So…how much do I have to do?
Now, the beauty of it. That’s totally up to you!
Notice how general I made the title: get fit.
This could include buying a piece of fruit after work or eating a couple carrots.
Hell, this could include walking to the second floor of your building and then taking the elevator to your apartment on the 12th floor.
Everyday, after work, do something/anything that you can be proud of.
Afterwards you won’t get your daily dose of guilt as you munch on snacks.
And definitely not on weekends. Weekends is our time for relaxing 😉
So stop forcing yourself to get up early in the morning to go for a run.
Stop trying to live like a professional athlete or fitness trainer.
We’re not consistent nor fit (yet) so let’s stop taking ten steps forward.
Figure out what works for you and play around with it, there’s no deadline here!
