Keeping fit when you have an office job can be quite difficult in general. However, it is quite important for a number of reasons why we should try to do some sort of exercise when sitting down all day at the London office.
It is well known that having an office job is not exactly physically strenuous but it can be quite exhausting for the brain as we tend to concentrate more for example when reading or writing. Unbelievably, this in turn can be even more tiring for some people more than others making them feel even more lifeless when getting home from work. There are many conclusions that have be considered of why this happens but one thing that can maybe help is keeping fit out of working hours. The question though, can we be bothered to do it.
When first starting to work in an office space, whether it is in a London office rental or somewhere in England, it is very common to lose track of what exercise we are doing during the day. Rather than taking note that we are actually reducing our fitness in this working environment, in reality we are actually doing even less and therefore making us slouch around more and take it easy as we are more tired. This is because working in an office unknowingly stops a majority of our daily exercise completely making us less fit so that normal activities that we do seem more tiring thus making us feel more drained. It is a vicious cycle really and surprisingly is totally undetected by us at all.
Adding some discipline to our life’s routine can really make a difference in keeping fit but it is a case of us alone who can actually drive ourselves to do it. When working in an office, many people tend to fall into the routine of doing nothing regarding exercise and the less we do the more harder it will be to get ourselves out of the deep rut we have created for ourselves. This guide below will start from the basics when starting a fitness regime and it will also go though some simple measures that can make a difference in our lives.
We all want to keep fit but unfortunately, it is probably second nature for us to do nothing about it. One key point to make when starting to keep fit is to take it slowly as exercise should be done responsibly. Another major key point is to make sure that we are healthy enough do any type of exercise in the first place. It is highly recommended to have your doctor checking you over first before you start.
Anyway, now that the essentials are out of the way let us start from the beginning. Firstly, let us set some goals of what we want to achieve i.e. take a walk once a week and build to 3 times a week. This can be a good start to get us used to things and as mentioned before, try not to overdo it especially if you have not exercised for a while. As time goes on, walks can easily be increased in distance and speed so that more work is done on your body but we have to build ourselves up to that level.
Once we have got used to exercising, it could be a good idea to introduce other things that we can do to the week. These can include anything that you have done in the past such as cycling, swimming, tennis, football, netball, jogging, aerobics, or going to the gym. Again, try not to cram everything you can do in a week, pick one activity and then build up. The last thing you would want to do is completely exhaust yourself and put yourself off doing exercise at all. We all want to do more at the beginning but the key to fitness is to be patient as it takes time and routine to build ourselves up to a good fitness level anyway.
Now a nice little schedule is on the go and we are getting used to it, you would then probably feel the difference this activity is making and this is not just the fitness but also on our wellbeing too. Regular exercise not only helps improve our fitness but it can also revitalize our minds too. This in turn makes us feel less tired at the office and enables us to cope better with everyday activities or tasks.
So why not try some exercise yourself, maybe you will not notice the difference in one day but if it is continued over a period I am sure you will notice a difference in how you feel in the long run.
