13 Strategies to Stay Fit During Stressful Times (4 of 13)


Fulfill your weekly goal rather than stressing about a specific day.

We all know that there will be days that are busier than others
and our schedules will change. Donít feel bad if you miss a scheduled workout day. Just schedule to do it on your day off. It is not worth stressing over. Stress is mentally and physically fatiguing. Your results are based on a weekly basis. What you do daily physically and mentally is on a weekly basis. If you mess up one day or one meal, remember that the next day is a new day.

    I agree. I have been having a better attitude about that this year than I did last year.

13 Strategies to Stay Fit During Stressful Times (3 of 13)
BARTER DAYS

It's one thing to address our need for exercise. But when we're under stress, it's even more important to acknowledge the mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of what we're undergoing.

When you really don't feel like working out, if you just drag yourself there to do a little tiny bit, you usually end up doing the whole workout. And are glad you did.

"More important fun fact: I would rather myself or a client address the mental stuff and get in a short amount of exercise than not look at the mental stuff, plan an exercise, not do it, feel bad about not doing it, repeat the process multiple times and eventually give up."
Addressing the mental component is key to long-term success. And when you're stressed and stuck for time, creative problem solving (and a sense of humor) become key. No weights? No worries.


Perfection never happens in real life. We always have to do the best we can with what we have. And that's okay.


Have a GREAT weekend Sparkers!

13 Strategies to Stay Fit During Stressful Times (2 of 13)

SUPER POWER WALKS

Mind you, these aren't just any power walks. These are power walks with a difference, incorporating squats, pushups, triceps dips, planks, and walking lunges. There's a lot you can do with nothing more than a bench and some grass or a relatively smooth path.

"This gets all the muscle groups and helps you feel like you did something of value, not just a casual little walk. For people who are a bit more advanced, do interval runs between telephone poles. It's an easy way for people to pace themselves and each person can pick the number of poles for his or her personal work/rest ratio.

13 Strategies to Stay Fit During Stressful Times (1 of 13)

The road to real success happens when we stop trying to be perfect. You know how it goes. Life goes a little off track. And the pity party begins.
"Well, I can't do the prescribed workout today, so I might as well not exercise at all." This kind of all-or-nothing thinking enters all of our lives from time to time.

Use each day to make the best possible choice given to your limitations. One strategy that does work, breaking up the training over the course of the day. For example: Spend 5-10 minutes foam rolling and stretching in the morning, take a 15 minute brisk walk at lunch, and do 20 minutes of training anywhere else in the day Ė maybe an actual weight lifting session, maybe just some bodyweight work of pushups, pull-ups, plank variations, squat and lunge variations.
It's hard sometimes to find a whole hour. But anybody can manage 10 minutes.
