When life gets busy, workouts are often the first thing to go. But while they may seem like the last thing you want to include in an already busy schedule, regular exercise can actually make you more confident in your ability to balance work and home life, according to a study published online earlier this year in Human Resource Management. Exercise helps us to psychologically detach from work and its related stress, say the researchers.
Try planning your workouts a week in advance. Not only will this help with scheduling, but you’ll also have a much-needed fitness break to look forward to.
