Gary’s Answer

Hi,
good question, my wife and I used to work full time and run a business at night and on weekends...it was challenging but we tried to find ways like preparing meals ahead of time on Sundays when we had a little time off...I/we also rode our bikes when we could which was not only healthy but relaxing, you can always find some time to take a short 15-30 min walk and there are a lot of workouts you can stream online or on TV now like Leslie Sansone's walking workouts or other streaming cardio workouts. My wife would just turn on some music and dance for 30 mins for exercise and stress relief.
Good luck!

Thomas’s Answer

I agree with Helen Shanahan: Plan ahead. It is very easy to fall out of a routine. With my work we generally work 35-40 hour weeks, but during certain training events we will work 120+ hours in 7-9 days. After falling out of my routine I realized planning ahead was the option. It can be monotonous, but preparing meals on a free day (I did this on a Sunday prior to a full work week) for the rest of the week makes it easy not to sacrifice health for convenience. As far as physical health goes, running as well as working out calisthenics are probably the least time consuming, and able-to-do-anywhere exercises.

Hello Tiffany,
I know how difficult it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle when work/school is consuming the majority of your time. From my own experience, as I used to work full time during my last year of college, I can guarantee you that managing your time is the key. I know it’s easier said than done, but take a Saturday afternoon, plan ahead your whole week and try to stick to the schedule, not only you will avoid a stressful week, but you will acquire an invaluable habit. Another thing you should not miss is to always pack a lunch whenever you leave home because nothing is better than a homemade meal. If possible, keep a gym bag in your car, but just like Helen said, exercise comes in various forms, like taking the bike instead.


Good luck.

Helen’s Answer

Plan ahead. Plan what you will eat and ensure you have it stocked up at home or know where you can get it during your break. Exercise comes in various forms. It doesn't have to be a 5 mile run or an hour at the gym. Just taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walk instead of talking the bus, if its not too far etc. I have very limited time and actually do squats while I brush my teeth!
