How to Break the Cycle of Weight Gain

People who regularly exercise commonly feel the rise of their energy levels. But this may not be the case of people who are overworked and under exercised. The tiredness and stress they feel will eventually take a toll against their bodies. If you think that you are neglecting your regular exercise sessions and you feel that you don’t have the time or the energy to catch up, then it might be time to step back and take a look at what is happening to your lifestyle. To help you, here are some important tips:

Assess the situation.

You don’t have the time to take care of yourself. You feel tired. You feel that you are overworking. Amidst all these realizations, have you considered if it is really worth it? Ask yourself where you are going. Evaluate your goals.

Identify the root of the problem.

Why are you overworked? Is it because your job is too demanding? Or is it because you are stressed? If so, are you stressed because you are rushing or are you rushing because you are stressed? Better make sure to point out the root of the problem so you would know how to solve your situation.

Take the time off.

Work won’t end. And that is a fact. You deserve a much needed break. One or two days away from work, your cell phone and laptop will do great wonders for yourself. Take the time to relax. Catch up with sleep if you want.

Restart your exercise routine.

Try doing short exercise routines. Do not pressure yourself into doing your usual exercises. It would only leave you feeling tired and worse, stressed out. Start from scratch. Work out your schedule so you would have time for brisk walking or maybe, jogging.

Replenish yourself.

Drink lots of water. Eat fruits and vegetables as often as you can. Stick to a sleeping schedule. Make sure that you take vitamins regularly. Avoid skipping meals.

Check your outlook.

Have you been feeling a little cranky lately? Do you always tend to harbor negative thoughts and possibilities? Relax. Being over worked and under exercised can make you feel like that. Try to veer away from causing yourself stress. Smile often. Carry a positive aura with you every day. Appreciate little things around you such as the quiet office jokes you always share with you colleagues over meetings or discussions.
