How do you take time out for exercise after 10-11 hours in office?Jan 8
Can someone share his plan? How did you find time for workout?
It's not that i can not find. I don't think I will have motivation to do that daily. Please suggest some fun things to keep yourself active. I recently started biking to work and it is fun.
- Capital One CapitalTwoProbably would be healthier to not spend 11 hours straight in the office. Where the heck do you work?
Depending on your commute you can try walking or biking to work. It’s a great way to get some basic exercise in without having to go out of your way. You might also consider a walk or jog every couple hours to break up that long stretch in the office. Maybe a treadmill desk or at least a standing desk.

If you struggle with the idea of going to gym after long day in the office, then just start your day with gym. This allows you to get it out of the way and you won't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. Then if work drags long or something else comes up, you won't have to stress about skipping the gym.
- If exercise is important to you, you will find a way to make time. I don’t know what the details of your work situation is, but it seems like if you’re working straight for 10-11 hours a day, it’s very unsustainable. Maybe try to reduce that down? If not, you can find 30 min a day to do some high intensity interval training maybe.
- Depends on your personal goal. It’s different for everyone. Is your career your biggest priority right now? Are you getting burnt out? Do you get enough sleep? Are you passionate about what you’re doing? Are you happy about the time spent at work? If not, try to cut it down. Reduce distractions and context switching. I don’t know what the “appropriate” time to spend because I don’t know what the requirements of your work are and what your goals are.Jan 170
- Amazon 1700zuluWalking meetings if they are informal. I also take 5-10 minutes out of every hour for an ergonomic break and walk around outside. On a good day I get 10-18k steps in and an hour or two of aggregate physical activity. One trick I learned when I was in Seattle was to schedule meetings in buildings a half mile or so away once a day or so. Adding 1km of fast walking helps a lot.

- What helps for me is to go in with the mentality that my week day workouts will be easy. I start slow and then if I feel good I’ll usually end up doing a more intense workout once I’m started. I save my long runs for the weekends.
You don’t need every workout to be crazy, especially when starting out. A lot of professional runners recommend that a large percentage of your runs are at an easy conversational pace, where you can hold a conversation. These runs are for increasing base mileage, and are a lot easier to get yourself started on mentally
