Make time for or prioritise exercise and you will reap the benefits especially for your weight!

When it comes to it, weight loss can be achieved by simply consuming a healthy, adequate diet and engaging in a sufficient exercise programme. Are you following a tailor-made workout? If not and you would like to, chat to a physical trainer at your local gym.

Morning workout

In the meantime, try to make some time for exercise. You could perhaps wake up an hour earlier and go for a brisk walk or run, go to the gym or even engage in some exercises in the comfort of your own home.

Working out during the afternoon

If you work from home, you may have the flexibility to adjust your daily workout to a time that suits you and is more convenient for you on a particular day. Remember to apply/reapply sunscreen if going outdoors.

If you are at work, you can consider spending some of your lunchbreak exercising. If it is not feasible to go to gym due to time constraints, simply go for a jog outdoors. Be sure to take comfortable clothing and shoes along with you in the morning.

Late afternoon workout

Alternatively, you could exercise at the end of the day, when most of your daily tasks and activities are over. Take this time out for yourself. It can be healing to your mind by helping to reduce stress, whilst giving you the added benefit of calorie burning and weight loss.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
