It's something we all feel... how do you best achieve that work / life balance? For me I know it involves A LOT of scheduling and planning. And according to this article it also involves adding something else to your already busy schedule.
Yes... adding to your crazy schedule can help you better balance it. YOU MUST EXERCISE. My major excuse for not exercising is that I don't have the time. Between my work and my family...and the two hours I give myself each week to see friends and just be "Jana" (not Mom, not wife... just me) I feel like I am tapped out on time. But according to this article by adding in exercise you.
Why this works...
1. You actually detach from work.
2. Exercise makes you feel better about yourself.
3. By making exercise a priority you are a good health role model for your family/ children.
4. Exercise improves your ability to focus on tasks later in the day, making you more productive at work and home.
So... basically, NO MORE EXCUSES.
