Best tips for keeping fit & healthy whilst doing a busy job?
  1. Build healthy & fitness into your lifestyle, make it a natural habit vs a chore. Make it a part of what defines you as a person.  Don’t be ‘on or off the bandwagon’ and sacrifice health & fitness for work.  You will reap the rewards in your career of incorporating it into your life – all of the most successful people in business have a health & fitness regime.
  1. Plan the week out where possible and be accountable – you ALWAYS have a choice to some degree. If things change, no stress though, role with it and recover the following day – don’t write the week off.
  1. Consistency is key – have a plan that works for you and is sustainable. Be realistic – banning foods / killing yourself with too many gym sessions isn’t going to work long term – short term fixes and fad diets don’t work!
  1. Don’t sit still for too long and get those steps in! Make sure you get up and move / get a standing desk / have a walking meeting outside / ensure you get your 10K steps in a day at a minimum.
