Think You Don’t Have Enough Time to Exercise? Try These 4 Quick Ways to Work Fitness into the Busiest of Days
We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for.
