I work long hours and when I get home I don’t feel like exercising, even though I know I would feel better if I did. Working less is not an option. Any suggestions?

These days, it seems like everyone is working more hours and using the old “no-time-to-exercise” excuse more than ever. But what if you could actually work out at work?
While you won’t get to the Olympics this way, you can do stretching, muscle-strengthening, and even short stints of aerobic exercises right at your desk (or maybe in a vacant conference room or stairwell). After all, doctors say any amount of exercise helps — the benefits are cumulative.
Some other exercises that might work with your schedule are:
- Doing a few simple stretches during the day.
- Taking the stairs instead elevator a few times during the week..
- Taking a ten to fifteen minute walk .during lunch.
