Today Longevity Exercise Physiology Drummoyne, Edgecliff, Marrickville, Bella VistaRandwickLindfield and Balmain discuss our tried and tested ways to get your health on track now that school has gone back!

Its 2021… already the start of February and the kids are back off to school this week. What does that mean for you? Take control of your life, sort out your schedule and start prioritising your health!

 

We understand that school holidays can be a chaotic time, and our kid’s wants, needs and schedules are often put before our health. But now that the kids are back into their daily routine at school… there is no excuse.

 

Here are a few tips that our exercise physiologists suggest you consider to get yourself back on track and putting yourself first!

 

  1. Early rising – waking up a few minutes early to do a home workout or telehealth exercise physiology session before the kids wake is always a good idea. This gives you time to yourself so you can give your full attention to exercise and your health and wellbeing.

 

  1. Take turns in the mornings/nights – Make a weekly schedule with your partner and take turns with who exercises and prepares for school. Whilst one takes care of getting the kids ready for school, the other attends their exercise session and is back in time for school drop off.

 

  1. Exercise at work, near work or over lunch – Joining a gym near your workplace can cut down a lot of time, whether it be before or after work. Walking, running or swimming during your lunch break can also be a good option if you struggle to make the time in the mornings or nights.

 

  1. Involve your kids in your exercise – walk to school together, go to the park together, ride your bikes together. This won’t only keep you more active, but will increase your children’s fitness too!

 

  1. ALWAYS use a schedule or diary – Make your exercise an appointment, book in for an exercise physiology session, class or just simply write “exercise” in your diary. Writing it down physically holds you accountable increasing the likelihood of actually completing the exercise.
