Stress Management Through Simple Workouts

Stress Management Through Simple Workouts

The basic reason why people don’t have time to work out even when they are stressed is that they are caught up in a web of things that surround their lives. There is always too much to do and in too little time, so it is imperative that you would suggest resting or doing something else than to work out. Your primary excuse: you work so hard the whole week and you need rest on the weekend.

What you don’t realize is that dream of yours where you wake up one day with a ripped body and toned muscles doesn’t come true overnight. You’ll have to work for it. Even if you can spare half an hour from the whole 24 hour day, keep that half an hour consistent and you’ll find the change in your body and your mind.

Stress demotivates you and brings your productivity level down to at least 30%. You need to adhere to certain routines and rules at work which make it all the more reason to let loose when the weekend shows up. In that whole stressful shift, you have a maximum of 45 minutes to an hour to work out and get rid of that stench of stress.

First things first. Keep three things in mind when you decide to workout at your free times at work. If your office has a gym, awesome. That will save time and money. If not, fret not. Try and find a gym that is 5-10 minutes away from your workplace. Secondly, make sure that they offer 30-minute exercise classes and such that you can use in your free time. And lastly, make sure that they have a locker that fits your towel and gym bag.

After figuring that out, make sure that your diet is well enough for you to handle your workouts. Get smoothies. They are the best things ever. And here are the workouts that you can fit in that half hour slot to regain your passion for work and de-stressing yourself.

Stress Management Through Simple Workouts

Bodyweight squats
Begin by standing with your feet hip-width apart and bend down in a squat but don’t let your knees go past your toes. After making sure that your weight is on your heels, keep your chest up. Stand and then repeat.

Twists
Twists in yoga were created to cure the restlessness in a human body that triggers anxiety, frustration, and anger. 10 to 15 minutes every day of twists will help you control your anger and to relax your body. They work in a way that they align your breath with your mind so you can feel in control of your body and mind. That is when you feel in control of the anger. Twists remove stiffness from your body so you can relax.

Lord of the fishes pose
Sit on your hips and extend your right leg. Bend your left knee and keep your legs crossed. Exhale as you hold your left knee with your right arm and turn your head back. Pause for a few seconds and switch sides.

Corpse Pose
To begin, wear a casual but comfortable tracksuit or trousers and lay very still on the yoga mat. Breathe slowly and let your mind steer clear of all the negative emotions and thoughts. It will help you focus on the problem in a solution-oriented manner. Keep your legs a bit apart and your arms and hands resting on the sides in a relaxed mode? One by one, try to relax every muscle in your body and practice this every day.

Push-ups
Start in a high plank with your hands as wide as your shoulders. Bend your arms and lower your chest as close to the floor as possible. Get back in plank formation. Continue for 5-10 minutes.

Stress Management Through Simple Workouts

Kickboxing
This workout burns over 600 calories in half hour workout. Get a pair of boxing gloves and go 15-20 minute or a full 30-minute workout on the punching bag. Involve skipping rope to warm up.

Revolved side angle
Stand with your feet wide apart and make your left foot ground down on a 45 degrees angle. Bend your right knee and place your hands together in a prayer pose. Hold for few seconds and then switch sides.

Child pose
The purpose of this pose is to relax your mind like a child’s mind and make it more carefree and calm. You rest your hips on your feet and extend your arms ahead of you while your head rests on the matt. It will give you time to feel independent and less restless.

Wall squats
Lean against a wall with a dumbbell in each hand and bend your knees till your thighs are parallel to the floor. Keep your back straight and raise your arms. Bring them together, hold for 5 seconds and repeat for 10-15 reps.

Step mill workout

These workouts are easy to do in a 45-minute window and you’ll feel less stressed and less drained than usual. Gradually, you’ll get back on the fitness train and the level of stress in your life will go down immensely.
