Do stressful days at the office have an effect on your well-being?

Does it have a negative impact on your life? Does it affect your mood, relationships, and ability to exercise?

Two goals that everybody aspires in life are health and wealth. But to be honest, there are only a percentage of us who really care about making a fortune, and nine times out of ten; it will be a stressful ordeal to get there. Most people would like to lead a happy, less stressful life for the duration that they are here. So how do we balance our personal and work life goals?

When we think about the basics of a healthy lifestyle, the first things that come to mind are never missing meals, keeping them healthy, working out daily, and getting quality sleep.  This is easier said than done, when we constantly have tasks on our mind that cause stress, and we claim to have “no time”.

As a result of stress, we may never experience the qualities of life I’ve just stated above.

So, how do we make time?

As stress is the result of meeting deadlines and trying to stay on top of negative outcomes, there is no point adding fitness in your schedule if its just going to accelerate these feelings.

This is why I am going to explain the benefit to you of following a consistent fitness program at home. This could be with a personal trainer or simply staying tuned to a progressive routine online.

Here are some reasons why exercising at home can reduce stress in your life:

1. Less Expensive – There are many costs involved when venturing to and back from the local fitness club. A monthly subscription for a gym can prove to be very expensive annually and that’s just the start. There is also added fees for registering, acquiring a fitness specialist, or any other refreshments at the club including snacks and towel service. Your journey to the gym will also cost you an arm and a leg on transport costs. Fitness at home gives access to healthy meals and less travel costs. Use up your groceries and save some extra money by commuting less.

2. Less Crowds, Less Stress – As the saying goes, your health is your wealth.  Commuting to many different places during the day adds a lot of mental stress. This is due to the constant negative energy of moving through swarming crowds. Getting to the gym, you may be experiencing the hectic affects of the city till late in the evening. By getting home sooner to exercise, you can avoid longer hours of hustle and bustle in the city. This can benefit your mental health.

3. Saving Time Is Money– Time is especially valuable for young professionals – a workforce that carries a lot of expectations on their shoulders and is usually subject to tight deadlines. We should always look to save time if possible. By having a personal trainer come to your home, you can save anywhere from 30-90 minutes per day by cutting travel time. This time can be better spent looking after that project you’ve been working on, or even yourself! Maybe some quality time with friends or family would give a chance to reduce stress.

4. Financial Health – More money in your pocket also means less stress. By budgeting your fitness routine at home and not joining the gym, you now have access to more funds and more flexibility. This can be used to pay off debt or contribute to upcoming events. This sort of planning decreases financial stress.

5. More Privacy – Beginners to fitness can find working out very daunting and uncomfortable. This could be for a variety of reasons, one being the heir of judgement and being observed by the public. Being conscious of the public can be very stressful when trying to make progress with your health. Being in the comfort of your own home, you have the freedom to make your own choices. Wear what you like and play your own records. Any discussion with your fitness professional is kept private in your won home.

6. Split the Costs – If you are feeling financially concerned, you can plan to budget even more. Try splitting the costs with a friend or family member. Get other people involved your sessions and give yourself more motive to perform and save more costs.
