As business owners, we find ourselves focusing and devoting A LOT of time to growing. At the end of the day, many contractors find they have eaten the easiest and fastest thing with little concern for how that will affect our future. Ross Aubrey, owner of Higher Purpose Fitness, discusses how to stay healthy when running your business.
Common excuses contractors have when it comes to taking the time to exercise:
"I have had an injury in the past, so I can't exercise." There are plenty of variations of exercises that you can do that won't re-injure or irritate past problems. There is always a way.
"I work out in the field all day, isn't that enough exercise?" Focus on intensity instead of duration. You don't need to spend an hour on a treadmill. An intense 5-10 minute can be much more effective than a long, drawn out workout.
How do we fuel our bodies when we're on the run all day and don't have a lot of time? Get in tune with if you're really hungry and make sure you're properly hydrated (at least 1 ounce of water per pound of body weight). When you're hydrated, you won't get false hunger signals. High-quality fat and protein sources will keep you full longer.
