How To Fit Exercise Into Your Routine (No Matter How Busy You Are)
如何将健身融入日常生活(无论你有多么忙碌)

We all know by now that maintaining an active lifestyle should be one of our top priorities in life. Only by taking care of ourselves do we stand a chance of being the kind of person we strive to be on the job, at home with our loved ones and in our communities. But that doesn't mean it's easy.


现在大家都知道,生命中首要的是维持一种积极的生活方式。只有照料好自己,我们才有机会成为那个我们在工作上、在家庭中和我们所爱的人以及在社会里,竭尽全力想要成为的人。但这并不是说照料自己很容易。


Work, in particular, can get in the way of working out -- in fact, there is a big paradox going on, and it becomes more obvious the more challenging (and exciting!) a job gets: On one hand, we struggle to find time to work out; on the other, we can't afford to not exercise because it is integral to sustained success.

工作,是最会影响到健身的——事实上,这是个很矛盾的事情。而当一件工作越具挑战性(也越刺激)的时候,这个矛盾也就越明显:一方面,我们努力找时间参加运动;而另一方面,我们不得不锻炼,因为它是持续性成功的重要组成部分。

Here are six tips for how to fit exercise into your daily routine -- no matter how busy you are with work. 
这里有六条如何将健身融入日常生活的小窍门——无论你有多么日理万机。

1、Work Out Efficiently
1、高效率地锻炼


Pick a workout form that you can do almost anywhere, whether you're traveling or getting home from the office late. Ideally, this will be a form of exercise that doesn't require much preparation (maybe save the wind surfing for the weekend) and that accomplishes significant physical gains in a short period of time (sorry, golfers). High-intensity interval training, Tabata training, bodyweight exercises and running are all great choices.


挑选一种你可以随时进行的运动项目——不管是在旅行途中还是加班晚归的时候。最好是不需要太多准备的(风帆冲浪什么的还是周末再去吧),而且要能在较短时间内取得显著的健身效果(抱歉,高尔夫球友们)。高强度间歇性训练、Tabata训练法、体重锻炼还有跑步,都是非常不错的选择。


2、Cater To Your Own Likes And Dislikes
2、迎合个人喜恶


By now you might be thinking, “I hate running!” (or Tabata, or what have you) -- and that's okay. We each need to be realistic and to know ourselves. One person's running is another person's yoga, weight training or dance. Flexing your self-discipline muscles is often necessary when it comes to exercise, but make it easier on yourself by choosing a form of exercise that fits your lifestyle, personality and taste. Not sure what you love to do? Don't be afraid to experiment with different forms of exercise until you find what works best for you.


现在你可能正在想:“我讨厌跑步!”(或者Tabata,或者其他的运动)——那完全可以。我们需要实事求是,了解自身情况。别人选择跑步,你可以选择瑜伽、体重训练或者舞蹈。在锻炼这件事上,显示你的自律通常是有必要的。但是选择运动形式的时候,大可以放轻松一点,选择适合你生活方式、个性特点以及个人品味的项目。还不确定你喜欢什么?不要害怕,大胆尝试不同类型的运动项目吧,直到你找到最适合的那个。

3. Use Competitions As Motivation

以竞争为动力

When it comes to being successful at work, collaboration is key. But when we're trying to motivate ourselves to exercise on a regular basis (and with enough intensity for it to really matter), competition has its merits. Today, it's possible to find a competition suitable to your skill level in almost any sport. Whether you're elite, beginner or somewhere in between, there's something for all of us. Sign up, set a goal and notice what it does to you -- odds are good it might be the push you need to keep yourself in the game.


要在工作获得成功,合作是关键。但是当我们试图激励自己定期进行锻炼(是否有足够的强度又会成为真正的问题),竞争就显出了它的价值。如今,几乎在任何运动项目中,都能找到与你能力水平相当的对手。不管你是高手还是菜鸟,亦或介于两者之间,有些东西我们都需要。设定一个目标,并且认识到它对你来说意味着什么——有困难是不错的,它或许会成为使你继续坚持下去的推动力。


4. Make A Schedule And Commit To It

制定计划 承诺执行


One of the most cited reasons to skip a workout goes something like this: "I am just too busy at work today; I can't make my yoga class." I call BS! If you unexpectedly had to pick up your child from school and had no back-up plan, how would you deal with the situation? Cancel an internal meeting? Take some work home with you? Do some hard prioritizing? The truth is that when we really need to, we get out of the office at the time that is necessary. Make a schedule (write it down if it helps!), stick to it and remind yourself that working out is a priority worth keeping.


逃避一次锻炼的最常用借口之一是:“今天的工作实在是太忙了,赶不上我的瑜伽课了。”我说这些是屁话!如果你意外地不得不去接孩子放学,而且没有其他后备计划,你会怎样处理这个状况?取消一次内部会议?带一些工作回家做?做一个艰难的决定?(直译:列一下轻重缓急?)事实是,当我们真心需要的时候,我们会在必要的时机离开办公室。列一个时间表(如果有用的话,请写下来!),严格执行,并且提醒自己健身是一件值得坚持的首要任务。

 

5. Track Your Activity Levels

追踪活动水平

 

“If you don't measure it, it doesn't exist.” It's a slight exaggeration, yes, but this old saying really has some truth to it, especially when it comes to exercise. Make a note in your calendar every time you work out, and add up your workout sessions at the end of each week, month and year so you can monitor your progress and identify areas for improvement. Measuring your activity levels (and ideally keeping notes on your progress) can help you to stay on track and realize when you're slipping before you've completely lost the habit.


“不可测,即不存在。”没错,这有点夸张,但是这句俗话还是有些说到点子上的,尤其是放到锻炼身体上来说。每次运动以后在你的日历上记录一下,然后在每周统计一下你的运动总量,月复月,年复年,这样就可以整体把握你的运动进度,并且很容易找到需要提高的地方。衡量你的运动水平(最好是随时记录进度)能够帮助你保持正轨,在完全抛弃运动习惯之前能意识到自己什么时候在偷懒。


6.Choose Something Over Nothing
有总比没有好


You don't need an hour -- or even 30 minutes -- to get a complete, effective workout. And some exercises is virtually always better than none. Heck, even seven minutes can make a difference! We can always find a few free minutes in our day (yes, we can!). With an effective program, and done frequently enough, short and speedy workouts can do wonders to both the body and mind. Squeeze in fitness wherever you are and no matter how much time you have with bodyweight exercises or, with the help of apps, pre-programmed short workouts -- you can even do some exercises at your desk!


你并不需要一个小时——甚至都不用30分钟——就可以完成一次完整、有效的锻炼。而进行了一些运动总比完全没有运动要好。嘿,就算7分钟也能有所不同!我们总是能在一天中找到那么几分钟的空余时间(是的,我们可以!)有效的项目、经常的进行,简短迅速的运动对身心都能创造奇迹。挤出时间健身吧,无论你在哪里,不管你有多少时间;进行体重训练吧,还可以在手机应用的帮助下,预先设定简短的运动——甚至就在办公桌边也能做运动!
