“I don't have time.” is a more commonly heard statement that “Good morning” these days. Professionals are witnessing increments in their wages, and their waistlines too. Work seems to have only gotten more taxing over the past few years, and people are busier than ever. Yet, even with our hectic schedules, we still want to have time to fit in activities that improve our fitness, relieve stress, prevent chronic health problems and generally just make us feel better. While office spaces make sure that their employees must move around the least to get things done, it's also a curse for your body, and before you know it, you've added 10 more kilos and an annoying belly to your frame.
Workouts don’t need to be hours long. Try to find a time every day where you can get in a quick workout. Many high-intensity workouts only span about 20–30 minutes.

You can go for a walk while you park your car. Just park your car and walk and decide how many minutes you will walk. Choose a length of time you know you can have. Do not worry about how short that period is, just keep moving until you reach it. 2-5 minutes each day is a great start. Pay no attention to how far you want to walk. What matters more is that you walk for a longer period. Walking fast and farther will only come with experience.
