If you're working in a highly demanding and stressful job, you probably "wish" you had the time and energy to exercise
If you're working in a highly demanding and stressful job, you probably "wish" you had the time and energy to exercise. You're not alone. According to the findings of a new study by Dr. Nicola Payne of Middlesex University, UK, it's not uncommon for people working in high-stress jobs to feel unable to set aside time for regular exercise. These workers usually have little time to spare or are in need of recuperation time at the end of a long day-time that others with less demanding jobs might use for regular workouts. Based on the study's findings, Dr. Payne suggests a need for employers to actively encourage their employees to exercise by helping them implement an exercise program and increase confidence in their ability to stick to a regular fitness regime.
