Can Having A Work At Home Business Really Help You To Lose Weight?
It is an astonishing claim to make but since working from home I have been able to lose any excess weight that I was carrying and adopt a more healthy lifestyle… But how does working from home help to keep me fit and healthy?
Having my own Online Home Business has created more time for me to be able to exercise and to eat more healthily and enjoy it. I used to always worry about how I could fit in exercise and lose weight. Now I don’t I pick and choose when to fit it in during the day and I now enjoy it.
One major change in my family life since working from home has been rescuing a four month old puppy dog, something that I could not have done previously due to having to work such long hours. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful cockapoo dog that I walk several times a day. It is amazing the pounds that I have shed simply by adding a few walks into my daily routine… Something that I would not have done prior to buying a dog. As I write this article he is keeping me company lying at my feet. This is one of the great rewards of having a home based business. Now i’m not saying that you should go out and buy a dog, far from it but it simply illustrates the extras you can add to your life when your working life changes.
I can now also plan exercise within my working day. I swim at least three times a week and have even started to jog. This was more difficult to do when working for an employer as I often needed to work lots of overtime to earn more money whereas now I can pick and choose any “overtime” that I want to work. Often I only need to work part time from home which allows me even more time to stay healthy and fit.
I eat a lot healthier as I no longer feel tempted to copy work colleagues less healthy lunch options. I no longer attend as many meetings as I used to and therefore don’t feel obliged to indulge in the calorie laden lunches and snacks that were often provided. Working from home helps me to stay disciplined with my meal choices as I avoid keeping unhealthy food in the cupboard.
The other great advantage of working from home is that I am now able to fully enjoy hobbies that I have such as gardening. Having a home business allows me to be able to vary my working hours to suit my own requirements. Therefore if the weather is dry I can take full advantage by catching up with my gardening, taking in the fresh air with no stress just pleasure. I can then make up my working hours either early in the morning or late in the evening or work a longer day when the weather is less favourable. This also applies to other outdoor pursuits that I enjoy such as surfing and cycling particularly when the children are off on school holidays.
That’s the great advantage of being my own boss namely being able to pick and choose the hours and the salary that I want.
It is true that any individual can stay fit and active whether they work for themselves or for an employer. However, from my own experience I have found that I have managed to lose any excess weight and maintain that weight much easier since staring my own online business as I now can make more time to exercise by working the hours I want to based upon both my family and my individual needs as opposed to being governed by the needs of an employer or work colleagues. I also find it much easier to discipline myself to eat healthier. However, if you work from home you have to be disciplined ensure you complete the work necessary to keep the money rolling in.
Having my home based business has allowed me much freedom…Not least the freedom of being able to own a dog. He has been a wonderful addition to the family and has added an extra fun way of shedding any extra pounds.
There are many working from home opportunities to suit everyone’s needs. One of the easiest ones to start is a home business online as this type of business operates twenty four hours a day allowing you to accommodate exercise and any interests into your working day.
It really can provide the perfect work/home balance and can provide the flexibility to help you to stay fit and healthy in the process. Losing weight can be fun. The more you begin to enjoy exercise the more weight you will lose whilst working from home earning the money your deserve.
