Making appointments with yourself is an effective behaviour change tool. Scheduling exercise, especially during the work day, increases your adherence and normalizes it as a regular part of the day.
We recently covered a study on intensive lifestyle intervention in the workplace during one of our Journal Club episodes.
A society focused on health would introduce policy to incentivize employers to build in exercise as part of their employees’ day. Until this happens, consider your workplace and schedule and how you can book exercise into your normal routine.
