How do folks maintain a regular workout schedule? I’m transitioning from an opps role to an account team and literally had no energy or time to work out all week! All tips welcomed🙃

I get up early and do it in the morning. If you are not a morning person, schedule yourself out for lunch and go to the gym. It’s important to take care of your body. You’ll have more energy throughout the day and feel more productive.

Yes to this. It’s my saving grace, I’m not a morning person, but since my agency is a little flexible with start times I’m able to avoid the morning gym rush and still get in a quick workout.

Prioritize your time better. What we do is stupid. Take care of yourself

If you don’t make it a priority, you can be certain no one else will

Amen to morning workouts! It can take a couple weeks to get used to scraping yourself out of bed that early but agree that it makes me feel a lot better throughout the day. I’m also part of a few running groups that meet at 7/7:30. Feels like a combination of social and fitness, which keeps me motivated to go.

Welllll, mornings work if you’re not a single parent who has to get your kid to school, then hop the train to work right after. Wish I had a salary that supported me Ubering to and from my gym during lunch.

Try to find a way to workout in your home. A half hour of morning yoga and can do wonders for your mind, body and soul. If yoga isn’t your thing, then figure out a workout that suits you. We all have busy schedules...just need to find the right balance to get time for yourself.

The morning is the best. Only way to keep a consistent routine

As a parent I completely commiserate that mornings are impossible. But most gyms are open till 10 o’clock at night. I’ve gotten into the nine to 10 o’clock routine. I do dinner and help put my kids to bed and then I go to the gym. I get a great nights sleep because I steam and shower afterwards and I’m completely relaxed. Try it

Fit it in when you can I do some mornings some lunch and some night, just try and get it in at least 3 times a week. Sometimes I’ll do odd time like 2 when I k ow I have an hour free. Just try and find the time when you can. I also picked a gym super close to the office, that helps.

Lots of yayo.

I’m in the UK and applying for a job. I’ve seen on Glassdoor someone has posted a salary of £56k for my role and another for £70k in the job a level up to mine. When it comes to speaking to HR when they inevitably ask for my expectations what would be best to say? I’m thinking of £60k, but I haven’t had much experience with negotiation. Don’t want to go too much and get crossed off. Thanks

I’m working on my application for a role at Google. Is there a particular time frame from the time the posting appeared, within which I should target submitting the application? E.g., the position got posted on LinkedIn on Monday and it may take a week to network a bit, complete the application and submit. Do you think I should rather try to submit it earlier? Is there specific time, from the time of posting, till which they typically accept the applications? Thanks! 🙏🏻
