To be a lawyer is to be busy. It is not a relaxing job; it is full of stress, pressure, and high expectations. With all this responsibility, leisure time is a hot commodity. For some people, exercising is not a desirable way to spend it. Mental exhaustion is certainly something that can be felt physically, but, sadly, that does not equate to physical activity. Remaining physically active is a daunting challenge when work takes a large portion of your time. When you finally leave work, all you want to do is go home, eat a nice dinner, and transform into a couch creature. Unfortunately, the habit of shuffling back and forth from work to home with no activity will take its toll on your body. The human body is meant for movement and physical stimulation. If we do not provide it with this, well, the body goes to waste. How can you sneak in this exercise?
