Yes, we can take steps to balance out the stress we face at work, like by exercising. I know it's hard to even find time to sweat it out but we always have a choice and we can make time if we really want to. So how?
Bike to work
Aside from contributing to lessening the number of vehicles and commuters on the road, biking to work and back is already an exercise in itself. Take the versatile Link B7 from Tern for a fun and different urban transport. It's one of Taiwan's best brands that bear the Taiwan Excellence seal, assuring customers of the product's superior quality.

No, not run away from work. Run. Or jog or walk, whatever pace you can take. Running can help clear your mind, regroup your thoughts, and reenergize yourself for the next day. If the unpredictable weather messes up your running plans, you can always do your thing indoors--on the Johnson's Adventure 5 treadmill.

If running or biking are not your thing (as you probably dislike sweating), swimming provides a fun alternative to exercising. By swimming I mean doing laps and not simply wading in shallow water, so wearing goggles are recommended. And for that, try the waterproof Vision & Vision Jr. goggles that with quality optic lens and multi-colored frames.

Lift some weights
Being static makes the body accumulate pent-up energy. Let that energy loose by working out, however simply. Go for some do-it-yourself workout at home, better if with dumbbells. Ucheer offers compact and portable kinetic energy dumbbell that combines muscle training and body kinetic energy. Those interested in weightlifting can check Victory’s 5-kilogram bumper plate, which combines durable rubber and plastic in its design for a quality and convenient workout.
