    Doctors and other healthcare professionals usually have busy schedules, in fact, it has been reported that about 80% of doctors are either over extended or working above capacity. Many times, they have to multi-task to be able to accomplish their many set targets.

    In view of this, these doctors and healthcare professionals have very little time for themselves talk more of taking time out of their busy day to exercise. However, exercise can be regarded as the best medicine for doctors, healthcare professionals and every other person in other fields of life.

    Ranging from reducing back pain to protecting against depression, heart disease, several cancers, Type II diabetes and more, regular exercise is a very critical component of healthy living. It is about time we found different ways to bring exercise into doctors' exam rooms and medical schools across the country to help make exercising easy to accomplish.

    High Intensity Interval Training workouts for example include intervals of high-effort work, which is immediately followed by typically shorter intervals of rest. This alternating effect helps the muscles and cardiovascular system to work a bit harder than they would when they do cardio alone.

    Cardio on the other hand can be done by people with lots of time and self-loathing. It is also a perfect routine for busy doctors because it can be done anywhere, anytime with no equipment at all. Even if you have just 10 minutes, you can quickly do a HIIT workout session.

    Air squats, mountain climbers, lunges, high knees, push-ups are also examples of workouts that should be considered. You can play with the structure, cardio equipment, incorporate weights or different movements as you deem fit. If you get bored easily, try changing your movements or incorporate fitness equipment, this is a great way to keep things interesting.

    If you are the type of person who enjoys to run and not necessarily getting anywhere, you can try out workouts on treadmills, run and then walk, or any other available cardio device, including stair climbers, rowers and elliptical. Just ensure the machine speed is not set too high. Jumping rope is another great, portable and highly affordable option.

    Essentially, the importance of exercise in our daily lives cannot be over-emphasized hence, it is necessary to include regular exercise even in our busy lives as we go along.
