Padel for the Busy Bee: Fitting Matches into an Overwhelming Schedule
You’re not alone if you’ve ever tried to squeeze a padel match into an already hectic schedule. We live in a fast-paced world where time is now the most valuable resource.
For the keyword ‘no time to exercise,’ there are over a billion search results. So, if you’re feeling a bit behind, know that you’re not alone.
Whatever piques our curiosity will necessarily take time. As well as our focus. There are times when we have so many things we want to accomplish that we end up being overworked. Unfortunately, sweating it out is frequently the first thing to go when this occurs. And everything for nothing.
How can you squeeze padel games into your hectic schedule?
Physical well-being, in my opinion, is the foundation of a full, successful, happy, and enjoyable existence. It gives us energy, opens doors, and keeps us healthy and powerful throughout our lives. That’s why the question isn’t how to fit exercise into a hectic schedule, but how to make time for it.
Choose a consistent match time
Make sure you play padel when you don’t have any other commitments. People I know like exercising early in the morning or late at night. The advantage is that these hours are usually free of time-sensitive obligations.
Get some fresh air
Combine leisure and exercise. Take up enjoyable hobbies that require you to work out while having pleasure. When you want to work out but don’t feel like going to the padel court, this combo might assist.
Exercise in the open air, outdoor padel courts are now all in the rave especially with COVID restricting our activities. When going to a padel club often is difficult for you, adopting a more active lifestyle may help. This means setting up meet-ups with friends as padel matches. This is another habit that must be formed so that you won’t be mentally drained by thinking that playing padel is a task you have to do.
Set-up short and sweet matches
Make a hit-and-run plan. Make a 20-minute or 30-minute quick padel sesh. If you have a limited amount of time, you may need to adjust your strategy so that you can still squeeze in a few drills here and there.
Organize your schedules. If you’re going with a buddy, make sure your calendars are aligned ahead of time so one of you won’t be unable to go. It might be challenging to motivate oneself to go alone when you’re accustomed to going with someone else. If you don’t have a partner, have a backup plan in place.
Anything you want to do, do it with intention. Sometimes we get overwhelmed adding so many things to our schedules and we end up half-assing these tasks or events. Prioritize and make sure you get plenty of good rest.
