Women Fitness|January/February 2020
Life can be busy in this modern world of work, home, family, friends, and shopping.

Sometimes it almost feels like you need to schedule sleep in order to fit it into your life as you fall down from exhaustion at different times each night. Although there is no easy solution to fitting everything you need to do into the 24 hours you have been allotted each day, there are ways to help you take care of yourself and stay fit – even if you are busy.
