Rest and Consistency

Well balanced workouts usually give at least one rest day each week and there are others that actually have three to four days of rest. 

Regardless of how many rest days are actually in your program, your body will make good use of the rest dat and as long as your faigue is managed well then you'll feel fresher and more relaxed going back to your workout.

What matters most is that you're the one who gets to decide when you'll get back on the horse.

We know that spending hour after hour sitting down isn't good for us , but just how much exercise is needed to counteract the negative health impact of a day at a desk? A 2020 study suggests about 30-40 minutes per day of building up a sweat should do it.

Up to 40 minutes of "moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity" every day is about the right amount to balance out 10 hours of sitting still, the research says – although any amount of exercise or even just standing up helps to some extent.

Persistence

Few people accomplish worthy goals the first time around. Persistence enables you to try again (and again) after you fail. It's useful in any profession that requires problem-solving.

On days you feel like giving up, focus on the immediate moment, and how you can make even just the slightest bit of progress (or fix a setback) by the end of the day.
