Exercise? I don’t have time!
It’s one of the most commonly stated obstacles in the book. If you think about some of the activities you do in a day, you may be able to shorten or eliminate some less important tasks just a few days a week. If not, that’s okay too! Check out our tips for incorporating exercise:
- Squeeze in short walks (a walk does not have to be all at once, you can go for a brisk walk multiple times a day if this fits your schedule best)
- Earlier rise (if you have not found time at any point in the day to squeeze in physical activity, wake up just 30 minutes earlier a few times a week, your body will thank you)
- Make new routines (if you have something you like to do each week, such as spending time with your spouse, kids, friends, etc. use this time to be active together. Go for a walk, bike ride, play tennis! The possibilities are endless. Just have fun!)
The benefits of physical activity are potentially lifesaving. It is too important of a task to put on the back burner. Make it a priority, because your health is a priority!
