“I don’t have time to exercise.”
How many times have you said that? Or heard someone else say it? It’s the #1 excuse for not exercising. And I’m not buying it.
Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. We all have multiple commitments to other people, often including work.
How we spend time is all about choices. Research shows that most people spend 41% of their lifetimes looking at some kind of screen AND we spend 1/3 of our time sitting, yet less than 1% exercising.
Even if you move 30 minutes a day it’s just 3.5 hours – and it’s hard to say “I don’t have time” with a straight face.
- Give up a little TV or Facebook time
- Add a walk to your lunch break three times a week
- Commit with a friend to support each other on those days when you really don’t want to do anything
Once you realize you really do have the time (and you do!), it’s just a matter of making yourself a priority in your own life.
