Do you find yourself saying you are too busy to exercise? This is a common excuse for not getting in the exercise that you want or need. In order to live a healthy life, you are going to want to know these secrets for finding the time that you need to get in your exercise:
- Make An Appointment: Whether you make an appointment with yourself or with a personal trainer, this gives you a set time that you have available to dedicate to exercise. When you find any gap in your schedule and make an appointment to exercise, you must be sure that you stick to it. You must hold yourself accountable for this time that you have set aside.
- Defend Your Time: If someone wants to make plans during your time to exercise, just say that you are busy. Make yourself unavailable during these times devoted to exercise. Also, plan for the time set aside accordingly. If you need someone to watch your kids during this time, call a sitter. Don't make the excuse that you need to stay home with the kids if you can easily get a sitter, or a family member to watch them for the small amount of time that it takes to get in your exercise.
- Make Adjustments: If there is a time that you cannot get in your exercise in the time that you have allotted yourself because there really is an emergency, don't just drop it. Make some adjustments in your schedule so that you will still have time to get in the exercise you need. Another reason to adjust your schedule is if you have set aside time early in the morning to exercise. Sometimes, you just cannot get up in time, and that's okay because sleep is important and if you really need it, you can adjust your schedule throughout the day so that you can still get out and exercise.
