“I don’t have time to exercise.”
How many times have you said that? Or heard someone else say it? It’s the No. 1 excuse for not exercising. And we’re 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 percent of their lifetimes looking at some kind of screen, AND we spend a third of our time sitting, yet less than 1 percent 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.
