How many times have you said “I haven’t time for working out or exercising”? Have you said it once in the past month, once in the past week, or everyday?!! And why might you say it? Do you genuinely not have time, or is it an “excuse”? You know there are 168 hours in every week, so if you can’t workout or exercise for at least 1 hour per week, then it maybe a question of priorities! Here are a few tips to move away from not having time to work out or exercise.
1. Put it in your diary!
If you have an appointment, more than likely you will keep it. If you have to go to a meeting, go to the dentist or the doctors, you put it in your diary and you turn up. Working out should be treated the same.
2. Make it a non-negotiable
Do you brush your teeth everyday? Most people do! They get into the habit and it becomes a non-negotiable automatic habit. If you are serious about your health, fitness and well being you should make exercising a non-negotiable.
3. Share your plan with someone
If you share your intent to workout with a partner, spouse, or friend, you are much more likely to follow through with it. Why is that the case? Cause you won’t want to let that person down, and more than likely they will ask you how it went, and they will want to support you.
4. Make it a consistent priority
Often we don’t workout or exercise cause other things get in the way e.g. work, the kids, family or friends. But they only “get in the way” cause we prioritise them above our health & wellbeing. There maybe occasions when we need to put our work, or the kids, or the family first, but it shouldn’t need to be like that all the time, and it’s not mutually exclusive. By that we mean you can do both, just prioritise a few hours per week on a consistent basis for your own workout.
5. Just do it
Stop procrastinating, stop making excuses, stop blaming someone else or something else, just do it! You owe it to yourself and you will get massive return on the investment in yourself
