The reason you don’t workout is because you don’t have time. You’re going through a patchy time in your life. Nothing is going your way, can’t catch a break. It’s completely fine and understandable. Life can get pretty real and sometimes crazy and the ultimate: “really crazy.” But that doesn’t mean we can’t take care of ourselves. Time is of the essence and we only have a limited amount of it. Our physical being plays a big part in our mental state as well. And if we aren’t taking care of ourselves, how can you expect to take care of those around you.
The cheapest and easiest decision that we could all make is taking care of our bodies. We only get one, it should be our temple. Being consistently active and getting a good workout in can be the greatest investment you make for yourself. Finding that little space in the day to exercise will make your day 10x better. An ideal workout regime would be 3 times a week for 30 mins to an hour. Accountability plays a big part because instead of having a negative mindset and saying “I don’t have time to work out” you should have the mindset of “How can I use my time wisely?”
Sometimes it feels as if we REALLY don’t have time to work out and that is understandable. The best advice I can give to that is to plan your workout around your day. Look at your schedule and see when you can fit a quick session in. Even if you can’t make it to the gym that day the least you can do is go outside and do something at home. Bad weather? Great workout in the living room. There’s plenty of efficient at home workouts that you could do with nothing but your body weight.You can get a great workout in and get those serotonin and dopamine levels to rise and just overall feel better and be ready to tackle the day and reach your goals.
Remember, it comes down to ACTUALLY wanting it. You set goals and now it’s time to stick to them. Look at your gameplan and get determined to make that change because YOU want to. It can’t be for anyone else. Put “being active” at the top of your priority list and MAKE time for it in your day. Like we stated before “time is of the essence.” and we’ve only got a limited amount of it, make it count! It’s going to be hard at times and you’re not alone, but that’s why there’s a community around you.
