Every woman has used lack of time as an excuse to not exercise. It is probably the most-used excuse in the book. We all know that exercise is good for us. We imagine “they” are right when they tell us that it makes you feel good, reduces stress, aides weight loss, improves circulation, extends our lives, and all of that other good stuff. But so many of us resist it with everything we’ve got and we do our best to fill our days to capacity so we just don’t have time for exercise.
You have to make time for exercise. Shut off the TV an hour early. Don’t worry about washing up the breakfast dishes in the morning. Use your lunch break to get a walk in. We all have moments in our day when we consciously choose something else over exercise. Pay attention to your choices and you will find that you can make time for your health. Consider it a selfish act. Spoil yourself with some “me time”. You will come to enjoy exercise if you give your body the chance it deserves.
How do you find time to exercise? Do you need help scheduling some quality “me time”? Come chat with other women about their health concerns in the Women’s Nest Women’s Forum.
