Everyone knows that exercise is good for us. It reduces stress, makes us happier, increases our self-confidence, prevents cognitive decline, and makes us an inspiration to others as well.
But what if you don’t like to exercise?
What if it’s just not you?
There are many excuses people give for not exercising regularly, but I’ll just state four of them. If any of them resonate with you, consider the suggestions that I have for you.
You just don’t have time.
If you’re struggling with a full-time job, housework, and the kids, how do you find time and energy to exercise? Even if you have a free hour, I’m sure you would rather spend it on things you like to do, or Facebook right?
But wait… What about all those busy people who still manage to find time to work out? President Obama, who’s probably a lot busier than you and me, works out every morning. Other super-busy-successful people like Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour do it too.
If you can’t find time to exercise, here’s a suggestion: Make a daily activity log. Take a notepad and write down every single thing you do every day, and how much time it takes. Do it for a week. Now review it — and see how you’ve been utilizing your time. Are there inessential things you could drop to free up more time?
This may mean no more TV (or doing squats when commercials come on). Or less late-night-Facebook, so you can wake up earlier. Or spending money to delegate unimportant tasks to others. But the benefits you’ll get from regular exercise will more than make up for it.
Most of us don’t look at it this way, but time and energy are finite resources. Dropping inessential things lets us focus on things that really matter.
