Think you’re too busy to exercise? Think again.

We all know that our health is key to longevity and our overall quality of life. For some reason, life “gets in the way” and it becomes very difficult to justify taking time for self-care and exercise in our schedule. Here are 3 reasons why you SHOULDN’T allow those circumstances and excuses to keep you from your exercise routine!

You’re not the only one watching yourself…


Your time demonstrates your values…

When you really value something, you make time for it. Exercise and self-care demonstrate to those around you (and yourself!) that you value #optimalhealth and taking care of what needs to be done.  James Hill of the National Weight Control Registry reminds us, “We find time for things we value.”  Think about it, how much time do you spend watching television or surfing the internet? Think you could replace a show with a quick 20-30 minute routine in the living room? We know you can!!!

You tried before and failed…

So we all have those “great ideas” that just didn’t work out the way we planned, right? Exercise and building healthy routines in our lives are no different! Try setting some goals for yourself.  Ask yourself some goal-setting questions:

  • WHY do you want this to work? What’s the bigger picture? (Personal health struggles, being around for family, etc.)
  • WHO can keep me accountable? Is there someone who you can invite into this journey with you?
