Time - we all have it, but why do we use it as an excuse so much

Updated: Jul 8, 2020




There are 1,440 minutes in a day. How are you using those minutes? Are you using those minutes as an excuse for not wanting to exercise? Let's face it - WE ALL HAVE TIME. We may only have 20 minutes sometimes, but we all have time to exercise and move. TIME is the #1 reason why I hear people are not successful in reaching their goals. If you make it a priority - then you will reach your goals!



HOW TO FIND TIME

~Everyone has 20-30 minutes in their day....Instagram and tik-tok definitely takes up more than 20-30 minutes of my day. Do not think that 20-30 minutes a day is not enough. What is not enough is doing nothing!


~Work out on your days off. If you can not find the time on the days that you work because you work long hour or have to take care of family on top of that - then work out on your days off! Most people have at least 2 days off a week. If all you can manage is those 2 workouts a week - then keep up with it. Over time with consistence you may find you start to add another day in during the week.


~Wake up early. Make it part of your routine. Yes waking up isn't always the easiest, but the more you do it, the more you build the routine.


~Sign up for a personal trainer, small group / partner workout or take a class. Accountability goes a long way! On average people are more likely to stick to the workouts if someone is expecting you to show up. BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE WORKS IF YOU NEED THE PUSH!


~Be honest. Is time the real issue? Or is motivation a bigger one? Exercise has to be a priority in your life. It needs to be part of your routine. If you are not making the time for it, then you are not wanting to work to see those changes.


Make the time.

Schedule in your workouts in your calendar.

Find someone or a group to help push and keep you accountable.

The more you make time for it, the more it becomes a priority in your life...
