Keep Exercise On Your ToDo List Part 4

on

We’ve all been taught from a young age to fit in a little regular exercise. You know it’s good for both your body and your mind. But when your day gets busy, it’s too easy to skip. When you get out of the daily habit, it’s hard to pick it back up. It’s true, there are real road blocks to exercising, and lack of time is just one of them. But you can get through these road blocks and fit exercise into your day — at home or at the office.

What’s your reason for not working out?

Below are some excuses — and ways to beat them:

  • Problem: With work, family and other demands, I’m too busy to exercise.
  • Answer: Make staying active a priority each day. Carve time out of your day. Try before or after work, or on your lunch hour. Then put it in your day planner.
  • Problem: Using a treadmill or stationary bike is boring.
  • Answer: Try watching TV or listening to music while working out.Better yet, head outside for a walk or a bike ride, and bring a friend along.
  • Problem: I’ve never been an athlete.
  • Answer: You don’t have to be an athlete to be active. Walking andhiking are great choices because they’re easy, low-cost and no training is needed. The key to staying active isn’t putting in long hours at the gym. It’s about making the most out of the everyday things you do.

      We all have been there. The key is to make time like we do for eating and sleeping.

      Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily chores.

      1. So true! I had to take a break due to surgery. But once I started back up, I immediately saw an improvement in my energy and overall just feeling better about myself.
