How to find time to exercise
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tells us exercise can reduce risk for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and some cancers. Routine exercise strengthens bones and muscles while improving mood.
Many people resolve to getting healthier and looking better, but unfortunately, 80 percent of resolutions fail as early as February, according to a 2015 report from U.S. News & World Report.
If exercising more is a goal in the year ahead, the following are a few strategies to make that happen.
Exercise in the early morning before any commitments to work and family hijack the time you have committed to exercising.
Take on less responsibility. Professionals and parents often cite commitments to work and family as the primary reasons they aren't getting enough exercise. Make an effort to divvy up responsibilities at home more equitably.
Embrace more efficient exercise routines. Adapt workout routines to focus on multi-muscle exercises. Work with a personal trainer to make your workout as efficient as possible.
Schedule your routine weekly. Sit down at the beginning of each week to schedule times to exercise in the next seven days. This can keep you on track and help you avoid the disappointment of missing a workout because life got in the way.
Finding time to exercise is not always so easy, but even the busiest men and women can likely still include workouts in their daily routines. It takes 6 months to make it a habit, so don't quit! Connect with a specialist at Club Fit.
