There are plenty of excuses we make as to why we can’t workout, and the main one is typically that we aren’t able to fit it into our busy schedules. It’s totally understandable too your life is busy! You might have a job working long hours, kids, and extracurricular activities. But, I’m here to tell you the truth and you can still carve time out of your day to get a work out in.
First and foremost, let’s trash the notion that your workout has to be extremely intense and performed at a gym. No! You can take your workout to a park, around the neighborhood, in the woods, to the beach, or in front of your television! The CDC recommends the average adult should get at least two and a half hours of moderately intense aerobic exercise a week. If you want to break it up, that’s only 30 minutes, five days a week.
Solutions to fitting in this extra half hour of activity can occur if you were to wake up a half hour earlier than normal; albeit initially this can be difficult, however I’ve rarely met someone who’s regretted this routine once they were into it. You can utilize the half hour you’re using to watch one of your favorite shows to simultaneously do an in-home workout. You can workout while you’re taking the kids to the park, you can even make kids a part of the workout which is always entertaining for everyone involved. Try staying up a little later, another option is to bump a bad habit such as dessert eating or binge watching TV for a quick work out!
