Who hasn’t used the excuse: “I’d exercise if I had more time” in their lifetime? I am willing to bet most of you have. Well, that excuse isn’t valid anymore, as almost all of us have far more leisure time available than we think we do. Unfourtenetly, that free time is usually used for physical activity.
Gathering motivation is hard; believe me, I know. As I have mentioned here in the past, I am a firm believer that if you don’t enjoy your activity, you are practicing the wrong one. It may take some time and a few trials, but eventually, you will find the one that is right for you.
The standard exercise guidelines require about 30 minutes a day of moderate exercises, such as walking. Again, if you were to ask people why they aren’t working out more, they’d say they don’t have the time. Work, family, school, travel, and other obligations, seem to take up all the hours, leaving them feeling unable to sneak in a daily walk or a workout.
However, from experience, I can say that we often underestimate how many hours we spend each day seated in a chair or how much time we devote to watching television. Instead, that time can be used for an exercise of your choice, even if it’s in your room.
So, get up and start your workout. Hopefully soon, I would also publish here a nice workout you can do anywhere, everywhere, and every time. There are no more excuses for not exercising, so get out there!
