There’s not enough time! There are only 24 hours in the day!
Not having enough time … it’s the #1 excuse for not exercising. Deadlines at work, appointments, family obligations … all ask for your attention. Exercise gets shunted off to the side … it’s not a priority.
Well … it should be. Make it one of the important activities of your day … make it a deadline to get in shape, make it an appointment, make it an obligation. It’s that important!
Have you ever heard the quote that goes something like:
We don’t stop exercising because we grow old (or too busy), We grow old because we stop exercising” (and don’t make time 😉
~ Exercise for Success ~
When you’re under pressure … it’s easy to make excuses and not exercise. You’re tired, you can’t afford the time. But, most successful people find the time. And because they find the time … they are successful.
You see … when you don’t exercise, you get out of shape … when you’re out of shape, you can’t work efficiently. In the end, you actually put yourself under more pressure.
Exercise can contribute to your success … it can help you meet those deadlines … be ready for those appointments … have the energy for those family obligations. You see, exercise is a great way to give yourself a break. It gets rid of the pressure … it frees your mind.
Getting more exercise will help you lose that tired feeling. When you get your body moving … your heart pumping … your lungs breathing fresh air in deeply … you refresh your body. The benefits of getting even a little exercise are many.

Even if you only go for a brisk walk … this great exercise will shed some stress and sharpen your thinking. You could waste the whole day trying to solve a problem … or you could go for a good walk, clear your mind, and have the solution handed to you on a silver platter.
Yes … exercise pays off. Not just in fitness, but in a mind and body that function better and give you peak performance. And peak performance means you’ll get things done in record time.
Still think you don’t have enough time to exercise?
What if I told you a secret to getting in shape and feeling like you’re getting a lead on living a healthier lifestyle. “Beating the Clock” so to speak..
Well… Today is your lucky day 😉
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”
– Mark Twain
… if you haven’t worked out in a few decades, set a small goal. Something like, 3 days out of the week, you’re going to go on a walk for 15 minutes each day. Invite a friend to come along for company. If you’re healthy enough to start exercising, progress to adding in some body weight movements such as: Jumping Jacks, Pushups, Squats, Lunges, etc.
Before you know it, you’ll be more energized with less stress !
If you’ve committed (or once was) to working out and now running into a few roadblocks… SIT DOWN, TAKE A DEEP BREATH and look at your schedule.
YOU CAN adjust some of your tasks if you SERIOUSLY HAD TOO. IT’S NOT ALWAYS EASY, BUT IT CAN BE DONE!
