For Those Who Don’t Have Time To Exercise

“I don’t have time to exercise.”

That statement hits a sweet spot with me because my standpoint on the matter is pretty straightforward. You do have time, you are not making time. Time is the most equal opportunity we have. We all have the same 24 hours in a day whether you’re a regular Joe or Warren Buffet. It’s all based on how you use that time.

It’s simple. If you don’t make time to exercise you’re at risk for a huge grocery list of bad things to happen:

  • Countless illnesses
  • General risk of injury
  • Death
  • Extreme pain
  • Early lifespan
  • Joint issues
  • Herniations
  • Obesity
  • Heart conditions
  • Not watching your grandkids grow up
  • Should I go on?

I saw on Facebook one of those annoying little memes that said, “Make time for exercise or make time for illness.”

Although annoying it’s honestly very true. This is one of those ‘pay me now or pay me later’ kind of things. You can spend just a fraction of your time taking care of your body now or ignore your needs and suffer in time. Many aspects of your life that take up your time are inevitable such as work, kids, obligations, house upkeep, etc. the great thing about exercise is that it’s on your terms and you benefit greatly by avoiding (or correcting) the daunting list of detrimental repercussions.

I’m not saying go hit the gym for 4 hours/day, 7days/week. I am saying go exercise every week and be consistent. You’d be surprised how much of your time is being wasted in your day. A lot of the same people that say they don’t have time to exercise are the same ones that ask on Facebook for the new Netflix seasons to watch because they finished their last one.

When it comes down to it we will find what we search for. If you go trying to find excuses why something won’t work or why you don’t have time you 100000% will find it. But if you do decide you can do something or that you will make the time I guarantee you’ll find it.

Make the time. You’ll thank yourself for it later.
