When we are in school we are put on a schedule, which usually also included some physical activity. Once we are out of school and start working full time physical activity can take a back seat and not a priority for our everyday life. Whether you are trying to Lose Weight or want to lead a healthier lifestyle, here are some tips to keep you motivated.
One tip I think gets overlooked is saying “no” to things. Many times we find we don’t have time for exercise because our schedule is so impacted. In order for you to make exercise a priority in your life, you may have to say no so some other things that may take away your time. Filling up your day with too many commitments, most of which may drain you rather than give you energy, can become a bad habit and will continue to be an excuse you for not exercising. Another tip when time is a factor is to try and multitask. If you go to the gym and are on the treadmill try listening to a podcast or finding time saving recipes for dinner! If you don’t have to time to make it to the gym there are so many online fitness class you can take. Some are even made for those with busy lifestyles and the workouts are 20-30 minutes.
